I already did that none of them in stock for a 4wd sport

Well crap, you must have my luck. I was hoping that could find you one. If you have a "Pull-a-part" yard near you maybe they have a used one. Or, maybe just the run of the mill junk/salvage yard could have one. It's so aggravating to get new stuff we need these days, and it doesn't seem to be getting any better. Good luck.

Called 3 of them up to 2 hours away one dealer said I can get it in a month so guess I’ll just wait

Unless you're autocrossing with the truck,there's a good chance you won't even notice it missing.Lots of trucks that are drag racing don't have the front swaybar on them,including mine.The front swaybar is also missing on my wifes Challenger ,and it's not even noticed on the car either.I wouldn't worry about it missing for a month if you have to wait for one.I drive roads where there's grizzly bears in the ditch,and don't even notice the front swaybars missing

I do a lot of towing with my boats 10k lbs so kinda important if I have to lock brakes up

If you're towing that heavy with a 1500,hopefully you've upgraded the rear swaybar. Why in hell don't you have at least a 2500 if you're towing 10,000 lbs,that's more then a 1500 should have tied to it's asss.If you can afford a 10,000 lb boat,you can afford a 2500.Just my .02 though,but i think you're nuts to tow that much with a 1500.

Last year, I recall driving down a country road (at night) on the way home. It was late enough there wasn't any traffic. Out from a corn field trot a couple deer. It was so sudden and close ...one of those oh-shhhht moments, lol. I barely had time to stomp on the brake and do a very sudden and quick 'Left-Rright-Left' jog of the wheel. It must have been like the test track videos you sometime see where they squeal around slalom cones (where the tires look like theyre peeling over the rims!).

Anyway, anything that was sitting on the seats ended up on the floor! But I missed the deer by a hair and was truly amazed how well the 1500 handled it ...like it was no big deal. Pretty sure the traction control kicked in. Not my first run-in with deer by any means, but I suspect the front sway bar was a big part of helping keep it under control in that particular fast maneuver situation.

I wonder if other Ram owners have had their's crack too, if the salvage yards don't have them. The old 'solid' anti-sway bars used to be hardy, not much demand for them at junk-yards. But the mfgrs have gone with hollow-core anti-sway bars for many yrs now.
