      Is there anything that i can do since i have my front sway bar removed. It feels like the car is swaying alot especially when i go over train tracks or smoother roads. Also sometimes when i hit a bump it feels like my rear moves ( kinda like jumps from side to side). D

      Dont Know if this can be from not getting an alignment or the sway bar.

      I don't think these things are due to you having the front sway removed... I was told it was from being lower than stock height (don't know how that's prevelant honestly)... But once I got my alignement redone they mostly went away...

      As for getting the front sway back in, dorbitz brackets and adjustable endlinks will allow you to run it and still lay frame if you wish...

      You absolutely need an alignment!!!! You are running with too much toe out and this will cause the car to dart side to side over bumps (even small ones) causing the car to turn and thus roll.

      You will feel much more planted with proper front and rear geometry and your tires will thankyou for it..

      You will feel much more planted with proper front and rear geometry and your tires will thank you for it..

      The sway bar doesn't have much to do with it, you need the alignment so you aren't all over the road
