Looking good. Maybe I missed it, but what brand of rear swaybar is that?

bigbchevy. I had to cut and rotate the backing plates to fit the shocks. but the new location is nice. less rocks bashing into them when im backing up.

the sway bar is from tk1 motorsports. or rock equipment. its a do it yourself kit. he offers alluminium arms or steel arms you can fab. he recommended the steel arms for my app. stronger than the alluminium ones. plus I was able to bend a 1" offset in them to clear my tub better.
