    I am getting an addco front bar because mine broke and was wounding if you guys think its worth the extra 135$ to get a rear one while I'm at it? It would be great to hear from people who have them, How much of a difference does it make on the back?

    Why the hell do you want a sway bar? They are like condoms... it's good to have them, but feels WAY better without it. :D

    A rear sway bar will significantly reduce any body roll when turning, but it will also limit off road articulation.

    I used to have the Addco rear when I first got my truck & it was stock. It did make a noticeable difference. But when I found CT & decided to lift my truck, off it came.

    If you lift or already are I wouldn't recommend getting it. If you plan on getting bigger (wider) tires without smaller BS wheels, the bar will rub on your tires. If you have a leaf pack, not sure if it would still fit.

    I got mine for cheap & sold it cheap, for what it is I would never have paid for the price it is new.
