didnt know what forum to post it in sorry i just threw it in here.



i dont load my bikes in my T very often but i remb when i drove to fl i had a good bit of side to side sway, yes from the lift it sit high an with bout 1000lbs in the back prob. not the smartest but has to be done from time to time.cause of sway can be from other cars flying by, canyon driving, curves or going to fast i could feel it and its not a very comfortable feeling because its not something you can control when it happens.



anyhow what is the best mods/parts to change/add to prevent this?

You could stiffen your suspension with some Hellwig helper springs.. Cheap and an easy install. They also help axle wrap a little.

As you can see from my pic, I had the same problem. I am wondering if my problem is with the trailer, or possibly the suspension of the truck? I had sway bars installed and that seemed to make the problem worse.
