13’ RAM 1500 shock and sway bar questions.

My trail rig is a 52’ Willys but my daily driver is a 13’ Ram 1500 regular cab 2wd.

My question is, my truck doesn’t have a rear sway bar and has a very hard ride, I want to mount a rear sway bar and go with better rear shocks (Bilstien’s). What rear sway bar would be recommended, would a stock bar from 4wd truck of the same year work, and would it be a bolt on mod? Or would I need a aftermarket bar with mounting kit? And would any of this soften the ride any?

Mike

No rear bar? If you want a factory one and are through the Okanagan, I have the one off my 2012 1500. I replaced it with a Hellwig and their bag system.

the rear of the coil sprung rams are pretty supple, which is why I changed to air bags for when I have my trailer attached. world of difference.

I'm still running the factory shocks without issue but a set of Falken shocks for the Ram setup are going on in a few weeks.
