Re: should i remove rear sway bar?

I haven't had sway bars since the long travel. Don't even think about it anymore.

Try disconnecting without removing and see if you like it.

Re: should i remove rear sway bar?

Do you get more body roll after you removed your swaybar? What kind of riding do you do??

Yes you get more roll but as stated got use to it pretty quick.

Ride Glamis and desert. Something I've never tried to do allot is slide the back end. A little is fun but too many vid's of rolling due to improper slides. Also if your accidentally in AWD things can go bad.

I thought you can disconnect the rods without too much problem to try it out???

Re: should i remove rear sway bar?

I have removed my front, and left the rear connected... it gets little hairy driving fast in the hard pack with the rear disconnected. You get way better articulation in the front without them.

Re: should i remove rear sway bar?

The 2010 RZR-S does not have a front sway bar only the rear.

I think if you are talking the straight RZR removing the front sway bar would be just fine but I would be a bit scared to get rid of the rear one.

Let us know what you do and how the ride turns out.

Re: should i remove rear sway bar?

I liked the rear sway bar off. Then I installed the progressive springs and Loved it even more.

Rzr Weber Sold. Need new ride desperately!

Re: should i remove rear sway bar?

I took my front say off and it wasnt cool IMHO for the dunes...I put it back on right away. I have a standard RZR. RZRS's dont have a front say...only a rear. Your best bet is to remove it and see what you think...if you dont like it put it back on.

Re: should i remove rear sway bar?

Same as trailblazer. Once it broke, just removed the pieces. I think it's a little goosier in the rear without it.

I think the answer on whether you need it depends on the type of riding you do. If it's low speed rock crawling kind of thing, you can probably do without it. If it's higher speed duning, might want to leave it.

Re: should i remove rear sway bar?

I think it also depends on springs, rear sway off with stock springs is squirly, with after market springs like the King Progressives, it rides fine at high speed. I have a RZR no an S
