The Roush Thunderbolt sway bars have Ranger 4x4 part numbers on them, so I don't see you having any issues.

ya...it'll work with no problem what so ever. You need to make sure you get the U-plates that have the bushings in them, as your current ones will not work for the new bigger diameter bar.

I am talking NicksterSVT about getting his sway bar unless someone has a good deal on one with plates... I have never had a sway bar in the rear so yeah i would need the plates... Where could i get a set of u-plates???

I just looked at the Hellwig and it says comes with all mounting hardware, but i am still wondering if it includes new u plates... I just put the new plates from DJM on there... didn't want to remove them, but it seems i will have to now... Let me know guys...

It's a bar that ties the left and right side of the suspension together. When one side goes up the other side does as well, therefore stiffening the suspension, which minimizes body roll through turns allowing to take turns at a greater speed.
