Hey everyone, i have an 89 K5 with a 2 in lift and 33 in MTR's, and whenever
i turn it wants to lean out the opposite way i'm turning (if that makes
sense) I have an 83 1/2 ton 4x4 and it doesn't do it as bad, i figure it's
the extra weight on the Blazer, but my questions is do they make anything
that you can mount on the axles/crossmembers that might help stabilize it?
It's not awful, I'd just rather it not be as bad since I use it to haul my
Any help would be appreciated,
Is your front swaybar installed? My K5 doesn't hardly body roll at all
on corners. All K5's came equipped from the factory with front
swaybars. If it's installed and there, check the swaybar bushings. While
your at it, how your spring bushings?
They make rear swaybar kits as well, I think some suburbans also had
factory rear sway bars as an option, the 1/2 model version should fit
Spring bushing are polyurethane and they're good, the lift's only about 5
years old. It has a front sway bar; the shocks aren't new i don't think (i
bought the truck back in 98) well, i didn't install them is what i mean.
Any shocks you'd recommend? those rear sway bars, you know if you can find
them aftermarket or do i need to do some junkyard hunting?
Sway Bar. As 73Blazer pointed out.
Polyurethane End Link bushings work real well, but you might have worn center
You might also want to check with the lift manufacturer for the proper bars and
