    I need to get rid of the front end sway on my 67'. I'm running 6" Alcan's,custom hangers,and longer shackles. I have close to 10" of lift. Truck is fine except cornering at speeds over 30mph and it's not stable :eek1:. Can I run some type of z-link from the frame on one side to the diff on the other :confused: ?

    Yes.



    By the way, you mentioned having a 6" spring with 10" of lift. Where is the rest coming from??? Longer shackles don't add THAT much.

    I'd like to see a pic, but a panhard bar would certainly help if the springs are trying to puke-out sideways on you (which they might be). If the problem is just really soft springs, then a swaybar setup with long drop arms would be the ticket.

    The panhard bar will probably help with deathwobble too, if that's an issue for you.

    Pics!

    I may have to send them to you to post. My dial-up won't seem to let me post up here :mad: . I have custom front hangers as well.
