Sway Bar Disconects

I am relatively new to offroading, and have never driven with my sway bar disconected. But I was thinking, why disconnect both sway bar links? (Assuming you are planning on putting it back together) If one is free, doesnt that accomplish the same thing?

I understand what your are thinking. But no. To gain added wheel travel, you need to have both disconnected. WIth only one disconnectde you will obtain more travel with one of the wheels. Do yourselt a favor and buy some disconnects,you will be glad you did.
Sway bar discos will run you around $75-90. They are not to difficult to put in and easier to disconnect. I have been running JKS and love their solid construction.
My recomendation is to buy a par and disconnect both ends when off-roading. You'll be happier.

If you have the right tools (grinders, drill press) you can make your own disconnects for pennies.

I drew up a graphic on how the general ones are made up .. there is a little stress on the parts, so make sure that you use strong steel.
