Hodgee I'm assuming the 4th gen sway bars from Addco are made the same way as the 3rd gen and if that's the case then the Addco ones are solid. I will hopefully be getting the front one on tomorrow and then the rear one on soon after that

And these?

I can't decide on a rear size, don't want to much oversteer?
Also I can't seem to find upgraded links for the front?

My main problem is when im going fast enough on the freeway and I want to change lanes and I get body roll. Sway bars will help fix this problem?

Yes it will help with it to a point.
Other things you can do, lower the truck, and stiffer control arm bushings will also help you out a bunch.

Awesome thanks, I'll look into getting stiffer bushings then since I don't want to lower. Im on 35s haha.

Looks like there is F&R:

Front is 7708
Rear is 7709

Interestingly, rear doesn't come with drop links, so if you need drop links too, you'll need Hellwig 7961.

To be honest tho, I'm curious if going with the Bwoody Drop links and Hellwig sway would be the best solution... Hmmmm...

Bwoody rear links and Roadmaster 1-1/8" rear bar(http://www.roadmasterinc.com/pdfinst/1129-135.pdf) for me.

Does anyone know where to get Upgraded or Heavy Duty front stabilizer/sway bar end links for 2012 Express 2wd, or at least one with poly bushings?

I have searched extensively and the only options seem to be direct oem replacements from moog and off brands? Sphon and maxxlinks make gorgeous ones for 2500's but not 1500's?

So far all I could come up with is to replace the oem upper link bushings by using sizing chart at energysuspension and the same for the oem front stabilizer bar bushings?

It seem to be a vertical ball or inline ball or swivel joint, doesn't look strong at all. Does anyone know if static mounting to the original location with oversized bushings and greaseable bar bushings would work? Many companies have hardened and oversized links without the swivel joint! All you engineers out there please help? There may be to much live action on the control arm for this to work and if so is the factory sway bar even effective? Has anyone taken there's off?

Spoke with engineer at Hellwig. They do NOT make any front anti sway bars for the Ram 1500 form 2012 forward.

They only make a REAR anti sway bar for 2x4 or 4x4. It is part number 7709.
Engineer could not explain why they don't produce a front anti sway bar.
