1995 G2500 Vandura, did all stocks and air bags in rear looks great no more sag however for better handling would a front stabilizer be worth installing or even a rear sway bar?

The problem I've found with rear sway bars is finding a kit with good attachment points for the unibody. Most manufacturers say their kits won't fit.
We run the Hellwig 2500 setup on our '95 G20 and like it a whole lot. We regularly tow our travel trailer and the kit has been a game changer. Best thing we've done for handling was chunking the car tires and running LTs.

I run dual ft stabilizers on both of my vans ... Monroe on the Rhino and Rancho on my Big Red . Both were made custom due to the fact that there no kits for vans.


These tires got replaced by BFG'S also.. these Michelin Touring tires (60K warranty) came apart after a few thousand miles ... also put a ft anti sway bar for better handlin on these long boys

Thanks,,I did the Airlift Airbags and love it but running stupid passenger tires, new KBY stocks and great improvement.... May replace bushing at front sway bar and add a good front stabilizer with new LT tires on all 4 corners if I can find some nice wheels....problem with rear is no mounting points after airbag install. Maybe tighten up steering box a quarter turn and let her eat,,,drives pretty good for an old girl....

I have a Hellwig front swaybar and an Addco rear swaybar (Hellwig is discontinued), however this kit looks like the best out of all of them....

I have Helwig front and rear on both my 83 and my 97. Fairly certain Helwig will make their older stuff at any point as well. They may not keep them on the shelf but they will make them.
