Remove sway bars to gain flex ?
Posted 05 August 2003 - 04:02 PM
I was just wondering if i will get extra suspension travel or a better flex if i remove my sway bars?
Will I gain any clearance?
Would my car be too wobbly?

My sway bar is off and the car does handle noticably different.
I wouldn't drive it over 35 on pavement that way. It becomes unpredictable in even slight corners:eek:
Figure out a quick release mechanism if your doing any on-road driving:rolleyes:

So removing it makes the suspension feel ALOT more loose I take it?
Is it worth it to remove it for offroad use?
Did you remove both or just one sway bar?
I was thinking about removing the rear swaybar because I find that the rear end of a subaru will almost always make whatever your attempting, its the front that gets stuck alot. I was thinking keep the front swaybar in and remove the rear, so I can concentrate on what my front tires are doing and let the back wheels flex a little more to adhere to the front better.
What do you guys think?
(sorry for the long reply)

and the flex idea is valid. have fun!

front goes over stuff, rear follows more loosely now?

Driving a car without a front sway bar on the road is a little hairy at times though

(edit): I have no rear sway bar. Remove the front or would it be too dangerous/risky?

Doesn't sound too fun when your not intending to go there
But is the extra flex worth it?
(that is, if you gain any extra flex. Noone has said anything yet about any extra flex if you remove the sway-bar)
someone just said it was just a valid idea..
How much flex gain?
Worth the flex gain?
