    Depends on if you mind some minor fender damage from the tires hitting. Personally I would take it off for the weekend

    just toss it alltogether, i lost mine about 3 years ago. you will notice a little more sway, but not enough to make you want it back on.

    yes they fit with no lift. they are like a shackle on the end of the swaybar were it bolts to the spring plate.

    or you can just do what i did and get a lift kit with the invisible sway bar... rough country = stiff as hell, i can take corners faster now then i did with a sway bar.
