Re: rear sway bar with lift

You shouldn't need anything. The rear swaybars have enough movement to leave them as is. At least with the 8.8's. I assume you have an 80 which means you have the 9". Its probably the same but I'm not positive.

Re: rear sway bar with lift

I tow a 19 foot boat, about 3500 lbs, with 6 inch lift no sway bar. I notice little difference with my 84 bronc, 4 inch lift, when I removed sway bar. I noticed a big difference in wheel travel and quit hanging the thing-up when wheeling Too.

Re: rear sway bar with lift

I agree 80B, see my other post regarding my rear lift. Between that and good rancho 9000's, which can be adjusted to full stiff, unless you are really towing a heavy load, you just won't need it.

Re: rear sway bar with lift

rear sway bar will fit with a lift 80-96... had a 4" rancho on my 81' then a 6" superlift on my 93 now... both had rear swaybars. Now I could tell a big difference without the front swaybar in the wind so put the drop down brackets on the front one and kept it on the 93'. Just seems to handle better now and alot better in the wind etc... just need to get disconnects [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: rear sway bar with lift

If you really want to keep it there should be a hold approxmately 4" lower on the frame. Just need to drill the hole bigger. I did that and then realized sway bars are completely worthless, so now it resides in the backyard.
