    Hellwig rear sway purchase

    Thinking of adding a rear sway bar to the mix. I have a equilizer wdh and timbrens but I still get some wind and semi push/pull action that I want to reduce or hopefully stop.

    Would the hellwig be the advisable next purchase or would Bilsteins be more recommended?

    Thanks!

    The Hellwig will help immensely. I swear by mine along with E rated trailer & truck tires, and a set of Ultimate Loadlifter 5000's.

    Thanks! That's what I was hoping to hear! This aluminum body I guess is to blame for the push/pull.

    IMO, the laws of physics are mostly to blame for the push/pull. The push/pull will always be there...all we can do is to attempt to minimize the effects.

    Gotcha! My older Chevy was pretty good at almost eliminating it so thought maybe the lighter body had something to do with it.

    That Chevy did well only in at aspect. Once I hit a hill, I felt bad for the folks behind me. Slow going! Not anymore though!

    I believe with the sway bar, you will have limited travel if you add air bags since they will be fighting each other. I see you have the Timbrens, so I don't think this is an issues for you. Something to keep in mind however should you decide to switch later.

    I'd say call Timbren and ask about the Hellwig being installed before purchasing, just to make sure.

    The sway bar does not limit travel... it limits articulation.
    The purpose of an anti-sway bar is to keep the truck from wallowing side to side (keeps suspension flatter).
