Do I really need the front swaybar on my 1982 Brat. I am going to use it mostly for 4wheeling and on my other 4wheelers (jeeps mostly) I just tossed the thing in the trash with no real detriment to street driving. I know I will get better articulation without the sway bar......has anyone tried this?

(and I do know that I can make quick disconnects for it I so desire)

Try doing a search. . . Using "sway bar", this is what came up.

On-road, without the bar, I think the tires seem to roll under easyier giving unexpected results in turns. If I was on the road, I'd keep it and make a disconnect. I'm strictly off-road now and I wouldn't have it on.

Disconnect it and tell us what you think?

82 Hatch, well it started that way....
