Default new sway bar??

I installed the RC 2.5"sl kit on my 01 blazer an I now I have a roaring noise kinda like a wheel hub would do when bad...I know the sway bars bushings are shot but that's because of the extreme angles from the a arms to the sway bar so....do any companies offer aftermarkets...my thinking the bushings are shot causing road noise to come the body

You could measure the stock sway bar end link length and get a longer one from auto zone or rock auto.

this may help
I would measure stock and add 2.5
You could likely cross their number over to moog so you can get locally

I know moog has a similar chart but couldn't find online

I think your comment about not making a bit of difference on road is misguided at best. Gross misinformation at worst.

usually people with 4wd's dont take high speed corners especially with an s10 blazer. but since i have removed mine i would say on road suffers very little, braking and cornering at the posted speed limits i dont notice the truck to handle diffrent at all. off road is about 1000 percent better smoother, more articulation and more ground clerence on a first gen with the way they are designed. plus i noticed the front end popped up about an inch becausethe sway bar binds the two side together. just my opinion but if you are a serious off roader and want the most out of the crappy stock ifs remove it and see what you think you can always put it back on just saying.

Not to mention my truck doesnt have a rear say bar either never had one they are a waste unless you have a one ton truck loaded with weight all the time or a performance 2wd which i also have.

btw kilo how do you like the lift kit? Im dying to buy one have to save a little more.
