sway bar!?

ive heard that on a 4th gen. prelude when you lower it, to get better handeling it is ideal to remove the sway bar i was wandering if anyone from expierence has done this to a 5th gen prelude or knows if youd get the same results?

i've heard of a couple 4th genners doing that. they swear it works. though IMO on a 5th gen, just get an aftermarket sway bar for the back. i got a progress one and i love the difference.

again, thats for a 4th gen. 5th gens are different. in my situation i wouldnt take it off mainly because i have a really stiff one for the back... and as it is now, if i just lightly press the brakes in a sharp turn i will loose the back end really quick. if i remove the front one it will only make it worse. if anything im actually thinking about getting a stiffer one for the front.
