    I got Hellwig front and rear sway bars installed last month. After driving my truck in the rain multiple times to and fromt work about 30-35 minute each way, I absolutely love them. They have made a night and day difference in terms of safety, control, weight-distribution, greatly reduced body roll, and handling. No more fear driving in the rain and sliding into a curb or someone else. hellwig-sway1.jpg rearsway.jpg

    Those Hellwigs are beefy! The V8’s all came OEM with fronts which are just as beefy as the Hellwig front you pictured. Glad you are enjoying. They really do make a huge difference.

    Just for grins, I see your rear is set to the easiest setting which is where Hellwig says to start (referring to the 3 holes on the sway arm). Try moving it up to the next setting in the middle and you’ll feel another huge improvement in handling. I’ve yet to try the most forward setting. Maybe in the spring.

    Nice! I'll ask my mechanic. I'm the computer guy, so I don't mess with mechanic work.
