Ditch the front one too, it improves the bumps so well but it does increase bump steer a little but hey Its a Jeep!

I have a Skyjacker stabilizer and it doesn't do crap, I might have to look into the Rough country one

You *can* get ride of the track bar if you don't plan on ever going faster than 65 mph on the Freeway. Without the track bar in the rear, get ready for some interesting Ass swinging back and forth at high speed and some serious Death Wobble.

I removed my rear track bar today & it made a dramatic improvement on my ride quality. I wasn't aware you could remove the front. I do very little highway driving, and rarely go above 65mph. Will this affect anything stability wise?

They're only used to keep the axles from moving left and right while driving. but since the Yj and CJ have dual leaf springs they hold the axles in place. Now if you ever go coil over up front then you have to put it back

Removed the Front track bar, albeit was a bit tough. The test drive was incredible, the PO couldn't stand the jarring ride. It now floats like a Cadillac on the roads. It actually absorbs bumps instead of sending jarring sensations up my spine. If you haven't dropped both of yours yet, I suggest you do it now.
