Has anyone added the 1 -1/8" rear sway bars from Hellwig? If so, did it improve your cornering? What about your ride quality? Thanks,

Not yet, but I have one on order. It is supposed to be here within ten days. Once I get it installed, I'm sure I'll post my observations.

Got one on my 03 Quad cab hemi, Made a big difference in cornering, especially the on ramps around Dallas and FortWorth. Use to have to slow up or the back end would try to come around, seems like it holds the road a lot better. I'm sure my ride will be better when I replace the factory shocks.....Hope this helps..........Jim

I ordered it at http://www.summitracing.com. Cost was around $164. I'm pretty certain the shipping is free, but -- there's a handling fee of around $8 or so. That's still the cheapest price I could find. I most always order my stuff from them anyway. Summit is a very customer oriented business, and they have always been cost competitive.

I ordered HEL-7651. Right now, they are on back order.

Thanks B.H....,I'll check Summit out. Are you running stock shocks? I just changed mine out. I've put in Monroe Reflex's. It's posted a little further down in the column about shocks. They ride much better and lean much less than stock.

Just tried to install the Hellwig 7625 rear anti-sway bars as listed for a 2002 QC with a 2" drop....., wrong part number (application) from both Hellwig and Truckperformance.com. I hate when that happens!

Hey, jlhram & Mazz, did you have to drill into the boxed frame to install the tie rod ends? How do they mount? If you have any Pics, I'd appreciate it. I'm starting to get discouraged regarding this project. Thanks.

No drilling on mine, had a plate that mounted to the frame. And brackets that mounted to around the rear end....Will try to get a few good pics for you.

Great post jlhram..., I see that you have the GF shackles.., I've got the DJM's for a 1.5" drop...., Did you have to relocate the spare tire too? Thanks again.

No I did not have to relocate the spare, I just loosened it up and centered it up when I tightened it. The left arm rubs the tire slightly if you turn left and go up a steep incline at the same time, but other than that it's fine.....good luck
