that's why they make quick disconnects for the sway bar

i dint really notice any driving difference with no sway bar. with leaf springs itll hold the jeep pretty strait. from what i can see quickdisconnects r really a waist of money on a yj. on a tj or any other jeep with coils ude need it because the axle could sway back and forth, but theyve made trucks and older jeeps for years without them and they did fine

If you get much more of a lift on it and at speeds over 40 you will notice a big diffrence in the front. Mine is a DD and it can get dangerous without the front. just my .02 !!

i dont see what there is to learn the jeep does fine at all speeds it may possably need one when i lift it. disconnect ur swaybar and drive it and ull see what i mean. everyone has there own thoughts but fromn what i can see its a waist of money to buy the quck disconnects

Spring under, you won't notice too much of a difference without the sway bar connected. But on SOA applications, the sway-bar helps a lot with the wander and 'top-heavyness' that is sometimes exhibited by that suspension configuration.

When I did my SOA, I threw the Sway-bar away.

I have JKS discos and the whole time I'd have the Jeep, they've been disco'd. I've never thought the ride was bad enough to think about hooking them back up...plus I don't have the pins. But then again, I might hook it back up and realize what I was missing out on.

Sway bars and trac bars are over rated on YJ's.. I took mine off when I was spring over, and still none SOA.. Leans a bit in the corners, but its all good.
Taking the Trac bar off will also give you added flex as well.

And fender flares are overrated.

the real problem of not having a sway bar will show itself if you ever have to make a quick evasive turn on the street. When you swerve and then have to correct you will wish you had left the sway bar on. Remember the suspension was designed by engineers and tested many times over, if it didn't need a sway bar or a track bar why would they ever put one on, they couls have left them off and saved money, right?

I have made some sharp turns and had to swerve to keep people from hitting me because they were checking out my jeep.
No problems, and mine is SOA.. Just gets to leaning really bad, but its all good.
And the thing with the engineers.. Some things get OVER engineered sometimes.. I have one that works for me.. So trust me. I know.

Taking off the rear tracbar really help me climb somethings that I couldn't when my jeep was little. Just that tad bit of extra flex helps more than you know.
