The only 2 drawbacks to this would being unable to travel at high speed on the road, especially in the corners. This may be a long shot-breaking the gearbox ( when the cv travels to it's upper or lower most travel point ) When the sway bar is connected it acts like a solid axel- take it off and it looks like a true 4-wheel independent suspension. Take a look in the photo's---

After mine broke, say year ago, took mine off. I asked the same question you have, others commented favorably to leave off, ride improved 100%. Wife is much happier.

"Happy wife is a happy life".

Note: will take a little getting use to, back out of it some on curves.

Will do! The one thing I forgot to mention was it's ability to keep from rolling over traveling on a hill sideways. I did take mine off-the bushings were shot, it was easier to tie wrap them out of the way Very Happy

I actually kinda like mine on my 900 but still removed it. The ride is so much better without the bar. Plus it articulates a lot better..

Took it off, wouldn't have it any other way. So much better ride and the articulation is unbelievable.
