Not a single human being on this forum is interested in sway bar disconnects?

I'm losing faith in the WK2 community

On my JKUR yes even with the electronic, but on my WK2 with QuadraLift no. Different geometry no real point in my opinion and yes I wheel my WK2.

Re: JKS Quicker Disconnects? or any sway disconnect for that matter...

I would just take them off all together. They are extra weight on the vehicle and likely to bang into stuff when disconnected.

Are you sure the JK disconnects will work on a WK2?

It would be pretty nice to have but I'm not sure it would be necessary. That also doesn't mean I wouldn't do it if someone said "yes they work" lol

I honestly don't see how they wouldn't work. Maybe a little modifying of the post itself

Is that not just an assumption though? I don't see anyone showing a before and after articulation test with sways connected/disconnected on a WK2

Here is mine. I'd be suprised if it would look like this with sway bars on

It may be an "assumption" but it is based on owning and wheeling both and knowing they DO have different geometry. Do what you want but don't expect "articulation" or "flex" from a WK2.

Re: JKS Quicker Disconnects? or any sway disconnect for that matter...

I'm not expecting compatible articulation to a JK. I have realistic expectations of 'more flexibility' with disconnected sway bars

Here is what my jeep looks like with sway bars off. You just don't get this with them on.
