    This is hot, but I'd need you guys to make something to weld onto an aftermarket plate, or new plates for swapped axles, like 60s.

    The sway bar should work with that axle. We are going to be putting some weld on bungs on the website soon for people that dont have stock GM plates anymore.

    Not a bad idea but we're trying to keep it a bolt on system as much as possible. And the pins are stainless and we'd like to keep them that way and we didn't consider weldability at all as a material property for this. If you have aftermarket plates you can weld on the threaded bung and be ready connect.

    And of course you can customize this stuff various ways. A couple of shock tabs welded to the axle tube will let you connect the bottom of the link if you don't have an easy way to tie to the ubolt plate but do have a way to weld it.

    Regardless of whether you're using our disconnects or not, crossover doesn't work with the stock sway bar.

    To answer a different way:
    stock swaybar does not work with crossover
    disconnect kit for stock swaybar does not work with new swaybar
