Very easy. Jack up the rear and remove the rear wheels. Unbolt the endlinks from the swaybar, then unbolt each endlink and remove it. Unbolt each of the D-bushing brackets (one on each side) and pull the bark through the frame. Done! Save the old parts in case you ever want to reinstall it...

If you do alot of rock crawling or mudding it will allow better articulation of the rear tires. One down fall to it is if you do hi-speed trail riding you get more body lean in the corners. I have had mine removed since day one and love it!

Xtremgrizz and I have different opinions on the sway bar! Mine broke last Spring and I didn't realize it. By the time I found out it was broken I was about ready to sell the Griz and get something more stable. It had horrible roll in the corners and on side slopes--to the point where I was almost afraid to ride it.

I replaced the sway bar and have been re-united with the love of my riding life: a Griz that doesn't feel like it's going to fall over.

Extreme is right on one thing, though: removing (in my case breaking. . . ) the sway bar DOES allow much better articulation which would be a real benefit in serious rock crawling or mudding. I like to trail ride and explore old logging roads so not having the sway bar didn't give my any benefit at all--and I really hated the handling without it.

Take it off, see what you think, post your opinion! But keep the parts, just in case!

Not that much hi-speed trail riding here, the wife does not care for it that much and she rather be in the technical trail riding which I don't mind one bit cause I aleays have the Raptor for myself for now.

As far as body lean on the side hills I do notice more than what my Rancher had but if you sway it side to side it feels really stable. My shocks are still set at the factory for now but I can unstand what you are saying Rob.
