Nice build. If you've still got that rear sway bar under there, I would ditch it. It doesn't do anything except limit articulation. By the way, enjoy the ride on the baja claws... they're bumpy.

thanks, yeah i have the rear on it, i debated on taking it off or not, i wasnt sure if you could, and or what it would do.

my friend removed his front completely, and im iffy on that one.. any experience with the front removed completely?


any real ride or handling differences with the rear gone?


also can someone remove the "oh and HI" from the title? i think its apparent that ive been a member for awhile now

thanks!

Leave the front sway bar on and use discos. The rear you can toss doesn't really do anything. It really only helped with the very weak stock leaf springs, now that you have stiffer leaf springs you shouldn't really notice a difference at all.

To give you an idea of how unimportant that rear sway bar is, DC didn't put one on the Cherokee Country editions, which had ever so slightly stiffer leaf springs. You won't notice a negative change in ride quality by getting rid of it. Getting rid of the front one is a different story... I wouldn't do that unless you like driving around town on three wheels. You call of course.

We must have the same barber.

Nice work. Solid looking jeep. Any plans for those sweet aluminum center lines that you took off?
