    I have installed on my UDR. What are you hoping to know?

    Did you completely lose the ability of the independent front suspension? I havenít driven it yet, but I compressed the left side and right immediately compressed too.

    And I know the HR bar is much stiffer and brawnier.

    Basically, yes. The sway bar ties the two different sides together, so you lose the ability for one side to extend and compress independently from the other. The stock sway bar does the same thing, but much more poorly.

    This is ideal in high speed applications because it reduces the vehicle's tendency to roll while turning. Sway bars are less ideal where you need the two sides to flex independently such as rock crawling.

    If I was building the UDR into an Ultra 4 car, which runs at speed and crawls over rocks, I'd probably remove the front sway bar.
