    Sway bars for 2nd gen Blazer?

    Does anyone have aftermarket sway bars on their 2nd gen Blazer? Is it worth it to replace the factory bars? I'm going to be doing a 2/3 drop in the near future and I am considering this while I'm at it. I know Belltech makes a set for the 1st gens, but I'm guessing the probably don't match up. Any other brands I should be looking at?

    Thanks!

    A swaybar minimizes body lean by stiffening the car's chassis against the longitudinal force known as body roll.

    When you cut the wheel hard the body will roll to the side opposite the turn. But when you install sway bar's... the body won't roll as hard.. bigger bars = less roll.


    Good for cornering ability etc...

    I've checked out Belltech's site, and they have sway bars listed for the 82-94 Blazers. Will these bolt up for the late model Blazer ('01 specifically)? It looks like the S10 p/u uses the same bars for 82-03...

    Anyone know for sure?
    Thanks

    Why don't you get a sway bar from a ZQ8 s10 or something. They're super thick and stiff. It should be a direct bolt on

    The stock front and rear swaybars on my '01 2dr Blazer are the exact same size as the ZQ8 swaybars.
