The vehicle is not nearly as capable on road when needing to make these maneuvers. Stiffer springs will help a bit.

As mentioned, the FSB is really easy to remove, give it a shot and see how you feel. I thought it was fine until I needed it so you should try to actually test it in a situation which it would help.
Agreed. The stock springs are rated at something like 400lbs. Way too soft to consider taking the sway bar off.
