steering stablizer ???

I have a dual setup in the front with procomp es2000. I bought the truck with it already lifted and I noticed that the factory one is also still on. Does it make a difference if I take it off or leave it on? I know that my steering wheel is impossible to turn at a dead stop.

Mine was aggrivating to get off as well pretty sure there a place in the shaft to get a wrench on it also. and if its that tight soak it in some wd-40, pb blast. or you could try heating it up. worse case cut it off.

well i finally got it off I had to pound on the trac bar right next to the bolt and it poped right off. It made a considerable difference. Its still pretty tight to turn but I can turn it now as opposed to before.

I know mine is a pain when sitting still. Looking into hydraulic assist. And I'm only running the factory stabilizer
