CHF-Adjustable Links

I did the CHF, but just moved the stock links on my 2014 F53 Allegro to the other holes. I want to replace those and use adjustable Helwig links as many have done

I assume that since adjustables are being used, the length must be different from the stock length. How do I determine the correct length to use when installing the Helwigs?

Thank you.

When I checked the Helwig specs the F53 chassis was not listed for use. Maybe they will have a new product.

I used the Helwigs on the front of my 11 Bounder. Not sure I had to do this but I had an extra $90 at the time. Did not hurt.

You wan't to keep the sway bar ends in approximately the same position they were in with the original setup. On my old F53 front end that was fairly close to parallel with the ground. No matter where you end up adjusting the links you should verify that there is clearance with all moving parts as your suspension moves up and down.

Thanks to all who replied. Checked with Hellwig and they do not make adjustable links for my 2014 Ford F53 chassis motorhome.

I have a set I removed off my f53 and installed the plate. Pay the shipping and you can have them.
Mine is a 2003 if they are the same.
