Front sway bar relocate kit... Needed for a lift?

I've got Icon front coilovers ready to put on but I don't have the sway bar relocate kit. I'll more than likely buy them but what's the reason for them and what would happen if I didn't use them with the truck lifted 3" with the coilovers?

Also lets say when I get my spindles.. I "lower" my coilovers back down and lift the truck with the spindles. Will I need the sway bar relocate kit then??

Try it. After a couple weeks you'll be able to see if your sway bar is bumping your springs, because the paint at the contact point will wear off and youll have (maybe) a clank over some bumps.

If so, then run the relocate.

Oh so it's not something that is NEEDED for the lift... I'll put them on anyway, since i'll have the truck apart. Do they come in different thickness's or all the same? If they are all the same... What do people do with a 6-8 inch lift?

You'll more than likely need them and i def wouldn't let them rub the shock and potentially damage anything! Or.........u could get rid of that sway bar altogether, it just gets in the way lol!

Yep.... Bought a 3" Toytec ultimate lift and the package came with the relocation clamps. You will notice like stated in posts above mine, things will be worn or... You won't be able to put the swaybar back in its original position because your coilovers will be in the way.

It occus to me that if you got 2.5" diameter coilovers, you will need the sway bar relocate kit.

All it does is provide extra space between the bar and the spring.

Is that independent flex a result of loosing the sway bar?

It allows greater flex because it allows each to work totally independent of each other, the sway bar restricts it greatly. There are some pictures that demonstrate this in action alot better then my picture...
