Sprinter Front sway bar disconnect

Has anyone installed the van compass front sway bar disconnect for the sprinter? I'm amazed at how easy the van likes to 3 wheel. We don't really push the limits that hard so I'm not terribly worried about it but it does seem like a good way to get a little more flex for relatively inexpensive. Any feedback would be great.
Most important feedback would be do you still actually use it when you hit the trails and Secondly Is it easy to reinstall when re connecting.

I have it and I always use it off-road. It's easy to remove and install and the van feels less tippy. I take it off when I air down and reinstall when I air up. Just takes a minute.

Ditto Matt's response above.

In order of use/priority:
1. Larger tires
2. Adjustable shocks
3. Aired down tires
4. Sway bar disconnect

I too have it and agree with other comments. Easy to use and does improve articulation when disconnected while still driving fine. I also agree that other upgrades such as tires make a larger improvement.
