Re: '50 3600 re-do. Shortening things up!

The sway bar is 4Ē too long. Thinking about shortening it. Iíve heard both sides of those for and against it but figure I may as well give it a shot. Hereís a couple of vids that seem promising:

When I had the 1/2 ton IFS in it previously, I had the crossmember and center link shortened. The link was sleeved using a similar process.

Found the correct length sway bay, 39.5". I had the option but declined ordering the complete kit which included the installation components because I already had the ones from the other bar and as luck would have it , the heim joints are different sizes...sigh.
