Recommended Hellwig Rear Anti-Sway Bar For A 1998 Chevy K2500  


which hellwig anti-sway bar is going to fit a 1998 K2500 CP6 8600GVW option aka staggered shocks one shock forward of axle, one shock rear facing axle and 5K Air Lift Airbag installation? Have a 2500Lb Truck camper installation and in/out of drive ways and gutters produce significant sway - rock and roll. Not to mention any off road ruts and ditches. Tried the Roadmaster after they recommended an application but it did not fit the staggered shock application. Do not want to go through another try it, fail and ship it back and have that expense again. Can you ensure the Hellwig fits the staggered shock and airbag installation application?


Helpful Expert Reply:

Hellwig lists the Hellwig Rear Anti-Sway Bar # HE36MR as the correct fit for a 1998 Chevy K2500. As for fitment with the staggered shocks, you shouldn't have any issues and can even see this setup in the attached installation picture below.

The only other issue would be fitment with your air springs. The bar is going to sit just behind the axle mount so it's really going to come down to just how far the bottom mounting bracket of your air spring sticks out. Based on the compatible Air Lift options available for your K2500 the bracket shouldn't overhang the mount and you should be good to go.
