Ditched the front track bar, sway bar and rear track bar now, feels like a whole different vehicle, no regrets! I like it even more now!

I haven't driven with a rear track bar for 9 years.. When I did my Ford 8.8 swap, I noticed it didn't have a place to put the track bar back in.. And I didn't feel like welding one on.. So I just chunked it.. After reading this, I will ditch the fron when I do my lift.. But I will keep the sway bar and just some longer disconnects..

When i dumped by track bars and sway bar i quickly realized i needed new shocks. Replaced those with a new stearing stabilizer. Spent 200 miles on the highways yesterday with a canoe on top and it drives fine. But for safety issues i will be putting my sway bar back on. Started the homemade quick discos just waiting to find someone in my area to do a couple of welds for me. (Any mass peeps interested, the fish arent biting out on the swift river (amherst area) this week.)

leave the sway bar. The trac bars do nothing in a leaf sprung rig and were put on as an overeaction to back press the CJs got for being tipsy. Same reason the YJ was lower than the stock CJ as well.

How important is a track bar,

got a issue with my track bars on my YJ after i got my lift on. Any chance I can get away with getting it 45 min's away without them ?

no no no no no don't even try. the track bar keeps your axle centered under the jeep. without your track bar and your jeep on a lift turning your steering wheel will shift your entire axle back and forth.

Its just one of those things you don't leave the house without. You'll just end up hitting something right off the bat.

He's right, as soon as you remove the trackbar the fuel rail will arc on the battery, killing you and all the kittens in a ten mile radius.

How about you throw away your track bars and carry on?

Toss them out. You don't need track bars on leaf springs. Ever.

A traction bar however is something entirely different...

All about that unibody life.

This thread reminds of traffic cams over ice patches.

You sit and watch one oblivious person after another get in the same wreck.

"Oh this guy still has track bars? Let me enlighten him."

"Idiot talks about OEM and how it *feels* dangerous; ignores thousands of pages"

Rage ensues.

Rinse and repeat.

I run both track bars with new bushings and scraped the sway bar after I lifted it and she is solid at 75on the highway. Perfect to go straight on the beach right off the highway

ROFL!

I've had my track bars off for a couple years now, but still have my sway bar with disconnects. My favorite part about not having track bars is when I hit a dip in the road and the suspension moves in a predictable straight up-and-down motion, instead of lurching to one side like a drunken bum.
