    Well i busted the weld on the passenger side A-arm sway bar mount last year. Tonight I noticed the tell tale clicking again. The Driverside weld gave way this time:mad:


    How bad would it handle if I just ditched the sway bar and put some stiffer shocks in?

    think this had anything to do with it? :doah:

    The sway bar on my 97 K1500 has been disconnected for about 5 years, and I can't tell the difference. It has a 4" suspension lift w/ 33's, and I lost the spacer links that come with the kit. One side fell off, got another, then the other side came off.... finally I said to hell with 'em and let 'em be. Like I said, I can't tell any difference. I need to climb under there and remove the whole sway bar all together. :o

    With stock spring rates I think you'll notice the swaybar when it's missing. Can try it by just removing one link and see how things behave.
