I have a 2.5" lift with 35's on mine with out sway bars. I feel that it handles great however I wouldn't take a corner extremely fast either as I can feel it lean.
Thanks for sharing your experience.
Big heavy wheels and tires have the largest negative effect on handling and braking. Look for lightweight wheels and lighter tires in a reasonable size.
I totally agree to an extent.
There is something to be said for having weight in the right places, but this is a good rule of thumb.
Sixlitre tuned his suspension many moons ago for handling. Check out his threads.
Cool, thanks for the heads up.
Sixlitre is about to get Googled!
I have driven my 6" lifted, no swaybarred, 37" tired 94 at high speeds (80mph) around decent corners and never had an issue.
Wow, that's good to hear.
For Safe Street and Handling Sway bars on/connected. For Light off-roading Sway bars on/connected deal with the rough ride or sway bars off/disconnected and enjoy the "smoother" ride. For heavy/rough off-roading Sway bars OFF/DISCONNECTED.
Great info and exactly the sort of thing I was hoping to read about in this thread.
I never considered that sway bars might be unwanted for some offroading.
Something good for me to research, thanks!
