Default Rear sway bar quick disconnect recommendations?

Thanks for the add. Is there a good off the shelf option?

I don't think any worked well on the 4Runner, as they tend to interfere with the lower links when diconnected

FYI.
This is a rear shot of my 2007, 2 inch All-Pro coils, stock bump stops, All-Pro lower links, (with a Johnny Joint on the frame side). Also - STOCK sway bar links. I have, and have tested, longer rear sway bar links, but I don't like the feeling of my rig in turns at speed on the highway. Do you need more articulation that this? Oh, I have a rear E-Locker too...

Short answer is yes I would like more articulation than that.

Long answer:
I bought the rig used with a 3" Toytec lift. Previous owner disconnected rear bar. My thoughts were reconnecting rear bar with quick disconnects and removing front bar. Offroad I would have none. On-road I would have rear only.

If rear quick disconnects aren't an option, I might reconnect the rear bar and remove the front. Or I could always remove both. It's not a daily driver but it's not a trailer queen either. It get's driven on the highway to the trails.

Good plan on swapping out the use of the sway bars. Can't hurt to try.

I tried disconnects on the rear, and the swaybar links tended to interfere with the lower axle links. On the front, I have recalled people doing a few attempts on quick disconnects, but don't remember any that ended workign that will in the end. On the front with LT or doing coilovers with firmer coils offset removing the swaybar quite a bit. On the rear people with a lot fo flex did a completely different type of swaybar setup vs the normal swaybar on the the axle itself, but rather a swaybar on the frame that then connects to the axle. But it normally takes the space by the spare tire location.

I have been daily driving mine without a rear sway bar (as it snapped in 3 pieces) for 4+ years now and could easily out corner my son in his 1997 3rd gen that had both sway bars still installed.

Still have the front bar installed. 3" of lift front and back

ON these trucks the front is more noticeable than the rear, there was a guy selling a disco for the front and rear MStud I think was his user name. The Rear is attached to the axle so a disco is going to interfere with the lower links and possibly get hung up on it. The front one was deigned to have a heim joint that allows for extra movement up/down, so it is not a true disco but seems to work. The heavier the truck the more noticeable the removal of the sway bars are but if you go off road ditch them and don't look back. I haven't had them in about 8 years now. Front or back,
