    I think pro comp used to make a bar that went between their shock hoops. But I can not find it. Since there are not actually strut towers on that truck I am pretty sure that it would have to mount to some type of shock hoop.

    if you are looking to tighten the way the truck handles, I suggest installing a set of front a rear helwig saw bars and 4 bilstein shocks. It completely changed the way my truck handles. It drives like a 6000 pound corvette now.

    As said above A good set of Sway bars will help you out.. Adding a rear bar you will feel it like night and day. I don't think your 97 has a factory rear bar..But if it does a thicker one will make a differance..

    In a Suburban, that's called a firewall. There are no struts, so no towers. Separate ladder frame type vehicles will not benefit from tying the fender wells together like a pre 2005 Mustang GT or many other unibody types do.

    Heavier anti sway bars and shocks will make a BIG difference.
