    I removed my sway bar.* Don't have any issues on city streets or on the interstate ramps.* So i think i'll leave mine off.* Also, i didn't even like the way my truck responded without shocks so i reinstalled them.* I like the way the truck handles,* and it rides better than when it was just lowered.

    Ya I think mine got broke in. My side to side is better...

    I have a big factory sway bar on my 1978 Lincoln Continental Mark V and was worried after installing airbags that it would be too wallowy without front shocks.

    I've got a Thor Brothers shock-relo kit, but couldn't find a good spot from a clearance standpoint.

    Happy to report I air up the front 2500lb bags to around 110psi and it's a solid ride, even in bumpy Midwestern highways and roads. There's a "diving board" effect you have to worry about: MAKE SURE THE REARS ARE AIRED SOFTER THAN THE FRONTS. That way, the rear bags and shocks soak up bumps and bounces over the fronts.

    Same. On a 98 Silverado. No shocks up front. Ride front just a hair under locked up and back half way. Rides great, no bouncing.
