question about greyhawk sway bars

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone has used any devices for a greyhawk to help with the rig from swaying, especially bothersome when a semi passes by and having high winds. Any tips would be appreciated!! Thanks,,,

The sway bars that come on these rigs are junk. Replace them with some Hellwig or equivalent sway bars and this alone will fix most of your sway problems. I did this on my Redhawk and the difference is night and day. It cost me $500 for both and were easy to install. If your Grayhawk is new replacing the shocks won't make that big a difference.

My GReyhawk came with Bistein shocks, Hellwig springs, swaybar and steering stabilizer shocks. I understand they are not standard issue on all Greyhawks. I wont say a semi does nudge me when passing, but the ride is very controlled.

If you don't have enough weight on the front axle you will also get excessive sway.

Okay, Grumpy, I hear what you're saying. I'll try and fatten her up a little bit.

To the OP - the components TX_Arvee is describing is the JRide package. Did your Greyhawk come equipped with that?

Hellwig makes a retrofit kit with sway bars, overload springs and air bags for the Greyhawk if your rig didn't come with the J-Ride package. The J-Ride package includes, BILSTEIN shocks, MorRide isolation dampeners, Hellwig overload springs, Hellwig rear sway bar.

I plan on adding a front Hellwig sway bar.
