But of course. Both are gone.
I sometimes wonder if I should have kept the front, to see how much affect it had. Either way, keep in mind that anti swaybars are a NAS market item, they dont exist in other markets.

Yes, the body does roll when making turns. I'm used to it now, but dont drive it like a 911 either. I dont remember how much there was before I took them off, so I dont know what difference they made.

I think, 255/85R16 is the perfect size for Defenders.

IBut if your Defender is about 2" higher than normal, you can try 280/85R16 like this 110 in the picture.... I think they're only available from Silverstone.

Not really. I removed the swaybars at the same time as I replaced the worn out stock shocks/springs with OMEs. The handling was about the same before and after. Yes, there's some body roll if I really yank it but I drive it like the glorified tractor it is and not a Corvette.
