F53 Quick Fix

I did the quick fix on my 2007 Pace Arrow rear sway bar about 1 years ago. Everything was fine until recently, when I made a hard right turn I would hear a clank in the back. I had my unit in for service and they found the Sway Bar Bushings were finished. The mechanic thought it was due to change in hole positions, so he moved the hole positions back to the original settings.
Has anyone else had this problem after doing the change?

I am going to try this setting on my next trip, then will decide if I change again.
Would like to send a picture, but not sure how

If the rear sway bar bushings were original I would be surprised they lasted as long as they have. Back in 2011 when I first got my coach the bushings had disintegrated after 5 years in service. Replace the with blue poly bushings I found on eBay for about $50 or so. Poly bushings should outlast the coach roof with a bit of luck.

Concerning the "quick fix" do you mean the cheap handling fix, aka CHF. I did the change in 2012, a year after replacing the bushings and haven't had a problem with the bushings or the other hardware associated with the sway bar.

Thanks for the reply, I assumed as much and will adjust the sway bar back to the CHF holes.
Since I have the new bushings already replaced, I will leave these for now and check them once In a while.
