Anybody disconnect the front sway bar for better articulation? Result?
I thought it looked like you had way more articulation than I do. Did you just remove the end links, or take the bar out entirely?That's the best mod you can do, and it's FREE! I leave the rear bar hooked up, but the front has to go. I'm a big fan of keeping all four tires on the ground as much as possible. It has caused zero issues when running fast, even when running hard on a local MX track. Disconnecting it also doesn't affect how much the suspension travels, so limit straps are not necessary.

I just removed the links and tied the bar up out of the way. If I loosen up the front bumper sometime so I can get the grill out I'll remove the bar completely.I thought it looked like you had way more articulation than I do. Did you just remove the end links, or take the bar out entirely?
Rumors of Shock Therapy E-Disco would be awesome.I run quick disconnect links on the front of my X3 from CA Tech and wouldn't have it any other way. Great product but not sure if they are making any for the KRX
Can-Am X3 64" Front Quick Detach Sway Bar End Links
I always disconnect for slow trail riding / rock crawling. No reason to limit your travel and not have true independent front suspension.
For higher speed stuff they stay connected. Anyone who says you don't get additional body roll from disconnecting is not pushing the car hard/fast enough. You WILL get more roll at high speed.
If you decide to keep it disconnected all the time it's a good idea to move your front crossover rings down in order to engage the larger springs quicker thus reducing body roll. This is what most of the X3 shock tuners do for those who want to dump the front sway bar permanently.
What do they cost? I think they are around $1500 for a Jeep which would be pricey indeed.Until you saw the price... I would have a hard time justifying the price of an E-disconnect when I can pop those CA Tech's on/off in under a minute. I bet if guys here start emailing CA Tech they would build them.
It helps a ton with articulation. That was one of the first things I did when I brought my KRX home. I just removed the links on mine, and tied the bar up and out of the way. Someday if/when I loosen up the front bumper and can remove the grill, I will completely remove the bar. Just can't get to the clamps with the grill in place.how much does it help with articulation?
You just unfastened the end ball joints?
