This is interesting, how much better does the car handle? Better at cornering?

Through a friend/business partner I am getting a set of Eibach sway bars to "test", I will report once they get here. :)

I have this setup and I noticed a considerable difference as well. almost no sway, and that rocking motion has almost completely disappeared. I would recommend this to anyone lowered on big wheels.
I take exit ramps at the same manner and speed as I do with my girlfriend's accord cpe.(60-70mph) it truly hugs the road. It would be real hard to flip this truck now. (not saying it can't be done, but my truck has a much lower tighter feeling now.)

I have the Eibach, but a company called Helwig also makes them. Eibach are slightly thicker and red colored, Helwig are blue.

Could I put them on without lowering my truck? Is it more smooth or just the same?

Is this something that you need to lift the truck or can you just crawl under the truck and swap the old ones out?

I was interested in this swaybar thing so I thought I would do a little research. I ask are they really necessary ??? I find Mr. Lucky seems not to have much body roll on turns. I thought someone else might be interested in this site I found.
auto.howstuffworks.com/question432.htm Its a good site for a lot of ???'s.
Peace :)

All the racing sway bars, and even my stock Z06 sway bars were hollow, one reason is weight savings, the second it they use a better alloy steel and that allows the bars to flex more for better tire to ground contact.

its possible for a hollow pipe to be stronger than a solid piece of steel. when the pipe is round the way the stress is distributed is more even
