    Default Removed front sway bar--Is it really necessary?

    Hey guys & gals, let me give you some background on this question...

    My mechanic said that the new radiator I purchased from Ecklers was so big that it was not letting enough clearance to be installed properly, because of the front sway bar. So I told her to remove it, leaving just an after-market spreader bar near it.

    Driving it home yesterday, I didn't notice much instability, but its not a good test because I didn't give it the beans [cause it was raining], so I wanted to ask---did I make a mistake by removing the front sway bar?

    Here's a link to the spreader bar that was left in place.

    Thanks,
    Ivan

    Yes the front sway bar is necessary. At higher speeds and cornering you will notice
    instability.
