Lets your suspension on torsion bar rangers work as independent front suspension = smoother ride off road but a little more sway on the highway. Not too much though.

Good to hear you liked it, did you gain much body roll?

it lets the independent front suspension actually function independently lol
when it's connected, it forces both springs (or t-bars) to flex no matter which side experiences the 'bump'.

i concur, it's a lot smoother - but i needed mine back on to help keep my loads from tipping over in the bed.
