Removing a front sway bar is one thing, removing the rear is a whole different thing. I wouldn't advise removing your rear sway bar.

If you're lifting your rear tire when you turn you have bigger problems than a rear sway bar.

i currently have the front discoed... there is nothing to average the front tires on turns so let say i'm making a right turn..my right front tire would have less weight but its not connected to the left one (discoed) so it will stay on the ground as far as the shocks limit it... the body sways to the left so it pulls the rest of the chassis to the left.. if your rear sway bar is connected it will try to keep the body and the axle parallel and since the body sways to the left the rear right tire will have very little or no weight on it and it will also get pulled upwards by the sway bar..

for now i'm thinking of conecting the front back up and undoing the rear and then if i feel stable i'll undo the front too..

The RC springs are quite hard so now with the front discoed it sways just a bit more than it swayed stock connected..

your logic is wrong. You need to look at your setup again because, if I'm correct, I bet you do not have longer sway bar links in the rear. It will be easy for your rear sway bar to hit the axle and lift a tire. You should not disconnect the rear. Especially with the amount of lift you have and how much weight you have up high on your jeep. Leave it hooked up. Live awhile.

i do.. i have 4" longer rear links and 4" longer front links

so mr c you're saying leave the front discoed and leave the rear connected?

wouldnt it better to connect the front and disco the rear since the front is quite stronger?

here is a pic of the links..

I'd definitely reconnect the front on the road, that's why they are there!










The other thing you MIGHT want to consider...













SLOW THE HELL DOWN!!!!!

If you are lifting a rear wheel on pavement, you are driving that thing way too hard and are a major accident just waiting to happen! I don't want to see you on the news after you barrel rolled that thing thru the front of a daycare center, having tried to take a left turn at 60MPH!!!

hehe lol even when turning.. let say i'm turning on a left turn at a light... i'm not going more than 25 miles.. it still lifts up and when i press the gas my inside tire starts to spin. I know more backspaced rims will eliminate that but i'm not there yet.

Man, I've not had that happen, and I think our rigs are pretty similar, maybe you do need to reconnect that front sway bar, perhaps that is causing it to unload that rear tire even sooner by allowing more dive to the front? I'd say hook it back up and see if that helps. It sure can't hurt!

yeah thats what i was referring to.. thats why the front side dives since its discoed and the rear inside tire lifts up because of the sway of the body.. thats why i was thinking of discoing the rear and maybe connect the front...

What are you doing driving around with any of your sway bars disconnected anyway? Thats just asking for trouble. Maybe not in normal driving, but if you get in the situation where you have to try and maneuver quickly, you're going to be SOL.

Man, the first time that happened, it would have spooked me right into re-connecting that front bar! Try that first, then tell us how that works for you!

just discoed the rear.. not bad actually.. everything is wet here so i cant really try it harder since it starts to slip around. anyhow i gotta buy an adjustable trackbar to center my axle.. now i have the bracket that came w/ my kit.

again my springs are quite hard so dont sweat it..

now i'll go and check my alignment..

Why don't you just leave the front and rear connected? You never go off road anyway.

Could some of this be because he has 4"s of suspension lift, 2" body lift and still running 28" tires. I would think that his problem for his tires coming off the ground.

Triple, not that I am wishing you ill will, but I think the smart thing to do is connect the sway bars and drive it like that for a while. Also maybe until you get bigger tires, take the body lift out.

I just think you are looking for problems. And with it being winter in Chicago, the first time you hit a patch of ice, and turn the beast sideways without any swaybars....all I have to say is trouble.

but that is just my .02 worth...and I am sure you are going to do what you want.

It won't be the ice that'll cause the problem, it'll be the sudden end of the ice, when he slides onto dry pavement that'll be so shocking!

Got my roll bar padding back on and my new mastercraft grab handles. I also got my light guards on. Anyone want some guards for their brake lights?

Nah, lots of "wannabe gangstas", but most of them are in my wife's classroom, so we can kinda keep track of the shenanigans!

Ol' Smeg might be in a different situation, he seems to be overly concerned about security...

30s man Jeez get it right

honestly though here in chicago, it snowed 2-3" over night.. currently the roads are DRY.. thats why my jeep is all rust underneath.. there is more salt on the road than snow or ice, i hate it.

I'll drive it like that to work tomorow and see how it handles and then if its tippy i'll connect the front.
