    I'm about to install a 6 in suspension lift and I was wondering what to do with the front sway bar... with a 6 in lift I'll have to remove it right?

    What will it do to the truck... will it be mutch harder to drive? Can i do someting to be able to keep it on besides going for a lower lift?

    EDIT: I'm driving a 86 blazer with 10-bolt in the front.

    Your adding a 6" lift spring which has a higher arch and a higher spring rate then your stock springs. Don't worry about it. Through that heavy piece of crap in the trash and forget about it.

    pull it, be carefull when you first drive it and take corners... change your cornering speed accordingly. Depending on how stiff you front springs are, you may not notice any difference at all...

    just make sure you ALWAYS have good shocks on it with the bar off. One bad shock and it's gonna feel very tipsy...
