    Default Hellwig F&R Sway Bars

    Just installed these the other day on my 08 Z71.... Freak'n Love Them! I had some issue installing them due to the Magnaflow duals, but it all worked out and man do they make this truck handle better. Really tightened up the steering.
    I had Addco front and rear bars on my 04 too. I wouldnt own a truck without upgraded sway bars!

    How much did they run you, if you don't mind me asking?

    I replaced my factory sway bar bushings and end-links with an Energy Suspension polyurethane kit, and it helped quite a bit. I'm sure it didn't make the difference new bars would make, but it only ran me about $40.

    Actually they were a donation from Hellwig because we do so much business with them. That, and they didn't want me to run Addco's bars on my new truck. Friendly competition.

    wow that sucks. I think rolling can happen whether the sway bars are on or not. It's definitely different to drive but at least I won't get any speeding tickets.
