Why do you need to remove a friction sway device when backing? Is it sufficient to simply loosen the friction handle a few turns?

We picked our 19rd up on 6-9 and was on here posting that something was wrong and i was taking it back due to all the noise it was making, what a noob I was. Now after a couple trips and white lithium grease on hitch ball and where my bars go in the noise is not as bad. The axles stil load up and pop so I was looking at this dexter suspension kit and was wondering if anyone has ever tried it. .You will have to copy and paste it will not post as a link and I started another thread on the subject just has not posted yet.Dexter Axle - Trailer Axles and Running Gear Components - K71-652-00 E-Z Flex® Complete Tandem Kit

On some installations, damage to the sway control may occur during extremely sharp turning maneuvers. This can be checked by slowly backing the vehicle into a jackknife position while someone is watching. You should not allow the slide bar to contract completely (bottom out) and the sway control should not contact the bumper. If it looks as though contact will be made or the sway control will bottom out, then the sway control must be removed before backing up the trailer. If not, when backing for short distances in situations where tight maneuvering is not a concern, the sway control can be left on, with the friction turned off.
