The most recent pictures are definitely a track bar....one side is connected to the frame, the other to the spring pack assembly.

If it's frame to frame, why does the driver side look different than the passenger side? It looks like it goes to a leaf spring. That would keep the rear end centered under the chassis.


Edit: New pics clearly show it going to a leaf spring. It's a trac bar.

Dwights right. Sure looks like it stabilizes that spring pack..

Also I had a 1990 GeorgieBoy Cruise Master Mh on the John Deere/Oshkosh chassis without MorRide and it didn't have any of that...

Looks like it would be easier to fabricate one at home with it not going to the diff. The longer the bar, the less "bump steer".

Agreed, but wouldnt it have been less stressful on the spring and spring bolts? Dunno, they obviously have changed it now..

Yeah, I'm thinking about that. I don't think the spring is the best choice. Haven't looked, but if it could be run like a NASCAR trac bar, from frame to opposite lower shock mount.

This coach came from Fleetwood with the Mor/Ryde suspension on it. I have the original sticker with the manuals. However, passing trucks give me a pretty good push as they go roaring by. It has an anti-sway bar on the front like was described earlier on this thread. It has at least a one inch bar. I am in the process of installing new shocks, which is why you did not see them in the pictures. Original shocks were on this coach... w/29,000 miles. Trying to find some Koni's to replace OEM shocks, but since the coach is 23 years old, we are having to go by OEM specs. Sure can get complicated trying to sort this stuff out. Thank god for all you great people on this forum who are willing to freely share your knowledge. Hope I can pay it forward in the future. Thanks, Tom

What do you mean by a pretty good push? Push as in lean or the feeling of being pushed sideways. You're never going to get rid of the rush of air from a truck. What it does is a different story. The Cheap Handling Fix does away with the lean on curves and does help with the truck wind.
