I used yjames idea. I had taken off the rear a month ago and it rode nice. Now that both are off it almost rides like a cady

So I finally bit the bullet after almost knocking the fillings out of my teeth over bumps and took a sawzall to my Track bars this weekend... I wanted to get them off the right way in case I had to put them back on but that damn Torx.... so sawzall it was! I can honestly say, I am pissed at myself for the last year of kidney busting rides... Its still a jeep and not smooth by any means but I will say there is a night and day drastic difference between running with and without track bars. I am glad I did it and even after almost an hour on the highway at 65-70 MPH I am glad... The Jeep does not wander and is not squirrely at all. Sawzall those puppies off!!!

I took mu trac bar off today was it the right idea

I have been reading and I thought that it was the right thing I do. I have a 94 yj of course and it has the 4cyl. I don't need the trac bar correct?

Show me another leaf sprung rig that has a track bar in the rear, only YJs do . Truckshave been built for century without them and they are all fine something else in your rear end is screwed

Hopefully I will have everything back together tomorrow and the only thing I'm really worried about is the transmission. It has been grinding and not lettin me get into gears. Drained it today and bleeding tomorrow.

How much street driving does the vehicle do? If its primarily a trail rig then I say leave it off. Two of my buddies pulled their sway bars off and since they get trailered to wherever we go its no big deal.

You ain't stealing my thread. I won't be really taking it off roading a ton just cruising really on the main roads. So should I put it back on?

No. I ran my YJ with no trackbars no sway bar....never had a problem, whether crawling on the trail or doing 75 on the hwy.
