I came across this device some 8 to 10 months ago I just found the link for it again and thought it may be of interest? I have no financial or personal interest in this company other than I may purchase one for my NM if they make one. http://www.peppernet.org/articulator/index.html Keep It On The Rough Stuff

If its anythin like normal Swaybar disconnects, they disconnect Pi$$ easy!!!!! Its gettin em back together thats the problem. One bloke has a $150pr set of them, just a pin you have to put back in, it took him 45 minutes to do one day.. needless to say he threw the disconnects, and the swaybars!

The actual idea behind them is good.

That's why they're called "quick disconnects", not "quick reconnects". It only takes the slightest uneven ground to make the locating holes a b!tch to line up.Talk is cheap ...

I am running a GQ diesel LWB and my mate running a NA pajero. Both of our car has disconnected the sway bar(both front and rear) and never put them back on again
Why ?
Because we found its suspension is not as stiff as before (more comfortable ride) without obvious body rolling even making a 180 turn in round about. If you drive it treat it like 4wd, drive it sensibly then you will find the bar is not needed at all.

You can try to drive and feel what it like without the bar on. Then decide whether you want to put them back. If you do need them back on, then try to get a quick disconnect.

Hope this help

I also just ditched the front sway bar on my Pajero.

Didn't make a big diff to the handling, but made a HUGE diff to the articulation.

Wasn't game to disconnect the rear one yet.

The back one is the one to get rid of! You will be amazed.

I run no rear no front, and Rancho 9x.. have them on 1 and its like driving a sports car (yes that hard), have them on 9, and its like driving a marshmallow..

Wish Koni made adjustable from incab shocks too :(

Thanks for all the comments, sounds to good to be true! What are the down sides to Disconnection? Other than excessive wear on the CV Joints. Would you be able to put some sort of limiting strap on so they don’t totally bottom out? And would the wear only happen when your Offroading?Keep It On The Rough Stuff
