My class doesn' allow removal of stock front end parts...
I had a thought! (scary i know) I was told by a late model guy to lose the frt sway bar, b-cuz it doesn't allow enough independant movement between wheels. again we can't do that BUT!!! what if you were to take the spacer off the long bolt that has the bushings/washers , that would , in theory allow each wheel more independance right?
make sense to anyone, anybody try?
just curious

we are not allowed to remove ours either, but they DO check them often. Once the bushing on the right front pulled through allowing about 2-3 inches of movement before stiffing the suspension up. I think it allowed the front to roll over some, and then stop, and it helped in cornering a lot. It was on rails that night, but I had to replace the stuff with new so not to get into trouble with tech.

if your careful you can cut the bar under the frame bushings then it's not removed but it would be non functional
be careful not to cut out any or it could cause more problems then fixing

I'm gonna try to leave the bolts in the swaybar without the spacers, it will give a few extra inches of travel. Just hope they dont say anything...If so ....may try cutting under the frame bushings...
