F53 Rear Sway Bar

I ordered a Blue Ox rear track (panard bar) bar. Went to put it on last night and the bracket that fits to the rear end housing did not line up.
Thru the old stand by You tube, I found a video on how to install the super steer product and there are 2 read ends. An American and a "foreign" version. The bolt patterns are different and the markings on the heads of the bolts are different.
Couple of notes here. I thought I was ordering direct from Blue OX, but actually it was a .com Blue Ox towing with an email address of "hitch finder". The part came from Ridged hitch who is a Blue OX dealer. So, they are all feigning no knowledge of this.
To be safe, if I had to do again, go to super steer who puts both brackets in the kit.\

So, what did you end up doing? I am getting ready to build a panhard bar for my F53.
Doesn't look too hard.

Before I ordered the SuperSteer Rear Track Bar directly from SuperSteer, I watched an on-line video about the installation and then crawled underneath my motorhome to determine the right one to order...A SS400 for my 2013 Itasca Sunstar 30T.

Upon receipt of the track bar, I parked the mh on completely level ground so there was no load on the sway bar and followed the instructions step-by-step to perform the installation.

One additional thing I did was to disconnect the swaybar link at the frame attachment on the driver's side to make installation easier. Took 2-3 hours under the mh. Fairly strenuous under there; but, doable for someone that is mechanically inclined and has the right tools.
