What we do at the drag strip or on a race track is up to us. Let's shift the responsibility from the vehicle owner to the shop owner for some perspective. Ask your performance shop of choice to add this note to the work order for removing your front sway bar and sign it.

In my capacity as owner of Acme Speed Inc. it is my professional opinion that a 5th Gen Camaro driven on the street WITHOUT a sway bar is just as safe as it was from the factory with a sway bar. I assume full responsibility for removing the front sway and accept full liability for this action.

Let me know if you can find a shop that will. If they won't do it, why would you?

Jeez Pete.....We get it, we get it....you think it's unsafe!!! As respectfully as possible, that was not what the OP was asking. It is certainly not an "optimum" configuration for a daily-driven street car, I think we get that. That being said, there are many people doing it, who have different opinions about it. Very few of which are negative from what I've seen. Of course no vendor or maintenance shop is going to take physical responsibility for what happens to your vehicle after taking the sway bar off your car. Duh! The same could be said for installing a supercharger or nitrous and MANY other modifications too.

Mine stays off. Any car with skinnies on the front shouldnt run a swaybar, as either single tire can't handle the tractive loads of the opposite side. Take it off, doesnt really do much - the swaybar is far from an essential piece of suspension
