Why would you put the rear in? Ford doesn't even bother to install it on a lot of trucks.

Would you need another alignment after you ditch the sway bar?

That may be true but working both in the aftermarket and OEM industries that may be more left as a cost issue based upon many factors. I dont go off road nor do i have a 4x4. So the need or desire for any fundamental articulation used for uneven ground doesnt exist.

I've spent most of my automotive time in Auto X and or Circuit racing and much prefer the handling characteristics and benefits from this feature. For me its about control and as someone stated earlier on, "It's not a Ferrari"; true but that doesnt mean I want it to drive like a 72 pinto either. I prefer the street truck scene more so than the off road or Dakar 1000 look and usage. Every body assumes its a truck and it should be sloppy feeling cause its a manly off road'r thing. I prefer to take corners at higher rates of speed and prove things vehicles can do regardless of platforms and misconceptions. Sometimes they just need a few things to help make it more unbelievable...

Maybe this will help explain more m wants and needs: http://www.stealthtdi.com/SwayBars.html

It is a leaf sprung live axle in the rear of an unloaded aluminum of fiberglass bedded pickup. The likelihood that it will make a massive difference in normal street driving is next to none. Now if you are "racing" your ranger more power to you a rear sway will help that, however on the street you wont notice the lack of a rear sway bar.
