    For what it’s worth I did the same and immediately connected everything back up after my first trip into the mountains.

    Kind of an odd feeling when you feel like you’re gonna crap your pants with a puckered a-hole.

    Yes the absorption of bumps was very nice however the body roll going up/down mountain passes at 75 mph was scary.

    Maybe in TX you don’t experience it that much (if it’s flat)

    You need the sway bar relocate from wheelers. Moves the entire sway bar an inch forward.

    In the end I kept the sway bar and bought those extensions. All working nice.

    Check out my build....the Fabtech lift has lowering and relocating brackets but it was not enough. The extensions fixed my problem. See pics above.

    The extended sway bar links move the sway bar back to the correct location and plane. So moving the sway bar down and forward 1 inch is not necessary.
