so i did the install friday night. it took longer than i thought it would(thats what she said), it was harder than i thought it would be(thats what she said). i did open a beer half way through too. the result you ask! the truck handles way better, way less body roll and the wandering feeling is gone and stearing is soo tight. the stearing kit was $18 and sway bar kit was $9. paid nothing for install (thanks to me) money well spent and i'd recomend this over and over.
