Actually, come to think of it, they should make both since there was an article about a 4th gen Ram that had both installed. I'll see if I can find it

Hellwig makes a great product, if they are available. Had one on my Ford Super Duty, and so will my Ram 1500...if it ever gets built and shipped.

I am looking at the same thing. Hellwig 1 7/16 & 7/8 vs Addco 1 3/8 & 1. After looking as much as I can, it seems that anyone who buys either posts about it before and during the purchase, but rarely after...So I am still at the discovery stage of my purchase.

Well, I have the Hellwig front and rear bars on my truck now, but I will admit, I was expecting more. I got a big improvement adding to the rear, since my truck didn't have one stock, but after swapping the front, the front end improvement only felt marginal compared to stock, where it was a night and day difference in the rear, but again, no stock sway in the rear.

I did notice that the front is 5/16" thicker, and the rear is 1/8" thicker. If this will reduce roll more, even a little bit more, I would swap them, cause I want maximum cornering, regardless that this is a truck or not! I am going to call them first thing tomorrow and call Hellwig first thing and see what the spring rate is on these bars.

The Hellwigs are solid, I do not know yet if the Aadco sways are hollow or solid.

I'm thinking of going aftermarket on mine also. Where did you purchase the hellwigs from? What swayed you "no pun intended" to going with hellwig over addco, diameters? thanks

Don't overlook airbags for the rear coils. Greatly improved my cornering. I run 15 lbs in them. Bonus was it keeps the truck level with a load and they are under $100. I was looking at anti sway bars as well at first. 100% satisfied with my decision.
