Do you run this in both the front and the rear "P" rated tires?
Check your tire psi rates before pumping to 44 lbs. My OEM tires were only rated to 35 psi.

Might want to check the max cold temp stamped on the side of the tires.

OK, my door says normal inflation pressure is 35 psi. But my tires say max 44 psi. So now I understand where it comes from.

Tires are: P275/65R18

Thanks.

I only have 1 sway bar on my setup below and I never have sway. It's because I've got my WDH set up correctly and my tires up to max. cold pressure so there's no sway with normal driving. I do feel it when I pass or am passed by big vehicles but that's to be somewhat expected with my setup and I never feel out of control.

That being said, I will be adding a 2nd sway bar this summer for those "just in case" situations.

Basically what I'm saying is that those sway bars are only for unexpected conditions where sudden sway could be a problem. With a properly set WDH and correctly inflated tires, there should be no sway at all in normal driving conditions.

Any thoughts on the second part of the tire pressure question? Do you max inflate both front and back, or just the back?

IF, you are running P tires, I would go max pressure of 44# front and back.

I'm giving the tire pressure a try on the way home tomorrow. Thinking about LT tires and ordered a second sway bar.

I'm using P tires with max psi. The toying was okay before with no real white knuckle moments. But I did know it was back there. When I added the 2nd sway bar is when I didn't really know i was towing. Everything stiffened up and it was very noticeable difference and it added a measure of safety in my opinion.
