    Have you found quick discos yet?? Cause I don't know of any that work with the 2nd Gen sway bar...

    As long as you understand what you are doing and take some time to get the new feel of your truck you'll be fine with removing it.

    If you have a 3" lift with stiff coils, I would consider it. If you are running pretty much stock setup, or most of your driving is highway, I would leave it on. I am running OME w/ 885's and took mine off awhile ago. The 885's are pretty stiff, so pretty much no body roll and front can now work independently from each other. It feels so much better now. Real easy to take off, but a second hand to help snake it out from the wheel well really helps.
