sway bar on rear do u need it or no

i had a 97 grand i never ran the rear sway bar i was checking out my 07 jk and was wondering if i need it or not i do a good bit of high way driving and it has a 3.5 lift on it so i was wondering if it would be a good idea to get rid of it for more flex

I've always known rear sway bars for stability in towing to keep the trailer from swaying side to side. I never ran a rear one on my xj but my wife has hers on her 07 jk. It probably makes a difference between coils and leafs in the rear...

Its there for stability both on and off road. It will allow the suspension to articulate like it is supposed to.

The sway bars increase the margin of safety regarding body roll (over).

People who don't want their vehicle to be the most roll resistant possible, remove the sway bars.

You need both sway bars (not OEM) for the suspension to work to its fullest. Removing the rear is silly and it doesn't hinder anything. It actually helps you.
