actually, the complete opposite.
If you upgrade the front sway bar without installing a rear one, you will increase understeer. Installing a rear sway bar will increase oversteer, making it more neutral. Installing only a rear sway bar and removing the front one can make the truck slide out from under you very very easily.
You actually want more oversteer, as long as you can handle it anyway. But, too much can be dangerous.
But, all of our trucks in all years have a front sway bar. They'd be scary without one.
As far as I know, though, rear sway bars only came on 2500 HD trucks.
I got a rear sway bar for mine off of a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 HD. I would imagine it would be the same for the newer generations.
But, it did make a big difference. She stays a lot flatter in the corner's and doesn't squat as much when really putting the pedal down.
