Anyone tried wheeling with their front swaybar disconnected?? I know lots of jeeps and stuff do it, but I was wondering if its safe and worthwile to do to an older truck like mine??

Re: Swaybar???

It would allow for a little more flex up front, but unless you have stiffer front springs then it might be unfavorable to drive on the road without it. I have 8" lift springs and i removed my swaybar completley and cant tell a difference.

Re: Swaybar???

I'm with BogginChevy, no difference that I can really tell. I have 6" lift so it is stiffer.

Re: Swaybar???

i rip the swaybar out of all my mud trucks ( beaters) and i even made rod end pinned disconect's on my 90 . if you have the right springs and shocks you can gain 4 to 6 inaches of front axle travel but be careful on the highway as the softer springs tend to wander at high speed

when in dount, let er feed

Re: Swaybar???

hate to leach off a post but I am planning on geting a 6" superlift with the stiffer springs and running 38's with fender triming. What do you guys think about leaving mine off? I was planning on it cuz I figured I wouldnt be doing the slolom with my ride anyway but the guy at super lift recomended using a drop bracket and keeping it. What do you guys think? Thanks

Re: Swaybar???

That is what i have on mine and i threw the sway bar in the trash 3 years ago. It leans a bit in the corners, but even with the bar i wouldn't be going any faster. If you have 38s you are going to lean. Period.
