I drove about 180 miles to Titusville yesterday and am happy to report that the "fix" did a good job. I thought to myself, what a nice peaceful day. There must be no wind.

Then I noticed some flag poles and the flags were flying strongly in the wind. It also helped with big rigs passing me by. I can still feel them a little, but it's an improvement. I think I'll try the rear fix when I return.

It depends on which way a cross wind is blowing as to how much a passing truck affects your sway.

not sure why everybody doesn't want to do the rear at the same time you do the front by far the single best recommendation since I have on our rv

I did the front, then thought: That was easy enough, then climbed under the rear.

I gotta tell you, my front was a PITA. It took me over an hour and I had to go up and down several times with the jacks to get everything aligned. With it all the way down I couldn't get out the left side bolt and all the way up the right side wouldn't align. By rhe time I finished my back was shot. I had spinal fusion surgery in November and now I may try to do the back...feeling like a kid again, well as far as the back goes.

Fortunately, I was on fairly level ground and didn't even need any jacks.

I used a small hydraulic jack to get them to align. Maybe 20 minutes at most for the front, less for the rear as I knew I had to use a the jack and didn't have to go get it.

That's eventually what I did, but I thought I was doing something wrong when all I read was "easy peasy lemon squeezy"!!

I did both front and rear at the same time, wow what a difference. Really steadies the ride, glad I found this forum.

Makes me want to un-do mine to see how bad it was. I only drove it 5 miles home from the stealer before I did both of mine.
