If it's that easy I might as well do it rather than wait.

Its not there to suport the pipes etc, it has a purpose in balancing the rear of the vehicle, or something like that
I'd lift the rear wheels clear off the ground, the bolts go through to the torsion bar, you may have difficulty removing the bolts unless you take the weight off them.
