Front Sway Bar - Articulation Question ?
Guys, I've tried searching for my specific question, didn't seem to find any solid answer. I'm on the Radflo coilovers, 600 lb springs, SPC UCA, basically the PRG Advanced kit which gives me about 2.5" lift. Rear has Deaver AALs, Bilsteins. Stock front bumper. My question is related to crawling downhills with moderate articulation. My front swaybar is still on, and I've read that with it off I can get about 2" more 'stuff' into the wheel wells, i.e. better articulation. So, with the bar off going into a good sized dip, let's say passenger front, will the truck drop into it much softer and give more tendency to tip? Or, with the better articulation the pass front wheel will drop more and stop the tip?
I haven't compared, but hoping the bar off would be best since I'm on those 600 lb springs, i.e. won't be too tippy vs stock. With my Hefty alum front coming soon, I may upgrade to 650 lbs. Thoughts??
