Default 01 Ram 2500 General sway bar question.

When I purchased the truck the sway bar was removed due to the factory links not being lone enough after the lift. The truck currently has a 5.5" fabtech lift, 2" coils spacers and 3" body lift (not that that matters). What is the best way or option to complete the sway bar setup?

Also this is dodge specific not general. Can anyone tell me what size the factory sway bar bracket bolts were so I can order new. I have the sway bar and brackets but no bolts.

On some Dodge lifts I do, instead of using spacers and such, I take the bar off and flip it side for side. The ends will now drop to the stock links instead of climbing up and coming nowhere near the links. A trick I got from one of the lift company's I deal with.

And that won't hit anything or obstruct the steering?

What about bolt size?

The bar blocks nothing, just flip it and put it in, legs down. It will be obvious.

As for bolt size, 10mm rings a bell, pitch I'm guessing is 1.5. Would have to dig to know for sure.

EDIT: From the digging I did, it is 10 x 1.5mm then the length.
