if you haven't, do it and you should notice the difference.

i left mine on, for street driving. it flexes well with just sway bar disco. many here have ditched both trac bars and sway bar and had no problems, thats the beauty of leaf springs, simple and sturdy

my experiences fwiw

-ditched rear track bar- could tell NO difference on road. got a little to moderate amount more flex offroad

-ditched front sway bar- could feel a little more body roll on road, but not scary by any stretch. got a considerable amount more flex off road

-ditched front track bar- steering felt less precise on road. not scary, but definetly more vague. got a considerable amount more flex off road

this was all when i was on 31's on a more or less stock-ish suspension
