Question 1981 Winnie Warrior sway bar parts

1981 Warrior front sway bar part.It looks like a "U" that goes around the rubber of the sway bar and then attaches to the frame.One of them cracked around the bolt hole.It's a P30 chassis.Camera's batteries are dead so I don't have pictures.Not sure given the age of the Motor Home where to get a replacement.

P30's are based on the GM step van chassis. This is a great source for step van parts: Mill Supply Index

It looks like part number "F",but the description isn't what I have.I have a "A" frame front end,not a straight axle.

First I would download their pdf catalog: http://www.millsupply.com/ftp/stepva...-workhorse.pdf

While I would call them to confirm, "Independent" front suspension components are on pdf page 26. "I Beam" (Workhorse chassis) are on pdf page 32. Looks like you have to purchase the complete bushing assembly. You would need to measure your shaft diameter.

Reffered to as a Stabilizer Shaft Bracket in the 84 Chevy Service Manual (81 would be the same).

I just went through this in our 87 Rockwood (P30). Standard sway bar is 1 3/8 but I had a after market sway bar by IDP that was 1.51 inches. Long story short I found them at Helwig and they bolted up just fine. You will need to measure your to get the right bushing/bracket.
