    a zero rate add a leaf its more or less a block that bolts directly to your leaf spring. it gives you the lift that an add a leaf would give but does not increase the rate of your spring. more rate=stiffer ride

    to answer your second question. No you don't need the swaybar. Lift springs are a bit stiffer, and if it feels ok driving then trash the swaybar. Most people here don't run them at all.:)
