No more sway bar

Took out my sway bar I like the drive better now. With the sway bar on I pushed my tires too much (TSL's suck on the road). Now I don't even come close to the limit of my tires because the suspension lets me know when I am cornering too fast.



Should I also remove the rear one as well. The only reason I am thinking it should stay is if it is helping axle hop at all. Is my sway bar helping limit the axle wrap or hop? If not I am gonna take it off.

i would have taken the rear one off before i ever thought of taking the front one.

i doubt it really helps axle hop much if any at all

Well the rear one will be off the next time I get 20 minutes to lay on my back. I have been so busy lately I have to schedule time to take a crap.
