2005 KSDP 3907 W/O sway bar

My 2005 KSDP 3907 on Spartan MM chassis is not equipped with a sway bar on the Raco-Graning 12000# IFS front end. Can a sway bar be added? If so any guess on cost?
Thanks for any advice or recommendations.

I would think it would have a sway bar. Sure it does not?

As I remember the Reyco-Granning 12,000 front axle can be ordered with a sway bar. Not sure if it can be retrofitted at a reasonable cost.
Here's a link to the manual:" http://www.spartanchassis.com/cps/login/UploadedFiles/D9834%20IFS1200-1320-1370_3920091033404218750.PDF
which does show it as available and how to install it. Personally I never felt it was necessary on either of our Dutch Stars.

Thanks for the input.
Based on a visual inspection and the data plate # there is no sway bar. I believe a sway bar would enhance handling especially in cross wind driving conditions.
Cheers,
