We build four bars with compressed rubber rod ends and can even build bars to any length you want. Compressed rubber bushings are the only way to go in a vehicle tat is going to see alot of street time.

Sway bars are for road cars, and 4 link for drag cars. It is a conflict of interest so to speak.
That's what I thought until I saw 4-links coming out for trucks with airbags. Tony, you'd be the man to ask this one. Is the 4-Link on trucks with bags mainly just to get them low, or does it suit some other purpose too?

The problem with this IMHO, is that you loose the rigidity and tunability on the strip that the 4 link offers. While it will work, it is not optimal. But, we cant have our pie and eat it too, huh.
