Front and Rear Track Bars

Alright well I have a 4" RC lift on the way and I need to know how much it will affect steering, handling and what not if I were to leave both track bars off. I have to drive this heep about a hundred miles round trip a day so handling if very important.
Thanks
Robbie

Take them off. This is discussed almost every day. Take the trac bars off, and use a sway bar disco.

Yep. I've had mine off for about six months with no problem.

Keep the axles centered. Not really needed with SUA spring leaf suspension though.

I pulled my rear bar but left the front. For some reason I just feel safer that way driving my 3 year old around.

yep take em off. i just installed a RC 4inch kit and i took both track bars and the sway bar off. Eventually i may get some quick discos and throw the swaybar back on, the track bars are gone for good though.
