Re: adding a Sway Bar on ford 8.8 ?
I don't have an expert opinion. With the resources we have, I can't think of any way to accurately predict its absolute behavior after the lift, although there's no doubt about the effects of a rear bar.
When I restored my CJ I left the front bar off. Front bars increase understeer. I never push it hard enough that handling dynamics come into play, so I can't tell the difference.
I suspect that if you drive your lifted Jeep the way you should drive a lifted Jeep, you won't miss the rear bar, or a front one for that matter. But we don't want you to die either - keep bringing Kelly around [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
