    Just ordered me a set of extended sway bar links from Suspension Maxx. Used MAXX10 discount code for 10% off. Noice!

    After driving my truck without the sway bar for the last 6-8 weeks, I honestly can't tell much difference. Maybe a slight change on the interstate but nothing concerning. I wish I had done it sooner.

    I had it off for a short time years ago and didn't like it but now I'm not sure why. I'm wondering if it was before I had ICON'S up front. I had those terrible Monroe's.

    The only time I notice is if I need to steer going more than 40-45mph. It’s most pronounced if I’m needing to swerve to avoid something, or if I’m exiting a highway/interstate onto a ramp that does a 270° exit.

    Assdog is right. Monroes are squishy. That’s their claim to fame, if you want to call it that.

    You gotta be careful, if I understood correctly the passenger side mount is different for different years, some within the same year. Two diff’t parts guys and I were trying to make sense of it and failed.

    I'm still curious what a rear sway bar would be like.

    Works for me. You may not be a member of that particular FGT group. There's so many now. I get them confused.

    I did a thing today! However I forgot to video the sound level before vs after. I believe it is about 12-17% quieter.

    Are these the cubbies you are referring to?
    Killmat is the brand from Amazon : https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0751CBXBT?ref=ppx_yo2ov_dt_b_product_details here is link. I bought two boxes and used about 1 1/2. I estimated about 70 sqft including roof and doors but didnt do either. I could do the roof with what I have left I think.

    my craftsman 14mm fit fine? Even when I torqued the main bolt down. But now I'm kinda between torque on the top nut. As of now; stock torque seems good for handling, but the bushings look kinda wonky. I may back it down from 14ft/lbs to 12? Maybe even 10. Trying to find a middle ground between longevity of the bushings/handling characteristics.

    I will note that I originally torque'd the top nut to what the instructions say. But during highway use, the truck seemed a little off.
