    Will this effect my handling at all? My sway bar is at a pretty steep angle and the bushings look pretty squished. Do I need the extensions?

    Not Chevy but...

    My Dodge Ram 5" kit came with sway bar drop brackets.

    I just ditched the sway bar on my 74 Blazer. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    Are you running the ORD disconnects yet?


    Those add a little bit of extra height on the bar ends to help level things out.

    Honestly with 6" of lift your not going to notice much of a differance. just loose it. disconnects are nice, dont get me wrong, ive run em, but one day when i forgot to reconnect em i realized i didnt need them and havent run them since.
