Night and day. Very limited body roll in the turns that use to make it roll pretty good. Haven't tied it with the camper yet. Should make a huge diff though.

They make a big difference. My truck has a tendency to oversteer in snowy conditions now - but I like that and I use the gas pedal to make it steer

Cheers!

Big difference. Much more pleasant to drive. Much less understeer and body roll.
Highly recommended.

Big difference.

Pricey (especially if you have to pay extra for a different end link caused by running an aftermarket exhaust), but worth it.

Where did you come up with the different end link? I have had my sway bar disconnected for the past 6 months because of my exhaust, and I'd like to get it hooked back up.

Got it from Tom (TFEnt, or whatever his screen name his). The guy that sells the sway bars.

PM him, or maybe he will see this and jump in.

I ran around for a month or two like that until he got me the different endlink.

Are you guys running front, back, both? Which one is more important and will make the biggest difference? Any change in ride? Thanks as well.

What rear sway bars for the 2500HD's w/no lift and stock exhaust are you finding to be the ones to get? Also what traction/ladder bars would you recommend for the same truck?

The sway bar from Frederico Performance is so much more expensive then others i have found made out of the same heat treated sprung metal and they even come with the better red bushings,from these pictures it looks like just the reg black rubber bushings here. Why is this??

SANDHEAD:

Our sway bar kits are bought and installed by the US Border Patrol. These are the very same kits that are sold to the public. The bushing color does not reflex manuf. or quality. Every lot of bushings we receive gets crushed in a 50,000lb press to the size of a penny. This is to insure the Polyurethane mixture of the bushing is done correctly and to our specs. It takes about 3 hours for it to form back into its original shape. If the bushing splits or turns into a powder the mix is wrong and the whole lot is returned.

We only use the highest, most durable products available. That is why our kit is the most expensive. The competition will try to duplicate our system, but it will not last on a HD Truck. We spent months R&D’n this system. Not just to make it work but to make it safe. In addition all of the hardware in the kit is covered by a lifetime warrantee.

Like night and day. 3500#s of slide-in camper on or off the difference is amazing. Front and rear Frederico sways on.

Are the new ones finished that are made to clear an aftermarket exhaust?

Anyone got pictures of this installed on a 7-9 Cognito lift?

Just purchased Tom's kit...I have no regrets. I immediately recognize the JC Whitney kit as an absolute POS, but I'll let Tom explain to you all the reasons why! :D I think in the end you will never regret the extra coin you spend on the Frederico kit.
