sway bar

Anyone ever notice small body roll from stock sway bars not being tough enough? If you did what did you replace them with? Thanks

I broke a cheesy Rough Country sway bar relocation mount, holy crap, I thought it was going to scrape the running boards when it leaned towards that side! OEM mounts moved under the frame, OEM links in place (kinda worn, but ok) and it doesn't lean near as bad now. In fact, doesn't really lean much at all for a 7200lb truck with a 4" lift and 35s.

What rear sway bar!?!

Helwig front bar/OEM rear bar is use on my 2006. The front Helwig is a BEAST compared to the OEM front. It took out the sloppy dip in the front when hitting hard curves. It's a different driving truck to say the least. I didn't think it would make that big a difference so if you get one take it easy till you get the driving feel down.

I have air bags from Ride Right ( Firestone ) when the bags are up when loaded don't really notice it. Mostly I notice it when the bags are deflated driving around town.
