About par for 97% of the CW's. Ask them to fix "A" and they attempt to fix "G" and screw up "Q" in the process.

What chassis GVW do you have? You might do some digging around in the Ford Chassis section if you haven't already.

I have gotten a price from a different RV shop for the Henderson Track bar, part #ss400 for $525.00, not sure if I really want to spend that much. The CHF helped a lot and not sure if I can convince the DW if it's worth the extra money.

Do a search on here for track bars. I made my own front and rear for under 100$ in parts. Check a good weld and fab. Shop and get a price if you can't do your own. The CHF and both track made my 20,500 lb. fleetwood Handel great. I do a 3,000 mile round trip every year. N.Y. To Fl. For winter.

DuippyTwo;

You may be light and on a shorter wheel base F53.

When I owned my 30 ft Mirada, I was going to do a trak bar. However, after I did the CHF and put on new shocks (mine were wore out) I didnt see a need for it, even when towing a toad.

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

Check ultra track bar at Brazzles.com. $450. I have the chf also but the rear track bar was money very well spent

I'll have to put the Track Bar on hold for now, but if ever my DW decides to drive the MH and see's that there is still some wagging in the tail then I will put them on. Now, time to start bugging her to drive.

I just installed the Brazels UltraTrac UTF53V8R last week before our trip down to the coast. It made quite a difference in handling with a cross wind and pulling the toad. I think that I am done with suspension upgrades for now. I have completed the CHF, replaced the factory Bilsteins with Monroe Gas Magnum RV shocks and replaced the rear sway bar bushings with urethane (OEM were missing). Handles much better now, but I still prefer the way our diesel PU hauling a 5'er handled.

There is a SuperSteer rear track bar that is exactly the same as the Brazels product - except it is painted blue. You will also notice that the installation instructions vary between the two units. I think that the SS instructions are more correct when it comes to the frame attachment steps.

Installation took me about four and a half hours.

I did the CHF on my front axle and added a safe t plus to the front. I added a rear auxiliary sway bar, and a track bar and I couldn't be happier. Drive much better.
