Your rig looks nice and clean.
If it's my rig your talking about....Other than the stripes on it, the rest is in good shape everything is original in it, It stays under a gazebo out of the sun and the rain. Thanks

If you disconnected the sway bar from the frame you could easily move it up and down. Moving the sway bar up or down will not change "preload" at all. If you wanted to change the amount of force that it took to cause the bar to articulate then you would have to move the frame mounts towards the rear of the motor home or closer to the axle mounting point. This would make it so there would need to be more force to allow for the same amount of articulation, but I have to agree with a few of the above posters. I would install an airbag setup before messing with the sway bar. Last year I installed a new bell crank and that removed all my steering play; then front airbags and shocks which stabilized the front and reduced bottoming out. Last month I finally installed an Airlift airbag setup on the rear and that was the final missing piece of this puzzle. After playing with the air pressure, front and rear. I was able to get it dialed in and it rides and handles dramatically better than before. I still get moved around when a large tractor\ trailer passes me, but that is to be expected because I am driving a large billboard mounted on a 1 ton truck chassis.
