1998.5-2002 Dodge Ram 2500 Active Rate Sway Bar


Regular price $600.00

Our Swaybar is a softer rate than the stock unit, allowing the axle to move more independently side to side. This smooths out off camber bumps, pot holes, and even simply turning into a drive way.

  • 1998.5-2002 Ram 2500 4x4
  • 1998.5-2002 Ram 1500  4x4
  • Does not fit 1994 to early 1998 axles with the "Cobra style" axle mount.

  • Uses no solid joints like Heim joints or solid bushings. In this application, Heims can become noisy very early in the life-cycle, with the Swaybar moving so much.
  • 6 grease Zerk fittings used throughout the assembly.
  • Same proven JKS Poly orbital joints as used in our other Swaybar links.
  • Not recommended if you have a much higher center of gravity. For example, a slide in camper, or a heavy Roof Top Tent(RTT) equipped Overlanding build.
  • Our Active Rate Sway Bar functions great with heavy Gooseneck and 5th wheel towing, heavy weight in the bed below the top rail, or heavy weight on the bumper receiver hitch.

    Excellent design and fabrication

    Installed the sway bar along with the track bar, coils, control arms & new shocks. Can officially say my 2nd gen rides just as good as my 4th gen

    Night and day difference!

    You won't regret the purchase, just do it. I have the sway bar, Thuren Track bar, Synergy steering and drag link with fox stabilizer, redhead gear box, synergy coils, synergy adjustable control arms and fox shocks on all 4's. From the moment I backed out of my driveway and the truck flexed, I could instantly tell the ride was 10 times better. Easy install even with a gear box brace. All of the other components make the truck tight but this one gave it a true ride quality that I haven't felt before.

    Awesome Upgrade on my 2002 4X4 QC SB Ram 2500!!!

    I bought the Thuren Sway Bar to replace the OEM on my 2002 Ram 2500 4X4 QC SB that I've owned since I bought it new in the winter of 2001. This truck is my daily driver and is a cream puff with only 100k miles on it. I've replaced/upgraded numerous suspension parts on the truck (as well as performance/powertrain/esthetics/etc.), and this one was absolutely worth the price! REALLY smoothed out the bumps/ruts/potholes in the crappy metro roads here in Colorado, which is like driving in a 3rd world country. The truck tracks so much better/straighter now it's hard to believe and put into words; quality is second to none! I installed Skyjacker D25 coils 20 years ago and the BD adjustable track bar/mount 10+ years ago and have the Thuren 3" Softrides and Track Bar kit in my cart now; waiting to pull the trigger as soon.
    Great work Thuren Fabrication!

    Worked great on a custom build

    Used this sway bar on a 2001 dodge ram 1500 with a 2006 2500 9.25 front axle. Used along side with the Thuren 2nd gen track bar conversion bracket and bar, and a steering brace bracket as well. Rides freaking great too… No where near as harsh a ride as stock

    2nd Gen Sway Bar

    Awesome products and quality. Makes a HUGE difference in ride. Fantastic service. Everything Don and the crew makes just improves on a 2nd Gens ride.
