Question Help Installing Roadmaster Stabilizer Bar

Hey!

So, I need some help... I went online (https://fitmaster.roadmasterinc.com/...UNTAIN+MASTER+) and purchased both the Reflex Stabilizer Bar and the mounting brackets that go along with it. Here's the instructions that come along with the brackets and everything which is supposedly for my year (http://www.roadmasterinc.com/pdfinst/RBK7.pdf)

Below you'll see all the images of under my RV... Apparently it already had a stabilizer system but it looks really bad. I just want someone to confirm that this is a stabilizer system that's already on there and that it's ok to remove and replace with this new one. I attempted to look up the numbers on the old system but I can't find anything online.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not familiar with the new system you plan to install . Pictures look like the old, well used, system of two shocks mounted to the frame and then attached to the steering tie rod can be removed. Installation of the new system may require some mods in order to install. Had you looked into the possibility of just replacing the old shocks on the system?

Probably a lot easier and way less $$$ to just replace the worn steering stabilizers. Easy job, I recently replaced mine:

Oh wow nice! Thanks for the info. I looked everywhere for the part numbers on the old ones but couldn't find anything. I saw you mentioned that you replaced your shocks as well, what brand did you get?

Thanks!

My coach was OEM with Blisten, there's a pretty strong Koni shock following on this site, but I went back with Blisten

....I can say that replacement stabilizers made a positive difference.

Your stabilizers look like the Rancho brand I use on my Jeep. They have a RS5000 series. I was unable to read the part number. Try calling 4WHEEL DRIVE @ 800-333-5535. Stabilizers sometimes go bad with bad out of balance tires. Those look okay. You may drop one and try cycling it like a regular shock to see how strong it is. Lots of luck.

That makes the $57 with free shipping from Amazon a deal...
