    Gonna go to recyclers for sway bar I threw out :whymewhyme: for $50 to make it better through turns as she wallows without... I had always heard it gibes you more flex, but I really am slowing to turn, and womder about panic lane change on freeway, so figure it may be best with it on... IMG_20171113_133303.jpg

    I looked up quick disconnects for jeeps but different for ifs set up than solid axle so dont know if there is a set up for it or not....plus I uave to move endlinks due to lift per install instructions, so likley will have to revisit it.

    But I got the front brakes in... While toyota serviced my prius...

    Then I was going to back her in for drum service, but had hard lock up...think it was how I trimmed caliper on other side, and was wondering why I wouldnt have to do this side, but after this, I may, because I think wheel spoke is hitting the caliper and not allowing rotation... We will see but I got work tommorrow, and its late so im calling it...
