that's ur front sway bar, it reduces body roll when cornering. my tires rub slightly on mine, just enought to shine it and i've had no problems.... i would keep it on there though, it'll roll pretty bad when cornering without it

That doesn't sound like his sway bar. The sway bar is not 1.5-2" long and it doesn't run to the front of the truck. Mine has some 2' bars, but they don't run from the control arm. They run from the frame, so I don't really know what you're talking about..

I was confused too. Yes, it's your sway bar. Keep it.

Sure you can, you can't take turns worth a damn though.

Sam, if you want to keep your sway bar, Bill will find away to do it. If you get rid of it, make sure the front is individual not "T" off.

well i really want my truck to handle the absoulte best it can... laid out of course :evil: i really dont ever drive fast becasue i dont want to bend a rim on some damn pothole.

but i do want to take corners fast every now and then so i guess i do need to keep them if bill can which i doubt will be any kinda problem for him :read:

oh yea what about s2s with sway bars i wont be able to get very high right? or is that what your talking about getting individual and not "T" off?

I think what they meant was if you don't run a sway bar, makke sure you are running a 4-way air suspension, and not a 2-way where the front 2 bags are T'd off one line, cause 2-way will roll side to side more.

I think 2k1slvrdo took his sway bar off to be able to hit better sides?

You can still get s2s with a swaybar. Railinchevy from FSC has his still. Just be carefull I've heard of(never seen though) people breaking thier end links.
