    I plan on it once I get the rear sway bar on tonight. Its been really rainy for the past 2 days too so I don't wanna push it too hard without knowing the new limits yet.

    You can feel the difference, and even after the hassle I had with the frozen bolts I would do this all over again for sure.

    It was, I was really relieved to get that out of the way.

    Put the rear sway bar on this afternoon, and it does make a difference for sure. In some ways the rear doesn't make as much of a difference as the front did, because of the fact that the front wheels actually turn, but it still makes a noticeable change in the handling of the Silverado. There is less body roll, and the rear end stays planted through corners a LOT better.

    Tomorrow I will be going on a big truck cruise, but on Sunday I plan on taking her up Tantalus and seeing how she really performs in switchbacks and decreasing and increasing radius turns. Should be fun

    Lol Kid, Be careful on those decreasing radius turns, especially when there's one of those famous Hawaiian cliffs on the outer radius. They look kind of treacherous & we don't want to see your truck in the want ads in the "bulk scrap metal" section!
