    It's going to be more of a personal preferrence. Some people leave em and just use lowering brackets, some people just take the sway bar off all together and leave it off, some people install sway bar disconnects from ORD in my opinion, its basically gonna be up to you /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Mine are still on, if that means anything /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    that i don't know, i've always had mine in, but you'll get answers on both sides as to the ride...best thing to do is to just try it and see for yourself /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I saw get rid of em. I tow a 17" travel trailer with 6" of lift. My buddy tows a 3000lb car trailer loaded without them & he doesn't have any problem. The normal driving adjustments you make due to the lift is all it takes to get used to no sway bar. If you aren't sure, disconnect it & remove & drive it for a few weeks. I think you'll probably keep it off. Anyway, just my $0.02 worth. (Sorry, no change. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif)
