I'm guessing if you sell your perfectly good smartbar it more than covers the cost of Thurens swaybar and any other required parts. Did you ziptie the smartbar parts up under there or how did you clear any electronics issues?

I'm going to keep the smart bar for a while. I'll take some pictures of the module next weekend.

The module is clamped to the lower radiator support. I bagged the open end. The pushrod is depressed with electrical tape. I can have the entire module out in five minutes so if I need to change anything it's easy. No permanent mods either.

Don revalved the Kings. I'm not sure if what he did lines up with the Stage scheme he uses but the added low and mid compression valving sorted out the lazy feeling the truck had. With Stage 2 Hemi valving and his swaybar, the front would dive in off camber turns and wallow. The small bump compliance at low speed was awesome but the compromise was not worth it. The stiffer valving is still better than stock at low speed and much better at high speed; at 80mph the truck feels more sharp. If you're considering an aftermarket swaybar go up one stage in the front, if you have a truck cap go up one stage in the rear.

If you can get a DetMan skid you won't be sorry if you do. No one else is doing this.
