Re: SWAY BAR RATES????

already there. now it just needs to be widened!!


since its got airbags under it the spring rates have a differnt progression than steel springs so sway bars need to be heavier to compensate for the extra body roll. i was lookin at runnin a 1.5" front and 1.25" rear

but i think the 1.5" is overkill. on my 12" arms its a #1357 rate

Re: SWAY BAR RATES????

well i ordered up the schroeders today got a 1.5" for the front and 1.25" for the rear, worst case if its too hard ill move the 1.25" to the front and try a 1.125" in the rear. the bar itself is availible from alot of racer parts suppliers for about $125 and a set of used arms runs about $100
