    As some of you make know I recently spun out in the rain and did some damage to my truck anyways the first thing that I want to fix now that I got it back home is the Broken sway bar it snapped clean and is hanging down from under the truck right now.

    1 How safe is it to drive right now? it seemed ok the mile and a half or so to and from the shop.

    2 where can I get one? I could only find bushing and parts online not the whole Bar and assembly also I heard somewhere that a better aftermarket one will improve my handling?

    Thanks Ben.

    My truck is a 96, 4x4,V6 extra cab.

    Remove it and keep it off. As long as your not racing into corners youll be fine. It will ride better to.
