I broke the LH rear swaybar link the other week so I fully removed it
here's some pix of how much flex my rig has now(going to remove the front swaybar soon too to see if I can get it to work a bit more)

Sway bars are over rated anyway.

no $$ ATM to get it fully fixed :x

have had the pads & rotors done this week still owe a bit of $$ for that then gotta save up some more to get the water pump done

when it's driving again we'll have to hit either the watagans or sugarloaf or wallaroo

play with the suspension a bit to get more wheel travel
2" body lift
custom steel rear bar with wheel carrier
lift the winch bar up to suit body lift
winch
spotties
full exo cage(wanna keep it as a wagon)
re-gear the diffs prob 4.88's
37" trep or claws
replace auto lokka & rear LSD with air lockers
2.5" exhaust
finally fit my custom 3" stainless snorkel
strap on hairdryer to get more mumbo

truck is in the shop getting the aircon compressor changed/fixed yay :D

then once that's done I'll be ready to hit the tracks again while I save $$ so I can pull the truck off the rd & tinker with it.

:o :oops: wowsers almost a whole yr &no updates

have ordered a superior super flex kit with tough dog adjustable shocks & dobbinson HD flexi coils of a 5" flavour
getting this put in by Jamie down @ the 4x4 specialist @ Charmhaven along with that long awaited & elusive 3" stainless snorkel
I also just picked up some genuine nissan 4.625:1 diff centers out of a 2.8L GU wagon so will have them thrown in @ the same time as the suspension.

then the last mods to get done a bit further down the track will be:
F&R ARB lockers
winch
spotties
tube rear bar
37" muddies ain't decided on which ones though

oh yeah & have done a small bit of panel damage to the RH side rear 1/4 & the drivers guard where it meets the corner of the door sill, both rear door flares have been ripped off while out bush too

so my GU definitely now looks like a proper off roader instead of a shopping trolly/tourer

Oh & my 35's have been on the GU now for almost 3 yrs & are have no sign of wearing out they've served me very well with many long interstate runs on the highway & loads of off road abuse too
