    Comp definetely yes, although I doubt a competitor would rely on a sway bar "switch". Trail, K10A was looking for opinion, IMO they make a cool sound when they hit the cement.
    As far as what vehicle marque typically has the least pinstripes/most bling...but I guess I don't understand.:D

    I'd like to run as light a spring rate as possible on my ride....that can lead to sway....so I might try fabbing some if I need sway control.

    You can fab on one of those Anti-rock systems.....I was down at teraflex and they had a built blazer in there with them front and rear. I would only use them in a coil-over rig.

    Exactly. If you want something highly tuned for OffRoad, that you can switch for Highway so you don't flip off the on ramp, a disco is it. For most though, SFA with leaf springs would be good for inspecting a roadrace course. Take-it-off is good-enough.:haha:

    I am quite happy with my discos, rides like normal with it connected, and sways and leans like crazy without them, also a HUGE difference when wheeling with them connected and removed.

    It all boils down to your own preference, your rig, your dirt/mud/snow/sand/blacktop.:D

    sorry I fail to see why coil-over only? if you are running really lgiht spring rates its going to sway. My Coil sprung S10 sways like crazy(no shocks yet though).

    Dont be a wussy, I tossed my swaybar a long time ago and my blazer is a daily driver running on custom Deaver Springs that are really soft. You just get used to it after a while.:D

    I don't mind a little sway. But sometimes I drive thru the mountains near me. Steep grades and sharp curves, and I don't like to slow down, and my truck will be heavy. :D

    It depends on the driver and vehicle. It seems aftermarket "lift kit" springs are often more resistant to sway than factory springs.
