Is your sway bar still connected? It kinda looks like it. Other than that, I would suggest retorquing the leaf bolts to 40-45 ft/lbs.

I agree it does look like the front sway bar is connected. If it is unbolt it and you will see a HUGE improvement in flex. If it is disconnected pull your shackle bushings and grease everything and re-torque the bolts with some good nylock nuts to 45 ft/lbs.

Pull off the sway bar connectors and see if that helps. I guarantee it will. It'll probably take 20 minutes or so, and it'll drive a lot better than you think...

i know i did it for a while but my dad *****ed at me to put them on i guess it might be a little smoother but for some reason i was still getting no travel in front is it possible that with the springs they put in front are to crappy to do it??? my rims and tires way over 100lbs each so i would think they can pull any suspension down very far to flex

i had a axle wrap one time and i didnt know much about it and the mechanic convinced my dad to let him do it with my money how nice of him charged me 300 for the springs and they gave me the truck and the front was stuck height and i found out they just put a add a leaf thing in there instead of putting new ones in NEVEr let mechanics touch ur truck accept inspection and like rebuilds like motor and stuff
