    Try running without the sway bar. 12" springs are very stiff, you probably won't need it.

    Mudzilla has a 12" Superlift + 6" brackets on the frame to lower the springs. We threw the sway bar away /forums/images/icons/grin.gif.

    12" ers are like riding in a dump truck with a full load so have fun !! I have been doing it in the Burb for over 4 years now. I run the 3" block to drop mine and it hooks up just fine. The springs are stiff but 12" 's is a long way up there too !!
