    Well, went ahead and dropped it. Seems to help. Had to drill a few hols in the channel, but otherwise it was pretty easy.

    Do you have any pictures or specifications for the drop? I was wanting to do the same.

    I dropped my sway bar...on the floor. It drives fine without. I do notice a bit more roll through those high speed turns though.

    heheh. High speed turns...in my truck?...yeah right.

    yeah just get rid of it. what springs do you have? my pro comps are stiff enough that i don't hardly need it. my suburban rides twice as soft as it used to.

    I agree, I took my swaybar off a week ago and I don't miss it all. It's pretty easy to take off so try it out before spending your time and money on drop brackets.
