Lift Problem

SO today i was installing this lift http://www.4wheelparts.com/Lift-Kits...t_pn=EXPK5075B and on the instructions it sends you its for a few behicle but online they have it for your specific model and i never thought of going online and dowloading them so todat we got to a step in the book and we had a few parts that looked like they didnt belong and it told us to cut the sway bar collar off and online that step isnt in it and now im worried that i done something wrong/messed up the truck so if you dont mind can someone tell me what the sway bar collar does and do i need to order new ones

Not sure what the sway bar "collar" is but I know many guys on here run their truck without a sway bar. I'm not sure why a 3" kit would require any cutting though.....doesn't make much sense. With all I have read, only the 6" kits require cutting.

I don't understand why on a 3" Taco lift you would be doing anything other than unbolting the sway bar from the spindle to get some room to work and install the new strut.

Just completely unbolt it and remove from your truck. Dont know where you cut it but just take it off. If you need more instruction then that let us know

I can tell you that my truck didn't have that collar setup, just the silver piece. However, the silver collar seemed a little closer to the bracket.

Plenty of people remove it....it limits flex in the suspension while off road.
