    So I have a dana 44 front and six inches of suspension lift, I am wondering if I will have any geometry issues if I install a swaybar quick disconnect (ORD) AND swaybar drop blocks (2 inches)? The quick disconnects relocate the rear of the bar up 2 inches and the blocks relocate the front down 2 inches. My question is then do you think I will have any rub on the arched leaf springs in the front where the bar crosses over on the passenger side during regular road driving? I fitted it up loosely and there was only about 2 inches of clearence between the bar and spring. Do you think I should just install the quick disconnects and forget the drop blocks?

    This truck is a daily driver but sees its share of weekend abuse so I would like it to have good road manners.

    May seem petty to some but I am a chronic over-analyzer.
    Thanks for any input!
