question: Has anybody installed a rear anti-sway bar and how hard is it to install and were does it mount at exactly??????I have heard the truck handles alot better but sometimes they squeak. I just got off the phone with autobauhn and they want 179.00 for the rear, is it worth the money?

VERY easy to install. it will transform your truck IMHO.

Like said, they are cake to install. They can squeak but that is the poly bushings not the bar itself. If you ever replace your stock front bar bushings with poly bushings they could squeak as well. A little lithium grease can fix it. They do help a lot....worth getting IMO.

usually its the bushing the squeaks. You must grease the bushing before installing. skipping that step will cause squeaks for sure. bars like the hellwig we carry comes with bushings and new droplinks.

for comparison, the stock rear bar on my truck weighed 9 lbs. The hellwig I just installed weighed 28.5 lbs.....

let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks. I am the owner of Lil Devil. We actually have our 1st color ad coming out in Truckin' magazine in a few months.

As I mentioned before, I do offer discounts to members here so just drop me a PM and i will do my best to save you guys some $$$.

Also, if you don't see it, just ask. Other members here will tell you that I have access to hundreds of manufacturers and can order those hard to find parts....
