    I got 8inch superlift, no body lift, If i remove the sway bar would it make all that much of a difference since my springs are fairly stiff, oh yea anyone want my old spacers if i remove it?

    With 8" of lift, I'd keep that sucker on there. You are way high and your
    center of gravity is much higher than the Chevy engineers planned. If
    you were stock or 2", you could get away with removing it. For 4" and
    above, i recommend you keep it. I know there are those out there who
    will disagree. Get some $100 sway bar disconnects and you can keep the
    bar for the road and disconnect it off road. That's the best solution

    I'll take your old spacers, if you remove them.
    Take it for a test drive, and you be the judge if you need them or not !

    Well I'll be damned!

    Let it be known the world over...

    "I AGREE WITH THE EXECUTIONER!!"

    Try it under the conditions you normally drive in, then you make the call. But, if you keep it, I would definitely get the disconnects. They are great for off road. And with 8" of lift, you don't want the body staying with the axle off road!
