Pitch it........

Then put an Antirock in the rear. :D

I tried unhooking it offroad after reading everyone say there is no reason to do so. I didn't like it.

There was absolutely no useful gain in flex and it fealt creepy on off camber side hills. I just did it as an experiment, because I like to see things for myself rather than just accept what I read online. But from my experience, there is no real gain from not having it, and there are certainly draw backs.

I will be installing a rear AntiRok when I do the outboard and rear coil correction, but until then the OE rear sway bar will be staying in place (with the height appropriate extended links).

As a matter of fact I broke the rear sway bar while running home made extended links (a little while after my little experiment), and I went out and found a stock take off to replace it with.

That falls.under the old liability issue, if he rolls it the first thing that will happen is you will find yourself in court. I would leave it and.make.him sign a release for.the.modifications I am sure you do not have insurance or a ASE certification....Jon
