Thanks, Peter, I haven't experienced more roll than before after the back stabilizer was disconnected. Maybe it's the heavier springs that still reduce roll and the fact that the front stabilizer is still connected.
Yes, I'm interested in your quick release kit. How much?

Peter Connan wrote:As far as I am concerned, stabilizer is a misleading name for this item. It is correctly called an anti-roll bar.

On a double live-axle vehicle, it has almost no effect on the vehicle's stability, but does reduces body roll a lot.

My car has been running without anti-roll bars for several years now, and I am quite happy, but a number of other guys don't like it.

Unless you have a lift larger than 2" (50mm), or carry heavy roof loads, it has almost no effect on the ultimate rollover angle of the vehicle, or on safety, it only affects how the vehicle feels.

IF you are interested, I am making a batch of quick-disconnects...

My rear anti-roll bar was removed a few years back, and it definitively makes a difference to body roll on the GU. Mine either with roof rack on or without, when empty does tilt to the side on a long bend more than with the anti roll bar. If I'm loaded, again sometimes with the roof rack, sometimes without, it takes a little more concentration to do a long bend at highway speeds. Unsafe, no I don't think so. It's all relative I guess.
