IFS sway bar disconnecting

I'm headed down to Los Coyotes this weekend in the truck for a clean up sponsored by 4 Wheel Parts and San Diego 4 Wheelers. I'm taking the truck since I'll have room to hold all the trash from the trail we'll be cleaning.
I want to disco my sway bars while I'm on the trail since the diffs are open.
Seems pretty straight forward, unbolt the link at each end and go. Any problems I should be aware of? I've never removed the swaybar on an IFS rig before.

Real straight forward. Just unbolt one of the end links from the lower control arm. Completely remove the pin/sleve and bushings and throw them in the glovebox. You only have to remove one side to allow the suspension to articulate.

Re: IFS sway bar disconnecting

That's the info I was looking for, thanks!

BTW, does anyone make a quick disconnect for it? Or can you drive without it?

I believe Persson(sp?) Off-Road has disconnects for them. Drew (Persson) is a regular in the Toy forum, he could probably help you out.
