Last Friday I removed my sway bar . it was banging against the front bumper mount box & made noise on most bumps in the road . Sat . I went for short ride & I could not notice anything different in the handling . Sun . I went about 100 miles out in the country a little aggressive in a few turns . Still not bad . I’m thinking of leaving it off . Anybody else do this ?
Took mine off 1000 miles ago with no negative effects. I was like you, it clunked against the front skid plate on bumps, and was very annoying. I have cornered and driven aggresively, (as much as possible in a 50 year old VW chassis!) and my car performs as expected. I am not putting mine back on.
