New to GMC - quick question, quick answer: how does removing the swaybar permanently sound to you guys? On my Wrangler I took it off and had no bother at all, but looking at the '83 Jimmy front suspension the axle is mighty close to bottoming out (in fact both my bump stops are shredded), plus it's a big hefty truck to drive around without swaybar on. I mostly drive on sand, tracks and dunes, and maybe 5 mins on slow city road daily. Reason I'm asking is both frame bushings have completely disintegrated, and it's now metal on metal. Must either put in new bushings or remove.
