Hellwig front sway bars. Two thumbs up!

finally installed them. would have been last weekend but hellwig only set the long bolts for a lifted truck , and my ace did not carry 7/16 in a 6 1/2 length so i went to napa. who screwed up 5 times on getting two bolts... enough of the rant. i bought a thread cutter and made the 10" bolts into 6 1/2" s myself today. the sway bars are a true bolted on install. everything lined up went on ez. now with my rear sway bars and the coil overs and help bags and asst leaf spring helpers the truck goes through the turns flat. guess that's why they went away from bench seats...put the slide in camper on and drove around the neighbor hood . huge improvement here. won't be going through the chicanes at jackie stewart speeds but huge confidence builder to take the rig to Tenn. for muddy roots. side note needed to remove the curt front receiver hitch as they both wanted to be in the same place... moved the hitch up to front bolt and mcgivered a plate and bolts so the front is bolted to the bumper with two bolts on each side. steel bumpers rock!!!!

200 mile review

brakes , bushing , and sway bars will be the first three preformance mods i do to any vehicle in the future. 200 miles mostly city and about 50 highway. getting a feel for how the truck rides with the camper before taking it to tenn.. the leafs and airbags and coil overs helped a lot , but the sway bars... if you do not have a set on your truck , get yourself some. Huge difference on side to side . changing lanes there is a HUGE difference on the rock. whole truck sits flatter going around turns.
