MrsMonte must like you. I'm jealous of your Hellwig sway bars. I have done the Belltech 2/3 drop on my Suburban about a year ago and I have been trying to find the rear Hellwig sway bar but everybody has it on back order. Every time I order one the order gets canceled.

I know, I called them in November and they told me that the Hellwig 7740 is on back order and they will drop ship it once it is available from Hellwig. I found few on eBay earlier this week and took a chance at ordering it and it came in on Friday. I just have to order the front one now and wait for a weather break in the land of rust and corruption.

I have already put 5,000 miles on my lowered + Hellwig swaybar setup and still loving the transformation. No rubbing/noise from the swaybars so far.

Here are some pics after I adjusted the supplied endlinks to the rear Hellwig swaybar. I ended up removing the lock nut and making the rear links as short as possible and the rear swaybar is close enough to being parallel to the ground for me. I did spray some WD40 on the endlinks to make the adjustment of those long treads go easier + I just hit the 80K mile mark on my Yukon underside is well passed due for a detailing.

Looks like you also adjusted the sway bar. How does the new position feel compared to when you had it in the middle?

I am curious about the difference, since I am in the middle and have yet to adjust to the stiffer setting for a roadtest. I think if I do that, I will also need to air up my tires too.

I had no complains with the middle position but the inner position has a better feel to it. It's still so impressive how well the Yukon handles now and I drive on curvey backroads often.

I adjusted my rear ride height sensors which dropped the rear 3/4" which make the ride even better. Now from fender to ground I'm Front 34", Rear 35 1/4"
