    Thats just the sway bar, no disconnects. Check www.offroadunlimited.com Professional rock rigs have the same type of sway bar.

    On SFA modified Chevys I'm told if you don't they tend to wander and bump steer. Willyswanter may be able to comment. This is what I was told when I wanted to SFA my 95 K2500.

    My truck has 4" springs and I don't need a panhard in the front... With that truck it looks totally useless.

    The red link going from the frame to the passenger spring plate. Its to locate the axle side to side. Commonly used in 4 link setups that use this |||| link setup vs. diaganol link(|\/|)
