Rear sway bar install - worthy upgrade

I had a rear sway bar (hellwig) installed today on our 2005 Chinook on the E350 chassis and am very pleased with the dramatic improvement in handling. I took it out on a local road that I've been on before that has multiple curves, sags in the asphalt near the lane edge, etc. Previously this was a harrowing experience in the past 2 RVs I've owned. With this change the sway is largely gone and steering characteristics have improved. Well worth it.

I would think this bar would improve the handling on your rig. I'm happy.
