No sway bar. No bump stops, and the right conditions. Not much else you can do.

BINGO!!!..lol

any way for bump stops.....what are they for....lol...and im not retarded....i mean what are they protecting?...is it just so u dont rub on the fenders or will my cv's or ball joints bind...i guess potentially, what will it hurt by not having bumps? i never checked my cv for being binded at the time...

Warrior products use to make a quick disco, but it is actually easier and quicker to simply remove one end link when you want to. Quieter too, the quick discos are noisy when connected.

ya i am going to try and make some swaybar dicso's because it kinda sucks on the streets....and i cant get it sideways at all with the l/s because it leans so much that it takes all the weight off the inside tire....one of my friends was watching me turn around in a parking lot and he said my inside front tire came off the ground about 2 inches....but ya im going to get some of those "U" shaped things they sell for making shocks with eyes fit in trucks that have a pin on the top...and mounting those on the sway bar and the LCA and then using heim joints and all thread for end links...it should work pretty good....i might even be able to put a shock in there and it would be kinda like a sway bar that gave a little...not sure how that would work tho...
