yea sway bar in front, trac bar on both axles. i drive my jeep with only the front trac bar hooked up, didn't notice much difference in on road manners when i removed the rear trac bar. sway bar been disconected for a long time. i get some body roll but not too much, then again my under geard 4 banger doesn't have much power to drive fast. my lift is 3" leafs and 1" shackles and 2" body

The yjs are the same suspension set up as the cjs and the cjs never came with trac bars and only the later ones had sway bars.
The first thing I would tell u to do is get out the torch cut em up into itty bitty pieces and throw em away I do it on all yjs that I lift for people.
