    I took mine off, but will be putting it back on. My question is...does the sway bar affect the alignment of the front in any way? I'm thinking not...

    Thinking about taking mine off for a couple days, If I hit a small pothole when I'm up on logging roads it feels like I hit a brick wall.

    One main thing to remember. Taking it off and test driving for a few days isn't going to give you any real world experience of what the sway bar is meant to do. If you end up in a situation where your traveling at a higher speed and need to turn sharply then you will eperience the difference and possibly end up rolling the truck.

    I don't drive my truck for long distances, farthest place I drive my truck is only 20 minutes away. and I don't drive my truck like an idiot.

    Hey so if you're going off roading it's smart to disconnect the links?

    You have to remove the entire sway bar on these truck, you can't just disconnect the links or you are likely to damage your CV boots because of the way the sway bar is routed.
