    I took mine off when I installed the UCAs and coilovers. It definitely has a lot more body roll to it but it somehow feels more planted. I always thought it felt like the rear was about to come around in a corner with it on. Now it just hooks and turns.

    I would venture to say, you had better have springs up front that are stiff enough to combat the "roll" when swerving. I took mine off, because my kings have 650# coils.

    forgot to mention, I dont have any added weight up front, like a iwnch, or plate bumper, so 650# is perfect for right now.
