Sway Bar

I got a 6" roughcountry suspension lift for me 73 and want to know if my sway bar will still work or what do I need?

<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>Even the softest 6" springs are stiff enough that the swaybar is pretty useless. I ran one for awhile with my Superlift Softride 6" lift but took it off just to see what it would be like. It rode and flexed 10x better and had no noticable difference in cornering ability. Just leave it off, you aren't missing anything. If you really want to run it then you need to put a spacer between the frame and the swaybar, the ones that you can buy are 2", but I really feel that you need more than that so the sway bar doesn't fight the suspension. I'd go for at least a 4" drop, just get some steel stock and drill it out to fit between the frame and the swaybar mounts, that's all the drop kit for them is anyways.
