    Swaybar Installed

    Just installed a Helwig Rear swaybar on the ram, took it out for a spin, took the southbound onramp at Ryan RD at 65 mph with no problem!

    It's amazing the diference sway bars can make where there was none before...the coronet got a 1 1/8th up front where there was a 7/8th previously, and a 1" rear where there was none (along with upgrade poly bushings, 1" torsion bars vs original .84", HD leafs) and I could almost be convinced I'd keep up with a Miata or S2000 through the twisties (uh, but not really, lol)

    i havent noticed anything, the truck is heavy as shit so it still has some body roll, but not as bad as it was.

    plus the 20s are back on, so that helps in cornering too.

    I put Firestone Sport-Rite bags on my GMT800 with them unlinked, a sway bar, and a NoSlip... made a world of difference. The airbags helped a lot with wheelhop.
    Buy made in the United States. Otherwise your job might be next. Unless you already wear black shoes and a visor with golden arches on it to work in which case your fellow american has already failed you.
