So, if I understand the above discussion....for a truck that will ONLY be on hardtop roads as a second vehicle new shocks and PERHAPS removing that sway bar might effect an improvement in ride?

give it a shot. all you have to do is disconnect one end link. drive around with it. if it sways too much for ya, just reinstall the one end link.

You guys really are going to make me un hook my sway bars and get new shocks,....aren't you???
