I've heard of cutting the swabar and slipping it up inside the tierods to strengthen them.Oh yeah,read it in that Baja Bugs and Buggies book.
Also my neighbor mentioned it too.

I guess you'll need to decide fro sure if it's going off road more than on road. Everything I've read says to pull it off if you plan any type of off roading. I yanked mine 'cause I plan more off road/snow terrorizing.
I didn't see the tip about using it inside the tie rods. Gonna have to re-read that book I guess.
