    Well you're not a paying member so you can't search but you can probably scroll through the pages not to far back and find this covered a million times... it depends on the truck, drive it with it disconnected, if it feels safe then take it off, if you feel safer with it connected, buy the ord sway bar disconnect kit.

    I took mine off and have never put it back on. I would suggest taking it off and driving it see how you like it. You will porbably never put it back on.

    You get some more body roll through the corner's,but just slow down. I ditched mine years ago. My rig will be offroad only now,but ditching the sway bar increases alot flex in the front.

    I drive a Burb, and with mine i really NEED the swaybar connected, body rolls and sway waaaaay too much for comfort...

    picked up those ORD swaybar discos, and love it,,,wouldn't do anything else unless it's a trailered trail rig use only...

    I couldn't tell a difference with it off, and that's at 80-85 on the Oklahoma freeways. I have a dually though, so the extra width of the rear end might have some more stability. Either way, I don't notice anything missing at all.

    I have the ORD disco laying on the garage floor, along with the bar. We just did a desert camping and wheeling trip last weekend. We were going home Sunday morning so there really wasn't much traffic. As I was winding through Los Angeles at 70-80 mph on those old freeways, I wanted that sway bar. So I'm thinking of puttin it back on, with some improvements on the disco feature.
