Check your anti sway bar bushings.. My rear ones were completely gone.

Thanks for the heads up. I plan on going through the chassis this weekend and get everything all lubed up since who knows when the last time it was done. It can't hurt the put fresh grease in it.

This is the ones I ordered.

Several on here have used these also. Took just a few days to come. Replacing them was not difficult. Took longer to get the rear bolts out than any other step.

Yeah, after you mentioned that last night, i went on and bought these ones too. I figured id just change em out anyway to go from the crappy rubber ones that ford puts on there to the poly to avoid any issues later...

I sprayed all the nuts and bolts with PBblaster each day while I waited for the parts to come in.

When doing the work, I rolled the mh up on stacked 2x12s that I had here to give me more room to move about under there.

I already had the 2x12s .. I carry them Incase I am on a campsite that is not level.

No!......(but it could be an air compressor for "some sort of braking system for a towed vehicle").

FWIW - given the number of folks who talk about carrying a compressor I would figure out what it took to get it working just to use as an air source when needed.

It is an air compressor for a RoadMaster/BrakeMaster auxiliary braking system for a towed vehicle. Go to the back of the MH you should see an air chuck by the hitch. An air line connects to this fitting and to a mating fitting on the towed vehicle. From there an air line is routed through the engine compartment to under the dash. An air cylinder hooks to a mounting bracket under the driver's seat and to the brake petal. A Proportioning valve in the brake line of the MH will energize the air line proportionately to the applied braking the the MH. this is one of the best towed vehicle systems out there.
