YMR mounting

Hi, got around to looking to putting these anti roll brackets on the front axle and really have no clue at all how to mount them. I understand they are to be welded on but have no reference to what side,up or down, inside or outside or any placement clue.
No instructions were in the box when they arrived and after looking at more threads than I'd like to mention I would like to ask for help from someone who knows how this is done. of the threads read it is mentioned this being a easy job......if you know how to do it.


Any pictures of a front axle mounting with the YMR brackets would really help.
All I'm looking to do is to tac them on and have a local (very expencive) shop finish the welds

Thank you

Hopefully these get you somewhere. The top ear with the hole in it is what you need to use to locate the bracket, since the rear bolt through the radius arm passes through it.

This has become a priority to me as I tell everyone after a trip down the highway,
I've gotten more skid marks in my jeans than a dragstrip has,because of other larger vehicles draft blowing me off the road

You probably just need better shocks and radius arm bushings. I've taken the front anti-sway bar off every rover ive ever had (around 20) because the fronts in these trucks have so little flex. The rear is where you really need it. The rear 3 link can get a little squirelly on the highway if you have any lift at all and no sway bar

That's kinda the culprit, RTE 3" and pulling a Sankey.

Looking forward to talking a trip but this has to be dealt with firstly.
Small steering wheel, lift, trailer, highway speeds, not a fun time.

Castor correction would be the high on my "to do" list if I were you. Offset rims or wheel spacers are notorious contributors to "death wobble" too in case you have experienced that fun

What else would you like to see?

Install should be really straight-forward. Just clean your axle tube up with a grinder, pull the nut off the radius arm bolt and slide the bracket over, using the pictures I provided as a reference point to how the bracket is oriented. Then just re-install the nut, tighten it down to draw the new swaybar bracket flat against the radius arm tab and give it a few tacks.

Since the bracket already has a radius to align with the axle tube, plus a bolt that locates it, there's really not a whole lot you can get wrong.
