Tony 76 Mine is good no problems with shocks yet. I've had the trac bars removed for about 5 to 6 months now.

91CYJWrangler So how well does't that work without the track bar? That sound like suicide for your shocks!

Tony 76 It's cool I've done it too.

yjkid95 Oops sorry I looked over that one.

Tony 76 yjkid95 if you read before you some one else did. My comment wasn't cause of what you said.

4Jeepn While I don't have the trac-bar or sway bar hooked up on mine I would say for the highway its a good idea for the swaybar. If you have to make a fast lane change or a fast steering move you will know its not hooked up.

yjkid95 Never said to remove the sway bar just get quick disco's for endlinks. But ditch the track bars if your bushings are good on the spring eyes.

Tony 76 I've been told if you do alot of highway driving take the trac bars off but not the sway bar. And I took off the front and rear trac bars and it's good on the highway and I drive about 30 miles to work and 30 miles back home every day on the highway and it's fine. But I won't dare take the sway bar off. But that's me.

yjkid95 Yep thats normally. You didn't disconnect the sway bar did you? I would invest in some jkks quick disconnects. That way when your ready to wheel just disconnect real quick when your done connect it again and be on your way. As for the track bars make sure you have good bushings before you remove them but yes track bars are not needed on a leaf sprung vehicle. It will increase the flex and help the ride. A track bar is to keep the axle centered under the vehicle but since you have 4 leaf springs all around those leaf springs do not need any help to keep the axle centered. On a tj you MUST have track bars because those coil springs wont hold that axle center at all.

Xpress My only concern is how the jeep handles without the swaybar. Does it change dramatically, or is it barely noticeable? Particularly interested on freeway driving...

Matcheen Try removing both the track bars and sway bars too. See what that does.

Front axle doesn't flex????

EVERY time I try to get the front axle to flex, it seems to remain parallel to the body. The real axle flexes all day and night, but not the front.

I've tried parking it on the same rocks multiple times, front or back wheel on the rock, and the only axle that flexes is the rear. Maybe this is telling me that I need to remove my track bars?
