Has anyone looked at installing the late model larger swaybar on a earlier chassis? It looks like it should be an easy change. I would like to try this if I don't have to take the front-end apart. I'm driving a 2002 36foot Allegro Bay which we enjoy very much.

Regards, Quesidog

Yes I have looked at that article, but have not done the rear track bar yet. I am starting to have my son-inlaw build one for me. But my wife really doesn't like the rocking when we go over any speedbumps or in and out of driveways. I had put Bilsteins on as soon as I bought the coach. They are great. I weighed each corner and have adjusted the pressure accordingly. In addition I put a put a K&N air filter on as soon as I got it. I get 6.5 to 7 miles per gallon and am thinking of a ram air intake next. Thanks for the feedback

Regards, quesidog

I had the bigger swaybar and Bilsteins put on my '03 Workhorse chassis as part of the deal on my '04 Suncruiser. Workhorse had a kit that included these parts. Never drove the MH before adding the bigger swaybar so don't how much difference it made..but am happy with the setup I have.

I just talked to a Workhorse dealer today Guaranty Chevrolet, in Santa Ana, Calif. The Workhorse service manager showed me the thread on the workhorse site which has upgrades for RV chassis. They do have a suspension upgrade kit with Bilsteins and the 2.5 inch swaybar. I believe this will help anyone looking for better sway control and I am going to install the swaybar myself since I have already got the Bilsteins. Thanks to everone who responded and I will let you know how the difference feels.
