Default Rear sway bar

I have a 2003 QC 2WD and I would like to put on a rear sway bar.
Any suggestions? Were there any stock ones? Do I have to go aftermarket? Thanks.

its funny you'd ask that, i just installed one on mine today. its a hellwig 7651. but none of the trucks came with one from the factory. your going to have to go aftermarket. there are more out there than hellwig. hotchkis makes one, i believe bellteck makes one and there are a few others. but so far from my experience, (just a few hours of driving) it has made a world of difference just around town.

I agree. The rear sway took a lot of the body roll when entering and exiting. Great mod.

Are the mounting bracket holes in the frame for a rear swaybar or do you have to drill and tap them yourself? I think some later models have the holes whether the truck came with one or not.

If you want one that mounts semi-factory (the hellwig points aft), then you need Addco, Belltech or Hotchkis.
