depends on the design. if it uses a heim joint or a flex end(johnny joint) ( and is mounted 90dg from the stock mounting position) then it will.

no, that ball joint is broken, it's probably more cost effective of you to just buy new links in the form or quick disconnects, rough country has a set for like 60 or 70 bucks and I think the stock links are close to 40 bucks each.

If you broke it, that means it needs upgraded! (At least my wifey believes it)

Which would be incredibly risky and stupid on a street driven rig! Can someone get away without using them? yes, but the problem is when something that you cannot predict happens and you must react quickly, that front sway bar could save you from a major pucker moment! I don't run a rear sway bar and that's just because it's all of 3/8" if that and doesn't change the ride much at all, but the front, uh uh, I drove for about 10 minutes without that connected and at least on the VT roads it's a bit hairy. Won't do it again!

There are a TON of vehicles on the road that don't have sway bars because they broke. My sisters Sunfire and my moms Grand Caravan are like that. I have seen tons of Jeeps around here that have none because they simply broke... it is a common thing to be missing, and people get used to driving without it.

But, they should always be there for safety.... the excess body roll isn't nice in the corners or lane switches.

I can attest to scary driving with no swaybars.

It isnt scary until you need to lock up the brakes...I had to stand on my brakes going 50 once and my back right tire lifted off the ground because I was disconnected. The stiffer the springs you get the less harsh it is. Once you get nice disconnects, theres no reason to drive disco'd. I did it for a while, when I had my other links that took 3 hrs to disco, but not anymore 8|
