I've seen a few debates around the 4x4 forums regarding sway bars, disconnects and fully eliminating them. Im debating disconnecting mine for a while and seeing what happens, has anyone here taken theirs off permanently ?

Mine are gone but my truck isn't a daily. It's not bad depending on how heavy your springs are and what shocks you have. With my rte springs and Ranchos on a low setting I sway in the wind but on like a 10 it's bareable. It's worth the flex to throw them away if you have hd springs

I just pulled mine off and it is a bit scary at first. It wanders more and sways on the highway. Not a dd so I am living with it.

I have been told, and I agree, that you should have newer, stiff shocks and HD springs. Otherwise you will likely leave the blacktop unwillingly.

Daily mine without sway bars. At first you notice a big difference but now I can barely tell.
