Rear Sway Bar? Do I Need It?

My '96 Eddie Bauer has a rear anti-sway bar. I was wondering if removing it would increase body roll enough that I would notice. Is this a good idea or should I leave it alone?

Re: Rear Sway Bar? Do I Need It?

Unless you just really need to take it off I'd just leave it. I asked this same question when I put on my lift and one guy said he took it off and didn't notice a difference, and he didn't have a lift. I took it off when I put on 6" and couldn't really tell you because obviously there are other factors in my case, but I haven't flipped it yet and I have swirved big time to miss idiots, so I guess it's not that important.

It's a Jeep thing? My Bronco thing will run over your little Jeep thing.

I'd say keep it on the truck. But if you do pull it, hang on to it - you may want to put it back or (after a while) sell it.
