I have an 05 38J and find myself constantly making small corrections an we are driving. Does anyone else experience the same problem. I am considering having a Davis Trac Bar installed. Anyone had the Bar installed? Did it help?

You may want to "read all about it" in a continuing series of articles I wrote in the Workhorse Chassis Forum.

Click here --> DriVer's After Market Suspension Modifications

Now after you've read all that stuff just know that if your front end alignment is out of "spec" your steering may present you with the same type of feeling. (see sawing) Before you do anything after market make absolutely sure that your pressures are up to spec (not over or under inflated) and that you front end alignment is right on the spec.

Let us know how all of that works out for you.

AMEN! to all of the above!

Your caster adjustment may be out of spec as mine, and others, was. It drives much better now.

I have little to no rear sway with my 2005 38R on a W24 chassis although I have more weight on the rear and less on the front than your 3 slide 38J.

There are a few things you can do before spending $$$.

Make certain you carry your feathers in the front basement compartments and your anvils toward the rear.

Weigh all four corners and adjust your tire pressure accordingly.

If I still experienced sway after exhausting a weight and balance I'd install a rear sway bar mounted from the axle housing to the frame rails such as Workhorse's bar pictured below.
