    like your front axle is moving around. ive never heard of one breaking, wearing out yes but not like snaping. just look under the truck and see how tight it is. :)

    it will let the axle shift from side to side around 4-5 " if the bar is not hooked up.

    and the wet sponge felling of a good tight truck of that style will fell like a ocean of wet sponges.

    have 1 person in truck. you watch the end at the frame were it bolts in. then person in truck turn the wheel left to right a bit till thay feel resistance. if the end of the trac bar is jumping up/down then its getting close to shot.

    What it FEELS like.....???!!

    It feels like a pick up truck rolled and flipped on top of you.

    It feels like a Life Flight rollout.....I guess helicopter rides are fun...:confused:
