Is anyone disconnecting their rear sway bar when on the trail?

I usually take off my front sway bar all together for trail riding. Never messed with the rear but longer links for the rear would be good. A couple of venders make the longer ones but they run around $90.00. I think if you can use longer bushings to extend the stock link down it might be of benefit and little cost. Thinking of getting some Moog thermoplastic ones that will work for our application soon. Not a disconect but this will lengthen the link a tad.

The front is worth it. It also helps keep the rear tires on the ground and body more level during flexing. The rear might help a little.

I'm back to thinking about this. I saw in the Blue Room a guy made some quick discos for the rear from a set originally used on a Jeep. Should be the same.

Did anyone ever give it a try? Removing and or disconnecting.

You both removed them completely? Does it not feel a little top heavy when cornering on the highway...

I have never even heard of this till now. I am assuming the benefits are purely for off road? And if so, Is it really wort it for how much time you spend on road to off road?

i cant tell a single bit that the rear is off...there is almost to no difference in the handling with just the rear off ..personally i cant attest to the front i havent removed it yet, Brian (autosolutions) has told me that it it s little more top heavy feeling with both removed and he drives 80 to 100 miles a day. As far as being worth it...well i personally would say yes...if any of you have ridden with me i think you can attest to the fact that i will try the harder line, and the harder line tends to need more flex. So i will be removing the front and its easier to do it one time and change my cornering habits than to have to remove it everytime i go out.

The fronts worth it for sure off road Very Happy on road there is a differance in street performance. If you are running a stock suspension this will be more noticeable on the street with more body roll in turns but it actually soaks up the bumps smoother then with it on. This happens because the suspension does not effect the other side while suspension cycles or travels up/down. With the sway bar on both sides are tied together, thus effecting eachside over bumps. Also, the sway bar is limiting the travel while off road allowing for more flex when you need it and it helps with keeping the vehicles wheels on the ground when articulating. Just my experiance with it on verses off.

Since mine is a DD i pop my sway bar on/off when i go on off road trips. When i get some coilovers then i might just ditch the sway bar all together. Cool

Long time since I thought about this. I was removing tin this past weekend and looked at the front swaybar and how simple it would be to remove. But I didn't...who has removed there front and/or rear swaybar and what do you think as far as handling on the highway and improvements off road. I took my rear off a long time ago.
