Swaybar

So, has anyone removed the rear sway bar? I'm curious how it handed.

That is the difference between you and me, I never go back to the carpet store.

I assume you meant to say "handled". I haven't driven mine without a rear sway bar installed, but considering its size and the weight of the vehicle, I would suggest you would find it quite unstable especially during rapid transitions entering and exiting corners. Try it, but be prepared from some opposite lock work.

I would think that the handling would be pretty bad. Be careful if you test it.

Probably, to paraphrase Douglas Adams; She was a fine ship. She ran like a deer. She steered like a cow.

I don't hang about and when my rear anti-roll bar snapped [it rusted through] I didn't even notice!

However, when I fitted the stiffer [and near new] Porsche replacement I picked up for the equivalent of 50 bucks















I still didn't feel any change!

Thank you. Sorry for the misspelling. I'm going on very little sleep after working two different jobs.
