Ok new idea. Would a good set of sway bars help out in this case? I found a set of hellwig sway bars for $400 should i even consider this or would it be a waist of time in my case?

well im working on getting a flip kit for my truck.it actually places the real leaf springs under the axel instead of on top and will come with new suspension for the front which will lower the front 4 inches and the back 6.i have 24" rims with the smallest tires possible for a truck which already gives me better grip and handling but i rode in a lowered one with a flip kit n it felt like it was on rails

Nice! So a flip kit is what you are thinking? Will the 24s rub?

I just put a Ground Force 1.5"/4.3" lowering kit on mine still running stock 20” wheels with 275/55R20 tires. Front 1.5 springs flip kit for the rear, everything you need shocks and all. Will need to get an alignment ASAP. If you’re good with a wrench you’ll have around 4 to 6 hours labor in it
Their kit for 4X4 uses Torsion bar keys on front rather than springs and the same flip kit for the rear

Do the flip kits have brackets for the back instead of having to weld on a new leaf spring mount to the axle?

Yes the kit has everything you need and it’s all bolt on. No welding or cutting. So if you want or need to go back to stock you can if you save the stock parts.
