    So here it goes. I'm building a 77 K20.I have bought just about everything Made by ORD for the suspension.Now here's my problem , At first i didn't know if i would be able to afford crossover/hy steer (d44) but today i got a free flat top knuckle (already drilled and tapped ) and 2wd box. So now i got sway bar disconnects,and bushings sitting on my work bench for a sway bar i don't use with crossover/hy steer. Would i be able to return sway bar components for credit towards crossover. These parts are expensive so i don't want to waste my hard earned money. Can someone give me an honest opinion as to how my truck will handle on the street/highway?

    What suspension products did you install? If they are ORD I imagine a shackle flip and a set of TC springs. Ditch the swaybar and don't look back. I have run no swaybar on both 2.5" and 4" front springs and had no problems. The 2.5's were a little soft and had a little more body roll them most people like but I didn't see a problem with it. The 4" springs are just fine with no swaybar.

    See if you can return the Disconnects, and if you can't sell them on here. Someone always wants those on here. You may loose a few dollars but that is better then having them as paper weights.

    Crossover is way more important then the disconnects.

    With 6" springs the swaybar disconnects were a waste of time to begin with. Return them or sell them. You don't need them with 4" springs let alone 6" springs.

    Crossover on a 44 is ok but I think high steer is a bit much to ask of Dana 44 knuckles.

    Just my two pennies :D
