denisbaldwin Heat, PB Blaster, Impact Gun. That's how I ended up getting mine off, as they were rusted into place.

The swaybar does a good enough job on its own of keeping the body parallel to the axles. At this point, the Track Bars are overly redundant with leaf springs.

Common thinking is that they were a case of overkill engineeering in response to the CJ rollover scare in the 70/80s.

The sway bars you can leave on, do quick disconnects or take off entirely. I took mine off entirely. Leave them on with discos if you do a lot of freeway driving or if you often have to make sudden turns.

jokerchief462 QDsa for the sway bar are the way to go so it just takes pull the pins and your ready for the trail. But they need to installed when you return to the road. Trac Bars can be removed by choice. Mine have been removed permanently and I love it. For a DD you will have to try and see what YOU prefer.

Sway bar and/or track bar removal.

Now im thinking of undergoing a project. Making quick disconnects for my sway bar. now a few question. Can i just replace the pin? or will i have to replace the stock sway bar itself? Now i have heard bad things about removing the track bar, also heard that if your going to disconnect your sway bar, that that's enough to help climb over things. Mind you this is my daily driver thats why i like the quick disconnects for my YJ. Plz give me some feedback and will take pics when i start the project. OHH ALSO ANY ADVICE THAT YOU HAVE ON THIS PROJECTS IS APPRECIATED.
