Good thing the 6" lift inverts the end links, we wont have that issue. You 3" guys are going to have to go with that fancy bolt setup the guy dosnt make anymore... Which would be pretty easy to do
No problem.

I already bought a second sway bar to try to do this to

well, once I get my welder up and running and I get decent at it.

Or even a clamp on, and a cap for the cut swaybar to keep water out.
Are you saying cut a slit in the sway bar so the end could be slid in and bolted? That's a good idea but it would put all the load on the bolts and may not be as tight as this setup. If you notice the plates are angled so the more the bolts are torqued the tighter it is. Also I think the bolts would need to be welded to the back because it would be hard to squeeze a wrench back there. Or maybe I'm not picking up what you are saying.

I don't think you want to weld bolts on because you are going to get pissed when you strip them.

Nothing an angle grinder and rewelding can't fix. I don't think it would be possible or practical to hold a wrench behind the sway bar and then wrench the outside bolt.

yeah, one or two little spot welds would more than strong enough, and easy to grind off if needed. now if you welded completely around the entire bolt head....that could be an ordeal.

Yeah, the head would need to be completely chopped off.
