That looks like quite a nice and detailed article. One thing is that the sway bar mount locations need to be much further outboard and the end link mounts and sway bar mounts need to be aligned and welded/gusseted to work properly and have decent wear/stress durability.

"Most of us Mopar maniacs know how a sway bar can help reduce body roll for added tire grip to make your car a better corner carver. After installing the G-Max front sway bar, a testdrive certainly verified improved handling."

I have a slight issue with the above statement, in that most "maniacs" have little real understanding what a sway bar really does, and how that effects actual grip, a related hint, "handling" is mainly a perception subjective quality.

Anybody who has use KYB shocks for 15"years and not see a huge improvement with installing Billsteins would have to be in a coma.

Article seems to be a partial fact based product advertisement endorsement..

This is true for about 99.9% of magazine "how to" articles.

I installed heavier T-bars, the Borgeson steering box, FirmFeel sector support/bearing, gusseted my K-frame. I use KYB shocks and stock strut rods and sway bar. The difference in handling is amazing. Not sure you need the aftermarket strut rods for amazing feel, but I've never tried them. I read a few stories on those having issues, but I'm sorry I don't recall where I read that. Yes, it's a slant six in there too.
