Jerry Bransford Because of the TJ's coil spring suspension. Disco'ing the rear antiswaybar helps and is normal for leaf spring Jeeps that are laterally very stable but things go downhill from there with the unstable coil springs. The rear antiswaybar helps reduce the tendency to flop (tip) or roll on extremely steep or offcamber terrain.

Not to mention that disco'ing the TJ's rear antiswaybar does not help increase usable flex/articulation in the least. Disco'ing it gives no benefits like it does on a leaf spring Jeep, it only has handling and offroading-related drawbacks.

Sdac626 Why aren't you supposed to disconnect the rear swaybar? I've read u aren't supposed to but why?

Leave the rear antiswaybar disconnected however. And make sure to reconnect the front antiswaybar before getting back on the road.

You should have the same amount of tire clearance stock - no lift with 28 or 29" tires - as someone with a lift with appropriate sized tires - like 4" with 33s. discoing will give you the benefit of added articulation even stock.

nick50471 make sure you secure them out of the way.

03 RUBI Don't see why you couldn't as long as your tires aren't too big.
