Do you have a spacer lift? If so did you extend the retaining post in the rear? If not, then you may need to go do that.

I ditched my rear sway bar, im on a 2 inch bb w/ extended retaining posts in the rear.

I know Texaszj and I think Rat say not to take it off, as it doesn't limit flex very much. with it off ive heard you put more stress on the rear track bar


I'd not worry about it if I were you. You should be fine (i think).

Edit: dont worry about it as in leave it on.

Why would you remove a sway bar on the vehicle your wife drives? Just leave it on.

Definitely don't remove the rear sway bar. Get the front sway bar disconnects - and take it out like that first. I think you'll be pleased with the flex that alone provides. For a DD, I wouldn't remove the rear sway bar.

Am I understanding yall correctly? You can use front swaybar disconnects on the rear? I'm totally new to all this and trying to get some tips.

I'm debating ditching my rear sway. It's up to the person, know several people around here to don't have one on theirs and some due. If you're wondering, take it out and do a test drive. You'll feel a slight difference but it will handle most differently in emergency situations. So don't forget to account for that.

You can't use front disconnects on the rear. You don't need to disconnect or remove it and ultimately having the rear is a net benefit.
