I would like to take a moment to thank all the good people here on IRV2 for all the great info I found regarding repairing sway concerns on my '97 F 53 chassis. I really like my class A gasser, but the swaying seemed unsafe.
After reading many threads and posting a few myself, I decided to upgrade the front shocks to FSD's and add rear air bags. During the air bag install I found the rear sway bar insulators were beyond worn out. After researching here on IRV2, I found a link for poly sway bar bushings, and replaced them also.
Today was the first day I have taken her out since I completed the repairs.
What a perfect day for a road test, high wind advisory through the pass.
The previous time I drove her up the hill it scared the daylights out of me. That day I felt like anything could have sent me into the guard rail. I felt out of control in perfect weather conditions, thank goodness there was no wind or rain that day!
Today I felt like I might as well have been driving a Ferrari up that hill. Even when a gust of wind came through a valley, I could barely feel it.
Thanks again for all the great advice!
