How did that kit work? Did you have death wobble you were trying to get rid of? About how much is their kit?

I think some people leave the stock one on, either cause tey don't know what it is, or the instructions for the new kit doesn't say to take it off

I left the OEM one installed with no issues running the Dirt Logic series up front. I even added a Helwig front bar to help with the handling. I have been very happy with both mods helping the steering and handling of the truck.

Definitely doesn't hurt anything to leave it on. In fact it might save you some trouble down the road if something happens to the aftermarket set-up.

But if you do decide to remove it, I'd keep it in a safe place for later use.
