Fullsize Sway Bar Disconnects

Let's face it, you can buy anything for a Jeep. Owners of these vehicles have enjoyed the luxury of sway-bar disconnects for years. These nifty devices allow you to retain the vehicle sway bar for on-road handling, but pull two pins, and you significantly increase the suspension articulation for better off-road performance. If the vehicle has a super-soft suspension, a sway bar for on-road control is even more important, and the advantage of not having the sway bar hooked up off-road is greater.

The Warrior Products quick-disconnects for GM trucks, Blazers, Jimmys, and Suburbans come assembled with everything you need to install them. They fit trucks lifted 2-6 inches.

Now there are options for owners of '67-'88 fullsize GM trucks, '69-'91 Blazers and Jimmys, and '67-'91 Suburbans. We brought you news of Offroad Design's sway-bar quick-disconnects for these vehicles ("Chevy Sway Bar Correction," July '97), and now Warrior Products has another design available for these vehicles.

Warrior Products quick-disconnects work on mildly lifted trucks and bolt between the sway bar and the stock mounts on the axle. They are 4 inches high and help even out the sway-bar angle on lifted trucks.

You don't have to jack up the vehicle or pull off the front tires to install the disconnects, but we did so to take these photographs. Break loose the massive bolts that connect the sway bar to the axlehousing. This truck only had a 2 1/2-inch suspension lift so the sway bar didn't have end links. If your truck has been lifted higher, it may have links that won't be used with the quick-disconnects.

Now fullsize owners can have their articulation and handle the road too.
