Rear sway bar

BDS, ReadyLift, Smaxx... You name it, we know about it here.

So with my RTT, hitch spare tire, and all my gear in the rear it seems my rear is sagging about an inch compared to my front. I am going to be slapping in some z71 springs to lift it back up but was debating on removing the sway bar. I see you all prefer to remove them but I kept mine in to help with the extra weight up high from my RTT. With being more top heavy should I keep the rear sway bar in or do you think I'm still safe to pull it?

Thanks

You just have to adjust your driving habits slightly, not slingshotting long curves, not really that big of a deal. But if you've got an rig with an RTT, you've already adjusted your driving anyways. I got used to it after like a week

Oh yeah, and if you've still got the front one in, you won't even notice a difference

Well looks like I'll pull it when I do my springs. Thanks for the help!

Plus your rear end looks way better without it.
