Re: Quick release anti roll bar?

It was your blog Dave that gave me the idea. But would that work for a vitara? Would it catch on anything? If it does work I can see alot of vitara uses doing the same.

Hello 'all' ;) I still check-in from time-to-time, but it still seems quiet on here :( We're still active, 'laning at least once a month (Yorkshire tomorrow!) Currently maintaining the big blue S200KYS Jimny and building up a more basic / lighter / daily driver red Jimny too, as time permits... Nice...
