ZJ 2.25" Budget Boost

Hi, I was planning on getting the 2.25" BB with BD shocks. I have recently removed my rear swaybar. So when I go offroading, will my spring pop out?

The rear sway bar does not limit flex enough to justify taking it out. Just put it back on and jks quicker discos for the front.

Ok, well I haven't removed my front sway bar, just my rear. Will it still pop out in the front?

sway bars have no affect on springs popping out...there more for the body roll and is not a good isea to remove. A 2.5" bb will not make your springs pop out...at least I have never heard of anyone on here complain about it.

way too much to list.

with a BB in the rear, you will have no rear coil isolators, so if you get enough down travel, you will drop a rear coil... i have done it before...

my buddy saw the coil fall out, and then he hopped out of his jeep and put it back in.

So if i got the lift, and at full flex, like i'm saying a tire off the ground, will the coil pop out?
