Recently purchased and installed a rear trac bar.During installation I realized there was not enough travel clearance between the bar and the exhaust pipe. Dealer forgot to mention the need for a tail pipe "kit" required to relocate the exhaust from behind the rear wheels to ahead of the rear wheels. Luckily we had enough time to have a local muffler shop relocate the exhaust before our vacation started. Lesson learned: Always ask if there is any additional hardware required to complete installation. Could save lots of time waiting for another UPS delivery. Happy camping to "You-All"

This is what happens here all the time. What was old is new again.

The track bar makes a big difference in controlling yaw or fish tailing on the rear and front axles. It'll straighten your rig right out and you will see a marked difference in every day handling that is often induced by passing high speed vehicles and or crosswinds.

The new Henderson SS-302 is pre-bent so it can accommodate an over the axle tail pipe without any need for a modification.

Daveb PT: Yes the rear trac bar did help and is fairly easy to install. I would recomend one, like Driver said, the newer verson does'nt require the exhaust pipe to be relocated.
