The Dirt King lower arms come with spherical bearing antisway bar links. Although a lot of off-road people remove the sway bars because they want more articulation, we believe in running them. Our truck is too big for technical trail running and we prefer fast dirt road and desert driving to trail crawling anyway. The swaybars help handling in this sort of driving and make a huge difference on the pavement. Desert race trucks and short course trucks run sway bars and so do we.
We everything installed, we aligned the suspension to have 1.5 degrees negative camber, 3 degrees positive caster, and zero toe. The stock truck only has about one degree of caster so 3 is a big improvement.
Here is everything looking cool before we put the skid plate back on. Lots of strength and decent travel are now available.
Up top, everything looks pretty sanitary.
Our suspension is strong and functional. Not mall crawler bro dozer.
We did some extensive testing on and off-road. One of the things is all of the new large-diameter spherical bearings were very tight and made the steering feel like it was binding at first. This took a few hundred street and off-road miles to break-in. Once they broke in everything was awesome. Even though our truck has extensive suspension mods it looks pretty much stock at first glance just the way we like it!
