This thread is for information purposes and if you choose to remove your sway bars, it's your responsibility what happens to the rig and your health. If you think it's un safe, then make your own thread and see who gives a ****.
I don't care about your fancy disconnects or your telescoping track bars. If I wanted to discuss that I would make a thread about telescoping track bars and sway bar disconnects.
I put a lot of time into publishing this write up. Don't come into my thread and try and tell me that I'm stupid or that I do anything without consideration.
THAT'S what I like to call, a Head Shot response!!
If you can't be safe, be deadly.

I took my sway bar off the other day, and I would suggest just using a wrench before taking a grinder to the bolts. My bolts and nuts came loose with not too much drama. This way, if you don't like the ride, you can just put it back together without having to hunt down new hardware that you just destroyed.
My 94 yj has a nice turn to the right every once in awhile. When I added my lift I had to replace the trackbar due to the bolt being pretty much plastic welded to the bushing. I replaced the whole trackbar but icouldnt get my hands on the right size bolt. Since then I forgot where I wrote down the correct bolt sizes for the front track bar. I am pretty sure that it was a 12mm fine thread. Can anyone confirm the size and give me the right length I would greatly appreciate it. I've been looking all over this site and the Internet and can't find a damn thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
stm144 - Depending on other projects and whether or not mine will come off easily, I'll probably be removing my track bars this weekend. If I like the ride better, I'll send you my bolts if you cover shipping.
Or you can go to a pick-a-part/pick'n'pull and get them.
Wrenching isn't the problem, it's the brains attached to the hands...unfortunately, I'm lacking some of the former so that's why I'm asking you guys!!
Track bars are worthless on a leaf sprung vehicle, period. What you should keep with a stock height suspension is the sway bar. This is becuase the springs are softer and worn out from years of use, you'll have more body roll than with new, stiffer lift springs.
If you're having driveability issues, there is something else wrong besides the track bar, because CJ's don't even have track bars, and 95% of us YJ's on here don't either.
