Chassis Performance

Has anyone tried the chassis performance package from Blue OX (Trac Bars & Sway Bars) and if so are they worth the money?

probably the same stuff I had put on by a company called ralliesrus at Tiffin Rally last year in Orlando, he goes to the same factory rallies BlueOx goes to. Bigger front sway bar and additional sway bar behind rear diff. with a track bar. Installs at campsite, while your at the rally. Helps driving a lot and controls sway. his wedsite has his phone nbr, but e-mail didn't work last time I tried it. Dave

On what coach? To solve what problem? If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it is broke, figure out what needs fixing and buy that. Just throwing a generic package at it doesn't make sense [to me, anyway].

If it is a Ford gasser, try the cheap handling fix first. It has worked well for my rig.

What is the cheap handling fix? What did you do to your rig to make it handle better.

I did the cheap handling fix, and it did make an improvement. But, not to my satisfaction, so I went with front and rear 1.75" sway bars and steering stabilizer. That made the improvement in handling I was looking for. I agree with everyone else, try the cheap fix first and go from there. My .02

Roadmaster Sway Bars

I do not know what kind of coach you have. We have a 34' Holiday Rambler on rail and spring. No airbags. I started by adding the rear anti-sway bar, drove it some, added the front anti-sway bar. Better and then went to the steering stabilizer. Took all three to improve the handling in cross winds and while being passed by the big rigs. Still a driving challenge in strong winds.
