    mines not lt but I removed it and I like it. it does cause a little bit of body roll during cornering but nothing too concerning. I would guess that in a lt itd be more noticeable.

    By letting the front flex more, you also in turn allow more freedom for the rear to actuate.

    Lets have a contest to see who can throw their sway bar furthest lol. And yeah with the wider arms and stiffer shocks you will hardly even notice the sway bar is gone

    You don't really need to completely remove it.
    I just disconnected the driver-side end of the sway bar.
    This allows both wheels to flex freely. If I don't like the way
    it rides on the road, its easy to re-attach.

    Looking at it the other day, I didn't see how that would happen.
    The front doesn't have that much flex to begin with. But I'll check that out.
