With stock spring at about 450lbs could be dangerous.

But, here was one observation I found. At first I aired up to 32 psi on my KO2s on the way down, steering and handling still sluggish. Then I aired up to 40 psi, recommended for daily drives, big improvement! Those taller sidewalls will make a difference with air pressure alone. Steering was sharper, handling less lean on turn-in. Worth a try.

Iíve got basically the same setup you do. Radflo with 600lb and stock bumper (for now). Iím aired at 34 for dd on cooper disc. AT3ís. Was thinking Iíd keep them a little soft for extra cushion but with no fsb now, Iíll try your 40 and see what happens.

IMO I don't think the front sway should be removed unless someone is running AM coilovers with at least 600lb springs. I first took mine off 2 years ago when I put on my MK84 setup with 650lb springs and haven't ran it since. Your handling will change but the stiffer springs have prevented most body roll for me and I respond to my fire department calls with my rig so I'm going fairly fast with it. I'm now TS'ed with Radflos with 650lb springs and feel even more stable now. I will say though that taking off the front sway was one of my biggest offroad benefit mods behind the rear sway bar.

I will upgrade to 650s once I have my Warn and Hefty alum installed. Thatís a sure thing. Again, like most recommendations here if youíre on stock springs donít do it, too risky.

On that note the RSB doesnít affect much either way, mines been gone for a while now.
