2007 Outlaw Steering / anti sway bar

I have a 2007 Outlaw 3611. I just installed a safe-T-plus steering control and Koni shocks, tires are new and at recommended pressure for the load and the alignment is good.. This has helped a little with the wandering problem, but I still feel that I don't really have control at 60mph. I am thinking of installing a rear anti sway bar. The propaganda says this will control the back end and stop the back end from throwing the front end around. As far as I can see there is no anti sway bar on the unit. Has anyone added this and has it helped with the wandering?
Appreciate any comments and help you can give me.
Thanks and have a great day.
Jim

Besides the Safe T Plus and Koni shocks, I have added a Rear Trac Bar (Stops the tail from wagging the dog) and front and rear anti sway bars. Control is fine even at 80 mph on down hill grade. Anti-sway bars also took care to the wringed wash rag feeling exiting drive ways and negotiating exit ramps.

The softer riding 22,000lb Ford chassis has anti-sway bars front and rear.
The Workhorse, W24 chassis have torque tubes on the springs (serve a similar function) front and rear.

Larger after market sway bars are available for both chassis.

We are happy with our W24 as is with Bilstein shocks and a Safe-T-Plus.

Safe travels

Scrab0088,

If you're happy with your Bilstein shocks, I believe you'd be thrilled with Koni. But that is just MHO.

Agreed...The Bilsteins were replacements in 2011, so I am expecting them to last about 4-5 years like the originals.

They have good road manners, but when crossing a curb or speed bump at a diagonal there is more body roll than I would like. Just would hope the Koni's aren't too stiff over normal surfaces.

Safe travels

Thanks for your comments. I am going to install a front and rear track bar. Won't be able to check for performance until I head South in January.
