    This summer will be one year without the front sway bar for me. I've driven a few thousand miles. It has more body roll, but no issues really.

    I appologize for the altercation.. I just totally disagree that it's a good idea to drive without stablizer/s.. They were put on for a reason...

    You gotta release the horses man, they are just ready to get up and gallop past a shitty mustang.

    Using the sway bar is like running the 100m dash with an LCA tied to your wrists. It's like this doesn't make much sense.

    I keep mine tight in the front and a little soft in the back.. Run super stickies (installed about 2-3wk's ago) which I'll need to replace by summers end.. The left rear stock linkage was snapped (moog replacements).. The car was loose cornering left tight to the right.. I don't have the LS1's power so I use tighter settings in the front for a little nose "push" comming out of the corners.. I had a snapped front sway bar on my 95 v6 and the car felt loose al the time and would sometimes hop the front tires exiting a corner hard.. Kind of like a chattering squeal. It occasionaly felt like it was @ the edge of control on uneven pavement as well as causing the car to break differently/unevenly comming into a hard corner which gave it a feel of unpredictablity..

    buddy of mine has a cherokee with no sway bars at all, body roll is somewhat bad, but never bad enough to cause an accident, however, i would much rather leave the sway bars in my ws6 and be able to hook a turn without a doubt in the back of my mind...

    when I was in highschool my dad had a 78 Chevrolet Scottsdale step side. he took it to a frame shop and had it lowered with really stiff springs and new shocks. when he got it back, him and I drove it around for a month before we realized the idiots forgot to put the front sway bar back on!! BUT, the only reason my dad noticed is because he was looking under the truck one day to see where oil was leaking from, not because he could feel the difference....

    Like I said it was put on there for a reason...and it only takes once.. You guys do what ever the hell you want with your rides, and I'll do the same and leave it because there's more to cars than going fast in a strait line ..

    I agree but I like ALL my rides to have the ability to corner hard.. I drive the tread off my tires, rather than spin it off..

    I'd put my stablized z34 4 wheel independant against any f-body without stabalizers in hard fast corner.. I guarantee they'll be picking the f-body out of the weeds,

    "But man! It sure was fast in a strait line to bad most roads turn huh?"

    And what does your car run? If you ain't faster you got no room talking shit. Even I know that.
