As far as I've seen on every other thread, it's safe. They're just there to shut the yuppies up. I have mine off on my stock leafs

I took mine off a couple weeks ago and nothing negative to report. Only positives. Most of the mystery clunking has disappeared, the ride is much better, and the handling seems unchanged. I'm running stock suspension, so YMMV.

ran with out mine on a 4" lift.. no major negative issue in how it drove. Now if you have very worn out springs.. then maybe it could be an issue, more body roll etc.. but in general terms.. its fine with out them.

Stock suspension on mine and they've been off for a month now. Much better ride IMO.

Trac and sway bars were the first thing I scrapped on both my YJs. If you drive on the road a lot you should leave the sway bars though. Discos are easy enough to deal with...

My sway bar bushings are toast. When it gets warmer I'll take off the sway bar and drive it for a while. If it feels dicey, I'll just put it back on with new bushings.

Just finished 4" Spring lift. New Shocks etc. Kept the front one on, rear one came off with a sawzall (lol) No probs so far. Didnt want to change too much at once. If Wheeling gets hardcore may take the front off and see how she does.

I had to cut the frame bolt on the rear track bar to get it out. The front bar I had to cut. The nut on the frame end came right off, but I could not get the bolt out. So I cut the bar as close to the mount as I could, and left a small piece of the bar. When the weather changes, I'll go after what's left of the bar.

The first thing I did when I got my Wrangler was take off the sway bars and the trac bars. If your springs are soft then it can be an issue. I only felt a small amount of extra body roll as I drove around. Mainly during hard acceleration during a turn. On my YJ I have new 3.5'' lift springs , shocks, and a shackle lift.
Pull em off and test drive it a good amount to see how it feels to your driving style.
