Tire alignment without front sway bar

A shop that I have used for awhile told me today that they were not able to a tire alignment with the front sway bar removed (2018 4runner non-KDSS). They said that my shocks would break (dobinsons), my braking would be "bouncy", and they can't get accurate camber readings. I have called other shops and they seem to be unconcerned and said they could do it just fine. Two Toyota dealerships didn't see it being an issue. Maybe a little too fixated on it but I was hoping maybe somebody here would have a little insight. Thanks everyone.

Seeing as an alignment is done while the vehicle is static, I don't see how they would not be able to get any accurate readings. Find another shop.

That's what I think I am doing. They have been good for awhile but my past few experiences with them have been suspect. And how the guy led with "alright, so you are missing some parts". Trying to give them the benefit of the doubt though and ask around.
