srt8 rear sway bar on 5.7
 
I noticed a lot of people have swapped out the sway bars, and i was looking to do the same on my 5.7 limited with the srt8 bars. Can you really feel a difference? how significant? Is it just a straight swap?
Thanks

I definitely noticed a difference at the time. The installation was pretty easy.

remove the old one, replace with new one.











j/k troy.

but its almost that easy. you have to disconnect the bar ends from the links. you need 2 wrenches for that. 8mm to hold the end of the link and 18mm for the nut. that gets both ends disconnected. then there are 2 center bar mounts with rubber bushings. new onescome in the kit you just reuse the bolts. i think those were 3/4 but dont hold me to that. the center bolts torque to 35 the ends to 85. thats it.

The rear srt sway bar is my next project once I get this srt exhaust on. From all I hear im looking forward to seeing what a difference it makes, just putting srt lowering springs in had an amazing effect on cornering and feel of the road. J4J has them for a good price, and I think we get a discount from here right?

I have bilstein's all around and the SRT rear sway - ride is improved 10 fold over stock. You won't regret it.

I think the stock is great for people that take it off road once in awhile. I recently went camping with these srt lowering springs and it absolutely blew, had to go 5 mph and I was being bounced around nevermind the girl in my passenger seat. I actually scraped my side sills twice on rocks that time too, but I was trying to follow a Ford F350 with a 4" lift on it. I realize you cant have it both ways, so no more off road for me.
