Sway Bar End Link Bushings

Needing to locate the sway bar end links bushings for both ends of the sway bar. The existing black rubber "donut" bushings are cracked and wasted and need replacing. Our CC owner's notebook calls out part no. 38595-6 "anti-sway bar kit."
Any suggestions where we can get our hands on new ones to install?

While we're at it, what shocks are you using on the coach? ( CC Manual part no.38595-7)?

Thanks to the group for your always-great-help!

Mike

Mike,

I believe you will have to go to Hollad Neway IFS ....

SAF-HOLLAND USA, Inc.

and you may have to call them for information as I think those part numbers you have are Country Coach Part #'s.

Possibly this Country Coach Web but I haven't tried it.

John,
I think you might have nailed it! I found the parts blow-up for what looks like their CC version IFS in their part catalogue and, there it is... Sway bar and end links with the bushings. Looks right but I'll call them in the morning to double check. I'll report back. Many thanks. BTW, any idea as to what shocks to use?
Mike

Mike,

I glad that I may have been some help as I was only going on memory (what there is of it) as I had dealt with the same problem a couple of years ago.
I am using Koni FSD's now but the original issue was occasional bottoming out on dips which I resolved, with help from the yahoo Country coach forum, by readjusting my front Ride Height valve just about an inch higher. I'm happy with the Koni's but I've read great things about the Road King shocks $$.

I'll add $.02 on the shocks portion. The needs of a 36' vs 40' are different. Especially on the front end of the IFS Coaches.

I do like the Road Kings, have 6 of them all around. On our 40' Allure, our Koni Adustable SP1 generation shocks were just not up to the job. Koni knew this, and argued with National/Country Coach about the shocks they wanted to use as being undersized for the job. I suspect the Koni Adjustable SP3 (current generation) set on the 3 or 4 or 5 setting, would do a great job on a 36' Inspire. Koni talked me out of considering the FSD's, as when I talked to them 2 1/2 years ago (think the gents name was Justin), the comment was that the 40' IFS Country Coaches would not be well served by the FSD. Now, the Inspire is not as heavy as the Allure/Intrigue/Magna - so may do a good job now. And as I'm not current on the Koni FSD developments over the last couple years, the settings may have changed.

I liked and respectred Koni suggesting I wait for the then 'soon to come' Koni Adjustable SP3 shock - it was the right thing to tell me as a customer.

I went with the Road Kings, due to some finacial credit as part of the purchase agreement on our rig, so my Road King's were partially paid for...

Long post, but my main message is that shocks for a 36' can be different then for a 40' rig...

Best of luck to you, have fun, be safe,
Smitty
