    I installed a set of sway bar Quick Disconnects from ORD. Since my truck is a DD, and it sees more street time that dirt time, I like having my sway bar connected to my Dana 60. I feels a lot better with all new bushings on the sway bar too.

    I have had my ORD disco's since the spring and I love them! My burb was VERY scary without them when the wind blew. After they were installed, it is very stable in the wind. The only problem I have had is hitting the bracket when the front tire is stuffed while articulating.

    I have been a PH5 man for over 25 years. There was a time, back when Fram Filters where made in America, they where considered the best; but I guess it is time to update my habits, and start going with WIX filters, if I could find a store that carried a reliable stock of them.

    Is this when the bracket is connected or disconnected?

    Looks good. How difficult was the install?

    I am old enough to remember that. When I first started driving back in 74, gas was about .53 cents a gallon. During most of the 80's gas was about .75 to .85 cents a gallon. It was not until the early 90's that it went permantly above $1 a gallon.

    The hardest part is where the sway bar bushing brackets connect to the frame. In particular the one sway bar bushing bracket bolt that is nearest the steering box. If you have a steering box brace, and oil cooler lines, it will be a Beeeeaaatch. I completly removed the long steering box brace, in order to get to that one bolt. Placing the sway bar ends into the ORD disconnect brackets, and inserting the pins is a little bit of a struggle, but no major problem.

    It is when the swaybar is disconnected and secured in the bracket. I have had to slightly straighten the bracket a few times.

    I saw the swaybar disconnects the other day on southernspeeds off road rig. They looked really nicely made and easy to use he said. I'm gonna get some too.
