    Does anyone sell the bushings for the ends of the sway bar that bolt to the spring plates? I can only find the ones that attach to the frame.

    I bought a complete set (frame-side+spring plate-bushings) from energy suspension. The brackets for the frame-side bushings are also included, they even are zinc-plated and greasable.
    Try this link:

    Just take the sway bar off. I took mune off last week and I cant tell a difference at all, other than it rides a little smoother.

    What is and what should never be....

    A lot say to remove the swaybar cause you don't feel the difference. But I disconnected mine with the ORD disconnects and drove it on a winedy(sp?) road and felt a big difference. I think mine came from ORD also. Both the disco's and complete bushing kit.

    That kit also includes the bushings for the spring plates?

    Constipated people don't give a crap!

    I run the disconnects on a 6" lift and 35" Boggers. I can really tell the difference driving on road with them disconnected. The truck feels real squirrely on turns and on curvy roads. I'm sure most would be able to feel the difference on 4" springs since they are supposed to be more flexy than a 6. But I guess it depends on the stiffness of the spring and shocks.
    As for the bushings, you can't beat ORD's service.
