Rear Sway Bars ? Need or Not?

Anyone taken yours off and what did you do to extend the end links past a 4.5" Lift?

rear sway bar is only needed usually if u do a lot of towing, or your front sway bar still allows more body sway then u like. take t off and see how u like it. I run NO sway bars on my truck

I added them to mine I instantly felt a difference on a long sweeping onramp I take every day to work

as for the end links I cut them and sleeved them with 1/2 Iron pipe
to accommodate My 8 inch lift

thats exactly what i did on the front..just sleeved , but the rear of mine still have the helper spring so when towing that kind of acts like a sway bar?
