    New to the forum, so if I'm posting this incorrectly then my bad. :confused::D

    I have been trying to find any all options for some good sway bar quick disconnects. I have found another tundra member on here with a diy that I like but would like to see other options and/or opinions. I'm very curious if something like what's pictured below would work. Seems like a very viable options if the mounting would be close to the 1st Gen tundra. Screenshot_20190314-201938.jpg

    With the sway bar disconnected it will allow for better articulation. Better wheel to ground contact is the ultimate goal/reason for the disconnects.

    What 03 tundra said. More in depth it makes it so on uneven terrain if your left front wheel goes up, the sway bar will push up on the right side too. So with it disconnected none of the weight transfer happens and they can articulate completely independent.

    You can probably get something like that to work. As far as the end link I made my sway bar swivels up far enough out of the way so in full Flex I have no issue. The heim joint at the bottom will also swivel down giving you a few inches more room. Although I do have an aftermarket sway bar. It came with my 6 inch lift. Try disconnecting your end links and seeing how much movement up and down you have on the sway bar. This will give you a good idea of how much room you have.

    Ok good to know!! I also think that some Jeep aftermarket sway bar links may work for the 1st Gen tundras, like pictured below.Screenshot_20190314-210300.jpg Screenshot_20190315-105421.jpg
