Re: Choosing front sway bar

So I modified the stands and bolted it up. $78.80 invested and the truck drives SO MUCH BETTER! I could have spent less if I went to the u-pull-it and gotten one with all the straps in good condition. I have pictures and more info on my Working Man's Burban thread page 8 about half way down. (The WMB link below) I believe you could run a bar without the bushing stands with a 4 or 6 inch drop.
Very cool, thanks for the reply. I'll definitely try and mount it up without frame brackets and go from there.

Good to know, especially since it's essentially a remake of the factory 1 1/4" bar. Thanks for the reply.
