Rear track bar yes or no?

I just put a 4 inch RC lift kit on my 93 YJ and I was wondering if I really need the rear track bar? Whats it even for? I think its just for support, but don't really know.

i gotta disagree, there's usually a huge difference with the rear trac bar gone, it rides much better

get rid of it.

I'd ditch them both. One of the first things I did years ago.
