    I have all 3 of mine off on my 3 rigs. I can't really tell the difference, although my Sub with its new 12" National springs is a little "lean happy" going around long sweeping turns (like freeway on ramps). I guess it all depends on how soft your springs are (especially the fronts). If they're too soft, you'll need a swaybar. 10" Superlift springs are not soft in any way, so without a swaybar, there is no difference.

    You will get a ton more flex up front. But if you remove it make sure you check that your U-bolts are tight.
