Off road it will be great! On the road it will suck and might be illegal with respect to inspections.

Dissconnects are an easy fix and provide street stability and the offroad flex you are looking for.

I think your nomenclature is a bit off.

You have one sway bar that is connected to the axle housing with two swaybar links...

You can replace just the one missing link - but it MUST be the same length as the other side, many lifts use the stock rear sway links (longer than stock fronts) up front so be sure to measure the link you have before ordering! AND you can setup the disconnect (for off road use) at the same time for very little $$.

The wagon should, of course, be as light as possible, but strength should not be sacrificed to lightness, for on any but the regularly traveled roads, the wagon will get many a hard knock...
