Correct Hellwig numbers are 7008 Front and 7180 Rear. Ordered both from SDTruckSprings, a suspension specialist in Long Island NY. They didn't have a shipping special but with a 15% off sale they came in less than $19.95 or free shipping on other sites. Now to wait for the goodies and do a project.

I put a Hellwig rear bar on my little Silverado-based C about 3 1/2 years ago. I don't recall the price or who I ended up ordering from. No serious complaints, but I wasn't at all impressed with the quality of the hardware or instructions. The black paint finish is kinda cheesy-looking, but it hasn't rusted. Certainly no complaints about function.

Jim, "Mo' coffee!"

Looking to add front and rear sway bars. From Roadmaster's advertising, they have Larger Diameter, Better Steel, and Better Bushings. Than Who? Clearly OEM where Ford's Front is 1", Rear is 1-1/8" and Bushings are Rubber. RM's are 1-3/8" Front, 1-1/2" Rear, 4140 Steel and Poly bushings. I looked up Hellwig expecting the specs to be lesser in size, steel, or bushings. All three matched RM's specs. So it seems to me that the only difference between RM and Hellwig is Color and Price. Am I missing something?
Who's shopped these parts? So far I've found best prices on Hellwig at suspensionconnection and RM at expressrv.
I'm also having problems IDing the correct Rear Hellwig Part Number for 2002 E450...
So Engineers, Economists, Techs, please help me out here! THANKS!
