    I have a K5 that is pretty much stock. I think only changes are rallies with 31" tires. It has some body roll and bounce (although it has new stock shocks) that I would like to address. Nothing super bad, but I do have to fight it on rough streets. It also has original springs, front and rear. Anyone have any recommendations on how to reduce body roll?
    Thanks in advance.

    You could start with a '73+ style front sway bar...

    You'll have to fabricate hangers for the pivots, but it's not that hard. I added a bar to mine originally and liked the improvement. A set of ORD quick disconnects would allow you to still get good flex wheelin' if that's what you're after.

    Most of the 2nd Gen Blazer guys remove and toss the sway bars, so you should be able to get one for next to nothing...a good CHEAP experiment!
