Did the rear brakes today on my XJ, Good Stuff!!! While I was there something kept sticking out, something needed to go, oh yeah the rear sway bar. Let's see if the wife notices on her 5 minute commute to work...LOL.

She drove it today, I asked her if it felt ok because I did the brakes and wanted to make sure it was alright for her. She said she didn't notice anything different. Wink

isn't it dangerous to leave the rear sway bar out?

No, it just makes it seem like you're in a boat. Phantum, Drake69 and Vic have been running that setup for some time now with no dangerous after affects. I have heard of TJ problems when you disconnect the rear sway bar, but that had to do with the coils slipping off I think. The front is still connected though, and the back has the leaf pack, so I don't have to worry about coming undone. I'm gonna run it like that for awhile and see how I like it. I know off road it'll make a difference because the rear will flex more.

Exactly Dale...

With the TJ (rear coils), you not only run the risk of having the spring actually fall out during full articulation...but if you disco the rear, you lose downforce on the tire still on the ground if the suspension is fully extended. The antiswaybar actually exerts downforce on the axle which can keep you moving in low traction situations. No downforce on the axle at full droop = you're not gonna move...it's just a fucntion of how the TJ's suspension works. Plus removing the rear swaybar (again, on the TJ) can contribute to a tipover or rollover on steep or severely offcamber terrain.

Leaf springs are more stable than coils, so on XJ's, YJ's and CJ's it's a good mod.

Having said that...it's time for the disclaimer...Removal of an anti-sway bar should only be explored by individuals willing to slow down and accept that it may compromise the handling of the vehicle in panic situations. If you cannot, in good conscience, shoulder the personal responsibility demanded in a decision to remove an anti-sway bar, I recommend you remove neither front or rear anti-sway bar.

Carry On.

Steve
