Rear stablilzer bar

Just curious if anyone with a four seater has taken off the rear stabilizer bar on the rhino like yamaha's recall suggests ? does it handle better ? Im hesitant to do it especially since I have the four seater. Thanks in advance

Hey Troop, I took mine off and it is definitely looser feeling but I am much happier as the suspension actually works now. I have LT that was binding with it on. No more stiffness when rolling into it in a turn, definitely suggest it..

Ive got a fully built(read:HEAVY) 4 seater and I took mine off...in the dunes its a no brainer...gives you full articulation....if I was doing lots of fire road or pavement driving(az guys) I would maybe consider leaving it on...but in all honesty Ive never been in a situation since I took it off where I wish I would have had it...

If you live in Vegas and need a General Contractor...call Manning Construction @ 497-5127

I have a four seater and wish I would have taken it off a long time ago. Rides much smoother. It no longer bucks through the whoops and going off-camber it felt more stable. I only have bilstein shocks, no long travel.

I tested when I was out at Dove Springs have not taken it to glamis yet.

Another vote for removing it. Should have done it a long time ago.

For stock suspension....

I would not remove it unless you add wheel spacers first... Especially with a 4 seater. With the spacers or offset wheels you will be ok...

For LT Kits.... I would contact the kit manufacturer and see what they recomend...

Also If you remove it you will experience more body roll. At mid to high speed you will really feel the added body roll... It wont hurt anything it is just a driving style. To do it right if you remove it your shocks should be revalved to compensate for the added body roll.... Especially for the racers.... Unless you have fully adjustable shocks.

I forgot to add I have 2" spacers front and back. The body roll was not bad and I felt the rhino was more predictable without the stabilizer. Plus, when it was just me in the Rhino pitching it sideways was more fun.
