I love your wheel choice. They are exactly what I was looking for. As luck would have it, they don't make them in 20" for our bolt pattern. When I wear out my stock 20" tires I will get some in 22" along with Toyo Proxis tires.

Got Proxies and love them, ride perfectly smooth, ride perfectly quite, stick like hell and after 7000 miles, they looke like the tread is still brand new. Pretty good in the rain also.

What size tires are you running on those muscle car rims?

That swagger you feel is not really from the bracket, that little off of angle wouldn't make that much difference, what you are feeling is no rear swaybar. Get the Hellwig set for the truck, and huge improvement of turn in and balance. Will completely get rid of the rear end swaying you feel now. Express trucks don't come with rear swaybars, can you believe it. The hellwigs will come with everything you need, the brackets are already installed on the truck, and your BT kit came with the shorter endlinks for the swaybar. You will need a couple of nuts and bolts from the hardware store, 4 for the swaybar mount, and two longer ones for the upper endlinks.

I had crazy swagger and odd bouncing from the rear end under sharper corners like on the freeway or at speed. The rear swaybar totally killed this, just if you get the rear, do yourself a favor and get the front bar and save time, cause after you get the rear, you will notice how lacking the front swaybar is!

Anyone interested in a Hellwig sway bar let me know which one you are looking for and I will see if we can get it out to you at a very competitive price

Thanks

I am running 285/45/22 nexen roadian hp's. And its not body roll from no sway bar i am feeling, i had no left to right sway before the lowering kit was installed. The axle is pushed to the passenger side a good 1/2-3/4 if an inch. Its very noticeable. I have the bracket now, but the rain today is putting that off untill sometime later this week. Hopefully itll line everything back up, some have had no luck. I might just drilla new hole.

Nice sweet, oh and by the way, I forgot, I got the adjustable Spohn panhand rod at the same time I did the BT kit. My truck was .5"s off to the driver side before I replaced the panhand rod, and with the rear axle being out of alignment, especially as much as yours was, you would probably definately feel out of alignment running odd angles on the suspension.

Thanks for the info on the rims, I saw them listed for our trucks, and was thinking of getting a set, but I wanted to stay 20", and I think you said the smallest they make for our trucks was 22" correct? So you are running a 32" tires then. They look pretty good, and 1"shorter than stock. Your speedo will be off by 1.2mph at 60 according to the wheel diameter calculator.
