Default rear sway bar ??

I have a problem with my rear suspension not sure if old parts are tweaked so.im gonna replace all of it to new upgrades, i found some beefy upper and lower control arms and also frame connecters already have traction bars i was wondering if it will have any problems issues not using a rear sway bar??

Our G body cars are known for that twist upon rapid acceleration and significant torque. Twisting too much is eventually going to cause trouble all the way up the driveline.

Whether its street or strip or both...
A rear sway bar is a must!
Even for just daily driving, from torque, rotation of the motor, flywheel, driveshaft etc...
Rotating mass is always an issue and effects every aspect of the car traveling down the road...
It especially effects traction. I would recommend trying launching the car with it hooked up and then try it without it hooked up and youll have a better understanding on the handling, traction.
A lot of it also depends which type of sway bar setup you choose.

Especially in your application.

Yeah i was thinking the anti roll bar or just finding a beefy control arm set up that has spot for sway bar also

My frame has almost like dents from the rubber nubs on the traction bars making contact point and they were flush against frame

Most aftermarket control arms have a spot for the sway bar
