you will get axle wrap but you can put in a antiwrap  bar to fix that

It will travel up easier since with it all it serves to do is to flatten the springs as more pressure/weight is applied. It will reduce the load rating by removing it, I usually will add a long leaf to the pack when removing it since you will lose the the same amount of lift as the thickness of the leaf. Personally I would not remove it without putting something else in place..... dare I say add-a-leaf.

As to axle wrap I've never noticed any substantial increase without it.

Did you actually look to see if you are limiting your travel? If it hits the bump stops, it hits andyou cant gain more

yeah it does flex very well at all i also need to do a shock hoop for the back because there to long theres only an inch an a half 2inches of the shock showing im "guessing" thats the major reason :hammerhead:
