    I have or should I say had the same issue with my 86. After reading some threads on here and speaking with my mechanic I decided to just yank the sway bar entirely and just finished doing it about an hour ago. I took it around the block and didn't notice any difference.

    If your running stock than you will notice a difference. I have 2 inch add a-leaf on my front springs. I took mine off the only time i noticed it was making extremle quick lane changes on the highway. I like it better with it off, but my dad made me put it back on:mad: . But I took it back off when i was doing a brake change. I noticed it looked bent then i got to looking at it and it was being held ont by two bolt:haha: (guess tracktor supply dont have good grade 8 bolts)
