The Hellwig sway bar almost eliminates the body roll you're describing. The sway bar is designed to help in cornering... going straight there should not be any forces to the left or right of your truck...
Here's a link for ya - http://www.suspensionconnection.com/...sway_bars.html

You want part #7651. You might also try other sites (Summit Racing, for example)... they might be a little cheaper. Also try to find a site that has free shipping - this puppy ain't light

You should already have a front sway bar (stock)... I looked at mine when I first got the truck - it looked pretty beefy.

i have a question.

has anyone replaced the bushings are their front sway with polyurethane?

i heard the poly bushings are better than the stock rubber. plus you can usually get them in like red to improve the looks under there.

Any truth to this?

I replaced the stock rubber end link bushings with the poly type on the front sway bar. It definitely made a difference. They were made by Energy Suspension. You can get them in red or black only. Sorry MrH no yellow. I stayed with the stock rubber frame bushing though. I didn't want to transmit any more road noise or harshness into the cab than needed.
