For what it's worth, BOTH.
At least that's what I think you're asking.
I used Steer Safe on my class A as well, that helped too.

Since they do two different jobs, you want both. Any A should come with ASBars. You just want to check the bushings periodically to be sure they're in good shape. If you have a Ford chassis, read the "cheap handling fix" thread in that forum.

Bushings is a Place to Start

I got a HUGE difference, just removing the bar and installing a set of bushings.

Now, did the bushings themselves make the difference? Or, was it that I torqued all the bolts? Or, maybe it was the lube I used. There is really no way of knowing.

I do know that, after a few miles of driving, I had to re-tighten the nuts that clamp the antisway bar to the axle.

For that reason, I've added retorquing all the antisway bar nuts to my periodic maintenance list.

It was the bushing unless the bolts where backed out 1/4 - 1/2 inch. The lube merely keeps the bushings from squeaking and when them suckers start squeaking, you will know it!

Hi motormama,
The answer all depends on what problem you are trying to solve. The answer could be one or the other or both. Can you provide additional information on what you are trying to do?
