Take it off the frame mount and go without it. You probably won't even notice its gone.

well i think it wonders a little bit more because the track bar it was keeps the rear axle from wondering from side to side
but ill try it and see how it is

The springs will keep it from going side to side. Loose it, it was the best thing I've done to mine so far.

Call me crazy , but i love to have the body roll and everything. I think it makes driving it so much more fun , and i love to see the look on the passengers face when i go around turns. Just drive it like its meant to be drivin and you will be fine with no trac bars or sways. You will looove the flex you get for free.

It does if you have a lift and are still using the stock trackbar.
Couldn't believe the difference it made on mine.

To me, it was a noticible difference. Body roll is increased a little, I kept my swaybar. Handling is just as good, just different. Instead of having a rock hard suspension without much travel (even over speedbumps), I now still have a good stout ride with spring and speed bumps are not a problem.

There is this bridge down the road from my house that used to be like bouncing on a trampoline going over it. Without the track bars I just kind of ride over it without much incident.

Yes, it's that much nicer.
