1989 sc cougar front sway bar.. worth putting for sale?

like the title says.. i have an 89 sc cougar.. and have the front swaybar discoed .. its a drag car. id like to pull it out to take a couple extra lbs off the nose. is it worth taking the time to pull it out the right way and sell it? it looks like itll be a pita to remove so i was going to cut it into a couple peices and be done with it.

You'll have to drop the K member to pull it in one piece.

However, it's one that's looked for - so I'd pull it in one piece and sell it.

Please don't remove the front sway bar from that car. It doesn't weight that much, and it makes a huge difference in handling.

Sway bars aren't needed for something whose whole purpose is to go straight fast.
