Just got back from 32 mile trip through the mountains and this should have come on this truck from the factory. She stays flat through the turns like a sports car.

One of the best buys yet. We came throug the mountains with aluminum dock walkways this weekend and passed everyone. Had this truck 6 months 15000 miles.

Just installed one on my truck will give results latter.
Had it installed by GMC dealer. 25,000 miles , improves handling especially at high speed and in extreme wind. Dealer did want to bend brake lines near differential as per Helwig, appears to wearing out left bushing. Recommend Helwig Swaybar.

I have purchased it but haven't had a chance to install it. What's the issue with the brake lines?

Instructions want you to bend brake lines near differential. Dealers shop Forman slightly altered installation. I believe you can download installation instructions from Helwig website.

The instructions I was sent never mentioned 'bending' the brake line just running the U-bolts under it, on my 2017 the brake line is not snug against the axle. The installation instructions are attahced (note: this was current last year, it may have been updated and you can always contact their customer service for the latest version).

The only installation issues I had was the right drop link is close (~3/16") to the exhaust pipe and it took a lot of finessing (OK, 'swearing') to get the drop-link bracket bolts around the frame and everything adjusted. On the bright side it can be done by most people and if you do have problems you can still take it to someone else.

I should mention that this is an item I love - the length of the Colorado with crew cab w/long bed seemed to have a lot of body roll and this really tamed that for me.
