    Well since skyjacker decided my rear spring bushings were rare, costing me 15 extra dollars, I can start putting my lift on, a few questions, should I leave the swaybar on or remove it? anything I should do while installing? just wondering, thanks alot.

    most lift springs are stiffer then stock so shouldnt have anytrouble with body roll. when removing the swaybar depending on springs it will flex more

    I was thinking that it kept the steering in line, kept it from getting all out of wack, learn something all the time. hah thanks for that.
