only carnage on this trip was lost sway bar link bolt, and bent sway bar link on the front suspension. i'll have to straighten that back out or just get some sway bar disconnects.

i was surprised how much smoother it was on this trail with the OME springs and the front sway bar disconnected.

i also tested out the new design on the rear pumpkin protector. the rocks got hurt and the diff cover lost a little paint.

i took the whole rear sway bar off. i had not used it in forever and the links were too short. it rides like a caddy, i love it. i just need some new front struts, mine are hammered, and maybe add a small spacer up front.

Getlost, if i remember correctly, you usually have your rear sway bar disconnected. Did you have them both unhooked this time?
I remember back when people were first experimenting with disconnecting these on the XK, its was mentioned the unhooking both front and rear at the same time could cause you to roll over. any insight on this if you tried it out?

Ross,

Awesome pictures! Man I am jealous... I wish I had trails like that where I live!

Also - Looks like you could use a little trail protection on that passenger side. I know a guy...

mine never feels like its going to flop over. i have pretty stiff springs all the way around. i personally like to keep my suspension lower and have the largest tire i can fit even if i have to do alittle trimming.

i drove home on the highway @ 70mph without the front hooked up. i could hardly tell it was off. the ride is much smoother.

i took the rear sway bar off about a year ago.
