Helwig swaybar?

Has anyone used a Helwig sway bar? My van is 4x4 and the thing hangs down WAY too far for anyone who's going offroad no? What other options are there for front and rear sway bars on these vans? My van is an 07 Quigley. I have heard of using a Ford Expedition front sway bar but don't know where to find the thread and have used the search function. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

i have an 06 Quigly. Once you get decent valved shocks, you won't need the rear. I pulled my helwig rear off once I got shocks from Agile, haven't missed it.

I have a Helwig sway bar, but it is on the rear suspension. It was the final touch to making the truck handle the way I wanted at highway speeds.

If anyone has a rear Helwig swaybar that they aren't using, and you want to sell it, please PM me. I'm on the East Coast and most likely will need it shipped (it's easy to ship a sway bar, you just wrap it in plastic and stick a label on it).

I didn't go with the rear sway when Boulder Offroad was installing the new front sway and reworked a few other things. It just hung down too far for me for our use. The Deaver springs and fox shocks do a nice job of keeping things under control and the larger front sway with end links worked wonders to keep the front under control. Granted we've got an RB, the rear sway might be more beneficial on an EB depending on load. If you do any offroading, I would do rear spring packs, spacers, good shocks (Fox or Bilstein) and do the upgraded front sway.

I installed mine after adding the roof rack and solar panels, followed with new bushing on the front sway bar (DSL) and rear deavers. World of difference, even with a kayak on the roof I get minimal axial movement . But I don't have Fox customs thats my next step, for $300 you can't go wrong.
