Does It's Job
Installation is strait forward, follow the instructions. To ease the installation, move the r/h shock out of the way to ease placing of the sway bar, and use a bolt fisher on the l/h upper end link bolt. Go back and recheck all torque values after a few days use. Unit works as advertised and controls body roll very well. Noticed no drop of the outside front fenders in turns after installation, which was the norm before hand.

Works as advertised
Installation is easiest if you drop the spare and the right side shock. Access to left side frame strut hanger bolt is easiest from behind the axle and using a fish wire. Roll axle clamps up and back as far as possible for clearance on larger diameter shocks like Rancho RS9000XL's. Follow the instructions and have fun. Truck handles like it's on rails, with no sway in turns. Excellent!

easy to install
Is meant to help the sway with heavy duty loads; and it does just that. It stops the sway on my vehicle even when full.

Nice handling improvement
This is my second Hellwig sway bar. First was in a 2006 F250. In my 2013, installation has been complicated by the urea reservoir. Even if you "unbolt the bracket" as suggested by the instructions, you still cannot reach to install the driver's side frame bolt. It is easier to unbolt the bed and raise it 3" so you can access the bolt hole in the frame.
