    I have a 2003 tacoma with bad endlinks on my sway bar so i was thinking of making some disconnects for it instead. my idea is to use two heim joints with a threaded rod and two clevis pins to connect the link to the sway bar and control arm.

    i think the problem with making quick disconnects for the 1st gens is that the sway bars will still be right there sittin on the LCAs and messing with the suspension right?

    you cant have those just dangling there

    Looks like an awesome idea op I say go for it

    You would still have to disconnect the bar itself but disconnects could make the end link removal a bit faster

    When I take the end links off I just zip tie the bar itself up to the frame. I'm interested in a disconnect for the endlinks...so subd for further info.

    With ball ends at each end it is going to be pretty loud when they are attached.

    Personally I would go with rubber bushings at one end as pictured in the later post.

    Just take the thing off, throw it away, and get some higher-rate coilsprings for the front.

    You won't miss it, believe me.
