when putting in an air suspension, do you remove the front stabelizer bar?

also with the djm upper control arms, and a 5" drop up front with an air bag, will i have much camber?

thanks guys

First of all, what truck are doing this on? Second yes most people keep the sway bar. Third you will always have neg camber with a bagged truck. But depending on the model it will have less or more.

Most peopel keep the sway bar. It will hinder your sides so if you plan to hit sides remove it or you will be replacing bushing. A swaybar is the same thing as the stabilizer.

I'm confused on what you mean by "im going neg 5" from stock ride height and pos 3"

Camber amount is based on ride height. Get your ride height dialed in and have an alignment. I have 2" drop spindles and at right height which is around a 5/7 i have no camber in the front. But laid out i still have it. I can't speak for your control arms tho.

if your ride height is 3 inches lower than stock its no problem DJM uppers/lowers with a 3 inch drop you can go more on a 4x4/awd and wont camber. Stock upper a arms will camber much sooner
