Swaybars on IFS

After reading the postings on the Fender Trimming, I remembered hearing about a swaybar disconnect for IFS Chevys. I know there has to be some sort of swaybar on these truck, but can't exactly locate it on mine.

Question is, where exactly is the swaybar on the later model GMs with IFS? Has anybody found a company that makes a disconnect kit?

Thank you, like always.

Re: Swaybars on IFS

The swaybar on the IFS Chevys is the part that rubs on everything else after the truck is lifted[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]! Seriously, I believe that it attaches to the lower A arm on either side with an end link. It's kind of hidden, just look for a bar about 1" in diameter that runs from one side of the truck to the other, that connects to and end link that in turn connects to an a-arm. I think that Persson Off-Road makes FS Chevy IFS disconnects, the owner, Drew, is a regular in the Toyota forum here, so he should be easy to contact. After you find the swaybar, you'll see that it really wouldn't be difficult to fab your own disconnects if you can't find them anywhere.

Re: Swaybars on IFS

The swaybar on the IFS trucks runs from the lower A-arms, and mounts to the frame. It's about 1" thick. Offroad Unlimited has a upgrade for it, and I believe they also have a disconnect for it. I would imagine you could fab your own quite easily though too. I put a rear sway bar on my 94 Z71, and it handles much better, I don't go offroad all that much, just when I'm in glamis or towing the toys.
