    Hello everyone!

    Quick question from Norway......

    I'm thinking of ordering the EZ Ride HD front springs from offroaddesign, 4" lift.
    Can I trash the swaybar if I mount these?

    I guess you guys have some opinions about this....

    Thanks,
    Eskild

    Because of the inherent extra stiffness of lift springs, alot of guys around here took they swaybar off and noticed no real difference. Mine's coming off in about three weeks.

    I threw mine in the garbage can when I did my lift kit springs.

    Well even though EZ Rides are a lot softer than stock springs, you can still live without it. I do, and don't miss it a bit. It would be nice to get shocks again though. :blush:

    Because it's my DD, wheeler, and would be towing a a trailer with 4 dirt bikes, I decided to keep my sway bar. I installed 4" TC HD springs + 1" zero rate. I also installed a ORD sway bar correction/disconnect. I like the ride :grin:

    I bought the disconnect at the same time as my 4" lift. Haven't reconnected it yet and that is with some aggressive street and highway driving. Aggressive but safe ;)

    I've got those springs and I too did the ORD disconnects.
    Then I got smart and just took the dam thing off.
    I don't expect it to ever go back on again.
