Is there any benefit to the swaybar if I am going with Geiser Progressive springs on the front and Deaver +3s on the back of my truck? i.e. Do the Geisers and Deavers provide enough cornering and handling performance on their own?

I have the swaybar on for 5 years now. It's a must have!!!

Make sure you have the U-bolts connected as far apart as possible, as close as you can get it to the bend that goes forward to the links.

Couple of things I had to do.
Buy the collars to keep the swaybar from shifting left or right.

Second, I had to have Crazy House Custom put some welds on the brackets holding the U-bolts to keep it from twisting.
I got tired of constantly readjusting the damn thing. And because I have the AFE Diff cover I don't have much room.

I have it on the hardest setting which I couldn't tell a difference when I switched.
I may ask for a stiffer one.
