IIRC the easiest way to get at the track bars when I took mine off was, straight in from the front with the front wheels off on the front one. The back one was a bit more painful but do-able, sitting underneath the jeep on the drivers side with the rear jack up about 2 feet in the air.

It was the best thing I ever did, removing them. Be sure to us plenty of penetrating oil, I prefer Kroil or PB Blaster. With a 24" by 1/2 drive breaker bar.

rear sway bar, or rear dumb/stupid bar question

I have a 93 and want to remove the rear sway bar, but its not budging. I can get the bolt to loosen at all. We are wanting to ride in the morning and I am done trying. My question is....is the bar solid steel? If so do you think a dewalt cordless sawzall would cut thru it? Its all I have. I do have a 4" grinder but not really a cutting wheel on it more of a grinding disc.

It doesn't have to be removed to go wheeling.

PB Blaster will help

It is solid steel and can be cut off.

Yeah I know I can still ride with it but I already put in the quick disconnects on the front and have one side loose on the rear. Some of the trails we are hitting tomorrow are a little tougher than the Ines we are use to and I know it will help with my traction.

Man..after doing all that crap to include busting my knuckle and cutting my thumb trying to get those stupid bolts out....it took 45 seconds to cut the damn thing off. Now time for bed there is mud and trails for the new year!

stock yj's don't have rear sway bars is what he was saying... If you had a sway bar on the rear its not factory. While you have your removal tool out cut the track bars off of it too... front and rear

Well might have used the wrong terminology then....it was the round steel the made the Axel raise up if one wheel was lifted. Guess it was the track bar

Maybe I should remove the front real fast too. What is the benefit of the front removal?

better articulation.. better ride... there is an entire thread on it if you search.. leaf sprung vehicles don't need them at all... they were put on to appease the gods of safety at one time... totally un needed though
