Re: Are track bars really needed?
Yes and No. I dont have a sway-bar or a trac-bar on my front axle right now due to some problems installing my JKS quick-disconnects and a little testing of the suspension. I've gone over 70mph like that on a very long, straight road with little traffic in the middle of th night and can say that it is both fun and scary. The front of your jeep will kinda sway around, but its just the body swaying on the springs, not the wheels moving around on the road. The articulation improves VASTLY. Enough to require longer brake lines, shocks, and a loosening of the spring clamps to realize the full potential your stock springs have. A Telescoping track-bar is the perfect compliment to your sway-bar disco's. If you want to ditch your rear trac-bar you should make some new shock mounts that will allow you to mount your shocks in the inverted-V style for more articulation and better stability.
