I have 8.5" up front and just left mine off because I have the diesel coils and they are very stiff so there is very little body roll! I say leave it off and drive it for a day and if you dont like it then put it on! :bigthumb:
With it off you will have a ton more flex and some people think it rides smoother. But also some people say that there will be less stabiltiy, more body roll, etc.
Mine is off, and I can't even tell. Made no difference in ride or handling. I can kinda feel it a little when the highway turns at high speeds, but nothing to make me miss it. Made a huge difference in flex though.
My one link broke off and I just eventaully took it off completely. You get more body roll, you will notice this quickly but you will get used to it. It will start to get a little less stable at high speeds on winding roads but I got used to mine and now don't have any trouble.
Here is when I had 1 broken link. You can see how far away the link is from the actual location it should be. Gave me a ton more flex.
