The risk is the same as if you completely removed the end link:

The disconnected sway bar end is "out of sync" with the disconnected spindle and there's now the possibility the sway bar end can contact and tear the CV boot.

If it was a telescoping arrangement, one end would be fixed to the knuckle and would move within the other end when a pin was pulled, which would keep its movement controlled. Think about a 7/8" OD rod sliding within a 1" ID pipe.

I don't think that mechanism would be cheap or easy to construct, but it might work.

I think it would be more practical and cheaper to just develope an easier and quicker way to just remove the whole sway system for offroading and then reassemble before getting back on the road. I guess it's relatively simple already, but I want FASTER!!!

Even that could still be a PITA. Aftermarket bumper, winch, skid plate, all possibly in the way. You'd still need to store it somewhere when dismounted, too.

True. If they get KDSS, the least they can do is carry our loose parts.

Can't you just call it an "off road" only type device and "not for highway use"
