I just installed the Roadmaster RSSA on our 2013 Phaeton w/Freightliner chassis. It appears the design has changed and it no longer uses set screws, instead a single bolt & nut that clamps the collar to the shock body. Unfortunately the revised instructions are not clear at all. Mounting it is not a difficult process, hardest part is breaking the nuts and bolts loose for the bracket that mounts to the chassis. When I got the stabilizer mounted I noted the spring was not tight to the collar, see first pix. I loosened the collar bolt(blue arrow 2nd pix) and was able to rotate the aluminium collar and it now seems to be installed correctly. I will be contacting Roadmaster to offer my comments so they can consider editing the instructions. Just wanted to save someone from wasting time. Also installed new Koni shocks on the front. Can't wait to get out and go for a test ride.

Looks like Roadmaster has made an effort to improve the attachment method. Looks more secure and not hidden under label. Thanks for the update.
