Swaybar, removing pemanently

I've searched and have found at least 3 people have permanently removed their swaybars, I broke my link in the process of deciding whether or not disconnects are worth it (see my other thread http://www.tacomaterritory.com/forum...ead.php?t=8052 ) and after driving it without the sway bar I don't think I need it. How many people have done this? also I read in one of the other threads I found that this could cause uneven tire wear, any truth to that? Any other side effects than the obvious (body roll) ?
Side Note: I created this thread because my other thread was dealing with disconnects

I haven't had a sway bar for years. Just make sure you know what your truck is going to do when you hang a tight corner or make a panic move to avoid trouble.


Later,

I've had mine off for 5 years now. I've had no problem so far. You will feel a difference on turns and in winds. Like Mike said, be aware of your turns...especially if you're lifted.

I've had mine off for about a year now with no problems. No uneven tire wear that I've noticed. If uneven wear is a concern for you, then make it a point to rotate your tires more often. Most importantly, like the others have said, be sure to take note of how your truck handles in tight and/or quick turns. Although it may not feel drastically different to you without the sway bar, it can become VERY noticeable come time to avoid an accident.
