this may be dumb of me to ask but should i take the rear sway bar off or leave it on im racing an 81 monte last year the inside rear was lifting off the track in the corners and i did not even think about the read bar till this afternoonn when i was working on the car. could this be part of the reason that it would not plan the rear. the front was not over rollin git was set up good but the rear tire would life about mid way through thanks for the help

i pulled all the rear apart today and every thing is strait with no binds but when i lift the car both tire come off the ground at the same time i have a taller spring on the lf side to help push it down to the track. but like i say they both lift at the same time that y im wondering if the rear bar is the problem and it is locking the trailing arms together and not letting them move independly. not sure if any one else runs a rear bar or not thanks.

If you are racing on dirt lose the sway bar. Sway bars are for asphalt and do not allow a dirt car to "roll" over on the suspension.
