Free Lift?

I took the track bars off the front and rear of my 95 yesterday. It sure looks to me like I gained a little height. Even my wife said she thinks it sits a little higher. Would removing the track bars allow the springs to extend a little more and add height?

I have had mine sit taller after being up on a lift in a shop to get the tires rebalanced. Takes a little while for the shackles and suspension to settle back into place.

I don't mean to make anyone a nervous wreck just trying to keep people informed. It would have prevented a lot of problems if I had known to watch for my RC leafs to flatten. Overtime it was not something I had really noticed.
