Main purpose is to control rocking while driving on the road. Without it, unless you have stiff coils, you will have a lot of body roll. Also, when off-road, it limits articulation. While this may sound bad, it is usually a good thing, since it keeps you from breaking anything. Without the swaybar (I think) you need to run limit straps to keep from over-extending your suspension.I am still learning alot about offroading and i am wodering what is the purpose of a sway bar? And what would be some possible consequences of taking it completely off?
The OEM bushings have never been a problem...As long as we are talking about sway bars, opinons on replacing the stock Toyota sway bar busings with Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings?
I would strongly suggest starting a thread on this question as it maybe very sourceful and easier to look up searching wiseNot trying to hijack this thread, but I am curious... When I put on my SAW last month, their sway bar relocation mounts didn't fit due to the bolt pattern being different on my 2011 FJ. I did as suggested by MetalTech and ordered the ICON relocation kit, but that too has a different bolt pattern. My question therefore is: Is the sway bar bolt pattern new to the 2011? If so, does anyone sale the relocation kit specific to the 2011?
I did not want to run without the sway bar, but as stated above with the kits not lining up, I have no choice but to run without.
