This is what I did on my ranger and sport trac. I don't know why people take off both end links, or the whole bar unless you plan to keep it that way all the time.
If you disconnect both end links you are going to have problems.
Disconnect just one and nothing contacts anything, try it out. Takes a 15mm and 16mm wrench and all of about 2 minutes.
FYI, I had a rear sway bar on both truck and did the same thing just fine.
After I had the sport trac for a while, I bought warrior products quick disconnects.
The disconnects for the front of the 95-01 Explorer is the same as the ranger. It works fine, but it is noisy when connected. There is a tiny
bit of slop you you'll hear it over bumps, gets annoying. It disconnects very easily, but reconnecting is a PITA to get it aligned perfectly before the pins go in. You also cannot disconnect both sides (in front). I ended up taking the front disconnects off because a) the noise, and b) it took forever to reconnect by myself.
Looks like they removed the product but I'm sure they can make them again if you called them.
On my sport trac;
I tried thinking up other ideas for quick discos too, but it is REALLY easy to just pull an end link out, and super easy to put it back in.
