I have 2021 KR 4x4 and drive it fairly aggressively and have not had the urge for add on's yet. Wondering what air pressure those with problems have it the tires.

I will say that that the ride feels a bit more acceptable in my '20 Stealth after going to a proper truck tire. I've also ordered the rear sway bar and sumo coil helpers however.

I put the Hellwig rear sway bar on my '20 XLT MAX FX4 just before Christmas. Huge improvement on pavement. I haven't taken it off road yet. I'm anticipating a slight; but, hopefully acceptable, degradation in articulation there. I'll drive it a while this way and decide if I want to upgrade the front as well. My wife didn't like driving the truck before because of the citreon 2CV feeling in curves. Now she loves it. Happy wife, happy life, new bar was worth every penny.

If you think the rear bar helped its handling, the front bar helped 3X as much in the handling and cornering. The rear bar stopped the rear sway that almost made you puke. The front makes it corner like a go-cart in comparison. Well worth it! :)

Deadman, I re-tightened the front Helwig but then ended up taking it my off because I was getting a clunk. Factory front sway is silent so it tells me the bushings are shot. I am working with Helwig. Have you experienced this?

2-3 folks on the FB groups also complain of the same issue.

I don't put a lot of miles on mine, so Its probably not real fair. I don't drive it much if at all in the road salt! lol
Its always been silent, except maybe a tiny squeak if you had the windows down at slow speed.

I haven’t complained yet, but I am getting the same clunk. I think part of it could be the oversized holes in the bracket for the bushings. They are way to big for the stud size. E98FE135-BE23-4A4C-A574-F502DC698FE1.jpeg2F429B4E-3164-40A0-B765-A050136AF83B.jpeg

I have both of my sway bars for sale, new in the box. With new Moog end links for front and rear. I traded in my Expedition.
