trac bars ?
some people say keep em and others say scrap em. if there is anyone running without them plz let me know.i am running 35x14.5x15 w/soa and i want to know if i can still cruise at highway speeds without too much body roll?

Running 4" spring under, but no issues on highway so far with both front and rear gone.. no sway bar front either but that's because its busted... Not sure how being SOA would affect it.

I'm SOA and dont have them.. running on 35x12.5x15's i'm doing fine.. trac bars are there to center the axle under the vehicle, but by the very nature of leaf sprung suspension the leaf springs center the axle so there is really no need for a trac bar.

I removed mine not long ago and the only difference I can describe is that the springs actually seem to work now. Not sure if it makes sense, but I'm not going to put my track bars back on.....ever.

Anyone still running them that claims they help with their handling has bigger problems than their track bars.

Get rid of them both.

If anything is/feels dangerous or sketchy than the track bars were merely covering the real problem up. Look into your ball joints, TREs, and suspension bushings.
