    I see ORD sells a swaybar disconnect kit that will go along with 2" of lift. So...suppose I'm looking to go with a 4" lift, is there an easy way to modify this one or is there another company somewhere that sells a kit for a 4" lift? 'preciate you.

    I believe the disconnects also work fine on 4" lift.
    I have them on my 4" lift.

    You might want to post a message in the ORD forum /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    The swaybar kits from ord will work fine with a 4" lift. They only raise the swaybar up 2 inches though, because if they went any farther, one side of the swaybar brackets would hit the frame. I have ord's kit with a 6" lift, and there are no problems. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    btw, ya might wanna take ur anti-away bar off and drive around for a week or so to see if you even need/want one or not. I took mine off a year or 2 ago and havent missed it since. Had the disconnect kit fot a while, then sold it.

    someone once said that you can't have a sway bar with cross over, you guys know if thats true? (as in fizically impossible or something like that).

    My disconnect works just fine with my 6" lift. I like to keep my swaybar connected for the road because it makes the truck handle a lot better. I have soft springs though so if you had stiffer springs you may not need a swaybar at all.

    The new Draglink goes right where the sway bar lives. I never missed my sway bar.
