Yes it does help. The suspension can articulate more since the sway bar isn't limiting the travel. The 4x4 off road guys do it alot with sway bar quick disconnect kits, then reconnect to drive on the road. Without a sway bar at faster speeds the body will sway on every turn of the steering wheel.

I took mine off and like it at speeds under25-30 mph over that it pushes through the turns and handles like shit. It is back on now.

Thanks for input guys. I am aware of the increased articulation without the sway bar, but I am concerned that it will mess up my higher speed turns on the trail with too much body roll
