I recently received a letter in the mail from Henderson's Line-up that they have an upgrade for their SuperSteer Rear Trac Bar. It's a new differential bracket that fits on the existing differential bracket and the differential for a solid fit according to the information sent to me. Is anyone familiar with this? Has anyone installed it or had it installed? What's it all about? I e-mailed Henderson's after I received the notice but haven't gotten any responce back.

I just installed one on my F53 Ford chassis. It had the upgrade...all it was on the Ford version was an addional bracket to brace the main bracket that is mounted to the differential...I would assume yours would be along the same line. Seemed like it was a good idea to have the extra support for the bracket.

Some of these rear trac bars are coming loose on the differential side.So this is somewhat of a recall to address this issue.To get the parts you need call 800-245-8309 & they will send them to you.

Thanks!
I just called their number (800-245-8309). I have the SS302 trac bar installed on the Workhorse W22, and they are sending the additional bracket.
Jeff at Henderson's said they are having problems with the trac bar on some coaches, with tail wag causing the differntial side bolts to work loose. I'm going to check my bolts today just in case before my parts arrive, the torque should be 120ft pounds.

Yep, the upgrade kit arrived today and that's what it is. It's an additional brace to attach to the current bracket and the differential that kind of forms a triangle for the trac bar to attach to. Looks like it will be an easy install but I'll have to wait now till spring when we take our motorhome out of storage. My thanks to Henderson's Line-up for the quick response and for the free upgrade to current owners.
