    Swaybar disconnecting with less than 4\" of lift?

    I doubt the ORD kit would work below 4" of lift or at stock height so anyone have ideas? Thinking a custom disconnect setup. I want to work on the burb and make it flexier. I may go to 4" of lift but I'm not quiet sure yet, probably use my 4" BDS springs that are on the buggy when I do a 3 link up front.

    I did a 4" lift on my Burb and was concerned before the install that it would be too high, but i was wrong, it is actually perfect and i'm still runnin stock 31/10.50 tires too.I believe after the 33/12.50 tires go on it will be just right. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gifI believe you'll like it with the 4, it's not outrageously high to where it's not versital for everyday use, but gives the extra ground clearence needed for better wheelin. DO IT,,, /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    I don't plan on wheeling the burb much, just some poser crawling, and looks, but I will build it to be capable and not just a poser rig. I think I will wait till I can afford the King Coilovers for the front of my buggy then move my 4" bds springs to the burb.

    I don't have the ORD disconnects but I unbolt my sway bar when I'm wheelin'(it's much cheaper). I have a stock height K5 and it does wonders for the flex...

    I unbolted mine... and threw it away! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    I have 150" wheelbase though.... might be more beneficial to handling on the shorter rigs.

    i used to unbolt mine, then got sick of trying to get it perfectly level when i wanted to hook it back up. much easier with the ORD discos. worth every penny. and yes they work perfectly fine with a stock lift.

    I chucked mine too...and it handles just fine. My wheelbase is approx 108". 23 lbs of junk IMHO.
