Rear track bar

I have read on here a lot that the rear trac bar can be removed. I just took a peek under my 93 and found that the trac bar mount on the axle is broken. I trail ride my YJ and on road drive it. Fix it or remove it?

Remove. You will hear the same thing from 100% of yj owners on this forum. A sawzall may be necessary to get the bolts out!

This won't make it sag or affect the ride quality?

Nothing to do with sag and your road quality will be the same but your off road will be better. The track bar binds your suspension.

Go ahead and remove your front one also. Again no change in on road ride quality and better off road. IMHO leave the sway bar on for better road manners.

In My Humble Opinion (IMHO).........Pull the rear track bar but put a set of disconnects on the front sway. Better on-road manners and then you can disconnect for off-road.

I removed the front and rear trac bars off mine a few weeks ago. I did leave the sway bars connected. Rides better and doesn't handle any different at highway speeds.
Here's my spare parts I have now. lol.
