Mine is hanging on the shop wall.. Don't need it.

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!

I've had some pretty bad steering issues and have replaced the Entire system except the pump. This was a last resort. Low and behold, it helped a ton! I've had the sway bar off for years and believed that body roll never really played a part in the slightest. I was wrong. Now I'm more stable over bumps and with compounding counter steering issues. Plus in 2 minutes I'm disconnected and right back to full articulation off road.
Still have a little slop in the steering wheel which ill have to work out. That part has me frustrated a little.

I also put a sway bar on my '79, it was the missing piece of the puzzle.
The slop in your wheel, have you replaced your steering shaft with a HD one?

No but I rebuild both ends with all new parts and replaced the lower bearing in the column.

Depending on what size tires you are running it is recommended that you replace the steering shaft with a HD one. The original shaft was designed to accommodate the oversize tires and the impact of bumps ect..

Replies seem to be 50/50, here....

I still have mine on, but am wondering why.
I'm running a 4" lift with 35's and have to wonder how hairy it would be on pavement without it.

It definitely has to be disconnected for any decent wheeling....

I often Drive mine home unhooked If Its Muddy. Its not too bad If you dont make sudden movements. Definite improvement on a dd at highway speeds though.

The stiffer the springs, the less Its needed.
