Default Sway Bar Quick Disconnect question

I was wondering if anybody new of a way to do this. I just want to have the ability to make quick turns on the highway if necessary and to have the better handling off road. Over on ranger forums it says that this Warrior product will work, but the image in the picture is the wrong item...not sure if I'm willing to make a $120 dollar misstake...

bro. why you bump so much? haha

and no idea. id trust his statements. i go without a sway bar 24/7/365 and i dont mind it all. ive done many quick manuevers in emergency situmations. i mean i just wouldnt trade the better ride on the street. just dont tailgate people and dont weave through traffic and youre good. (99% of the time at least)

Ok sweet, I have to head back to school tomorrow, and its a 200 mile drive. I'll be doing it without the swaybar and seeing how I like it. If I feel safe and don't feel like I'm in danger I'll just remove it, if I don't feel safe I'll pick up a set of those quick disconnects

Does this mess up the alignment?

Mmk. The reason I ask is the place I do my lifetime alignment said it would void my lifetime alignment if I removed it

You're looking at a generic picture. Warrior 85203 has the correct post-to-post setup and length for 98+ torsion bar Rangers.
