I installed both front and rear on Friday afternoon. Front was installed in about 45min start to finish using only hand tools, including taking pics. Took out for test drive and notice quite an improvement. Brought back and installed rear. Used impact for that job and made for a lot easier install. The crossbar bolts were a little stubborn, but all came loose with impact (big impact though!). What a difference that made! No more push steer from semis and the rocking is all but gone. Felt much more glued to the road.

After looking at your pictures some more, my rear sway is quite a bit different than yours. I had to undo the U-bolts and bolt a 1/2" plate to the bottom of axle brackets. Then the sway bar brackets bolted to it. Must be the difference in frame weights. I thought of adding Sumos in front, but I wasn't convinced they were the solution I was looking for. Let us know your thoughts after install.

Mine is a 20500 lb chassis..not a difficult install. I am hoping the front Sumos will stabilize my rig sufficiently.

I installed the front and rear Roadmaster sway bars. The front replaces the stock sway bar and the rear is an auxiliary sway bar.
