ALRIGHT!!!! It's in. Friend of mine let me put the nose of the truck inside his garage. The wind was brutal today so I wasn't going to do it. Anyway it's in. I recommend anyone who does a track bar to use a ratchet strap to hold the body and axle together. Makes it easy to adjust if needed. I had installed the oem bar with lots of anti sieze!!! Best thing ever that shit.
Anyway I was prepared to basically say I couldn't tell the difference and whatever but I was more surprised by not what I noticed but what I didn't notice.
Since I've had the stock pw bar in place and prior with the Carli I would notice the steering kick round essentially like having big tires and a stock steering stab. But I have the hydro setup. But I really wasnt thinking much of it before as it wasn't much. With the stock bar in it was more noticeable. And one train track crossing had given me a wobble. Didn't like that.
So driving home today the truck finally felt like the wheels weren't kicking the steering around anymore!!! As it shouldn't!!! So yes I understand how people say it tightens the front end. There is no loss of ride comfort with no rubber bushing. If anything I would swear it's riding smoother.
I highly recommend doing a custom track bar joint setup with these emf units for anyone looking to either renew or upgrade their already upgraded track bar.
All I'm saying is wow. Super happy. Super super happy.
Also in the last pic you can see I did the most awesome upgrade that I know nobody else had done!! See if you can find it. GL
