    Removing the sway bars will give you more flex and more travel.. but they won't make the truck ride any higher.

    And please take into considerataion that your truck will roll (read: body roll) a whole hell of a lot more around corners w/out swaybars. I have driven mine with and without. If you are cautious you can deal without, but I am an agressive driver and I will not drive on road without them!!!

    Oh yes and for a cheap way for 2" lift go with coil spacers and a add-a-leaf/shackles.

    If you want more, you are in luck! There are several kits available for the firest gen.

    I'd like to know this as well. I've never seen anything on these boards regarding the removing of sway bars giving lift.

    With my AALs in the rear(stiffer suspension) I don't have anymore body roll than stock with my rear swaybar disconnected. Since I too am an aggressive driver, I wouldn't even attempt to drive without the front. Like everyone said, you don't get any lift from this.
