I seen CAVHOOAH did this with the his TERYX and it got me to thinking so I got out today and removed the rear sway bar from my rhino along with taking pics. I also took a few measurements before and after to find out I gained over 2.5 inches of wheel travel with all wheels firmly on the ground and all four shocks as stiff as they will go.

Been debating on doing this for a while and when I heard all of you recommend it I had to try it and I think it is going to work out real well.

it looks like more but I put a level on top of the tire to measure to my garage floor and that was the difference I got. but if your shocks are not as stiff as mine I would think you would get more plus this is with the tires firmly on the ground. Eat

Just wanted to say I gained one more inch of articulation(for a total of 3.5 sense sway bar removal) and got a little better ride quality today by loosening my shocks up a bit.

Where do you have the pre-load set on your shocks -- you said you loosened them up a little?

I have mine on notch 4 right now, and thinking of backing them off to 3 just to see how it rides. Notch 4 certainly doesn't have a lot of body roll... but the front hits a bit hard when you go airborne over a whoop or something...

I have been maxed out on 5 today I backed it off to 3 so far so good but time will tell if the ride is good and it starts bottoming out I will look into 27's or a 2 inch lift. we'll see.
