Sorry I missed your post, I hope this information is still timely:

Those cracked rubber bushings would make some of the small swaying and rocking more noticeable--but more likely squeaks and rattles. The amplitude of large sways and rocking is more than would be caused by those.

I'm not specifically familiar with either of these, but they should have about what you'd be looking for.

Looking at the Roadmaster installation instructions, there is no welding required, it mounts to the axle with Ubolts:

Hellwig's is similar:

I would assume these kits are in the $400-500 range.

For a vintage MH budget solution, I would also assume one could build one off of a junkyard 1T dually pickup rear antisway bar.

Junkyard antisway takeoffs are $50-65.
This seller has multiple takeoffs. It would be worth inquiring if he would also include mounts and end links.
