Default Sway away bars

Well, I have my new moog upper ball joints and lower arms. This is a redo from buying cheap shit to begin with. At least I put energy suspension bushing in already so no need for that.
My question is are the sway away bars worth it? This is a 2 wheel drive. Just sees street action. Just wanted some opinions before I drop the money. Thanks guys.

i wish i had the answer. i bought a brand new set from a member here and they are still sitting in the box in my other truck. i havent had them changed yet. i dont know which truck i want them on either. probably the extended cab since it has the frame hitch.

if i ever get them changed, i will let everyone know.

I know I've seen lots of people do them, just not sure if any are still active. Just wanted opinions if they are worth the money or should I just reuse the old ones.

I like mine. They were $165 when I got em over 3 years ago. I've got the Energy Poly bushings too along with front and rear sway bars. The truck is way more confident in turns than I feel it should be. Just street use here too. I need better shocks though. If you plan on lowering the front, the Saw Aways will help keep you off the bump stops more than stock torsion bars too. I like the stiffer suspension, but NVH typically doesn't bother me and the bars aren't extremely super stiff by any means. Hope that helps.

For a 4x4 with a t-bar crank (lift), they are the bees knees. I can't speak to the rwd, though.

My 93 had them when I bought it along with all poly bushings, it handles very well but I feel they make the truck ride too rough. Truck also came with Bilstein shocks and is 2wd.
