    Hey Guys maybe you can help on this also, I just finished mounting my Minute Mount 1 to my 94 F150. I cant seem to get the sway bar back on. Has anyone had this problem?

    Yup, you have to 86 the sway bar.

    I guess a common problem, Huh? Would eliminating the sway bar cause any major issues?

    What plow and what suspension rating in the front do you have?

    I have a 7 1/2 ft mm1, suspension with dual shocks in front. I believe it has the heavier duty front suspension since it is a work truck setup

    Yeah I know, Yopu have to make due with what you have. Truck is going to be primarily used for plowing, Everything else seemed to mount properly. I have spent to much time and money to abandon tthis project. What do you forsee the major problems would be with removing the sway bar! I first have to drivee the truck to my fathers in Pennsylvania, about a hundred miles. Lots of windey roads! I assume the truck would be pretty squirrely without the sway bar.

    You don't have the 3800 front end, you have the lighter duty. They don't make a kit for you.

    I am pretty sure the only answer is to remove the sway bar.

    The truck will sway now, not sure how safe it would be.

    I know its not what you wanted to hear.... Thats my luck

    I am pretty sure you can get off road style aftermarket sway bars. You may be able to adapt something.

    You may want to consider heavier springs/ timbrens as well.

    You will probably end up with some problems plowing. Take it easy.

    Good luck.
