Sway bar doesn't make a difference though i would recommend you keep it on with a 6" lift.

Did you install it yourself or have a shop install it? If a shop, take it back. If you installed it, you probably need to take pictures and post them of the suspension in detail so that we might be able to see whats wrong.

Try adjusting your coil-overs. The driver side is heavier, as the gas tank is on this side. And do yourself a favor and put different shocks on the rear than what came with the RC 6" kit (RC Performance 2.2 shocks I believe). These shocks make the ride waaaay stiff. Good luck with everything and keep us posted! :bigthumb:

The "FJ lean" is exsadurated with the 6 inch lift! Since your not running a sway bar try this...

In a level lot (if wet works best) place in park, with the engine still running, cut the wheel all the way to the left, then all the way to the right.

Your load on the suspension should shift, making opipiset sides of the truck rise and fall. Giving you a difrent "lean" in each direction! Go back and forth with the wheel till the truck is level, now look at where your wheels are pointing, if not straight then it's the lower alainment points! My lift was off also, adjustable upper arms should fix this! I went with SPC, as they are easiest to adjust.

Or get the Icon adjustable 6-7" coil overs and set as needed ;)

And new rear shocks is a good idea, as they pretty much ride on the shaft bump stops!

Well, got my rear left shock replaced and had them adjust up to about another inch in the front. All covered under warranty :cheers:. . They had trimmed a bit of the bumper and the wheel well areas and now when i make my sharp left turns im not getting that grinding sound. Im glad the tires were grinding on soft plastic vs. metal. The truck is stiffer than ever now and feels so solid after getting this stuff done.
