Thanks, I'm new to diesels,4wd and solid front axles. The sway bar does come in contact with the coils when I hit a bump, I'm just trying to figure out if I can run 37s on this truck, I'm pretty sure it has a 6" lift, but the steering looks stock
Yeah those are superlift and they moved your axle forward therefore causing the contact on sway bar end.
1. you can make a custom bracket to move the sway bar forward a little.
2. get a custom made sway bar where the distance from the 90* bend is shorter then what it is now. I got a carli sway bar and made it shorter by an inch .
3. or remove it completely.
I dont know if removing the sway bar is a good Idea on these trucks. I did it on my lifted 95 1/2 ton but these things are way heavier. It looks like the contact is minimal. I wonder if you could slot the holes on the sway bar frame bracket to move it forward just a hair. Looks like you wont need more than 1/4 inch
i have taken mine off, but i dont have a lift. i like the way the truck feels myself. i have read that people dont encourage it when you are lifted. if you do a search, there are plenty of threads on it.

I know a few guys running no sway bar. But they are not lifted hi and have some bad arse shock to help the sway out. I had it off only because i had the same situation as you when i installed the long arms. But , like i said. i fix it w/ a carli sway bar (that i had to modify) . Im sure if you told carli to make it for u . they would . same w/ thuren. but im 1st in line with thuren. just saying lol
You could spin the coil spring around so that the sway bar doesn't constantly touch the coil. My 05's sway bar contacted the coil when I lifted it 6", and spinning the coil kept the bar end off the coil. The contact was very little and seldom, so I just kept an eye on it--never seemed to wear.
