We bought and had ours installed at Les Schwab. (Tire dealer in the West). The price was within <$10 of Amazon. I did have to pay for the install but I could have just done a carryout purchase.

The bar (rear) made a dramatic improvement in handling in my case.

Leaf Springs, Helper Springs and Suspension Parts | SD Truck Springs

That's where I got mine from did both front and rear on a '07 F-450. Not real hard to DYI. Took the better part of a day but took long coffee breaks.

Both were no big deal to do, I worked by myself, lifting them into place was no big thing as long as you think the job through. If you can follow simple instructions and turn a wrench it is simple.

When I say simple instructions I had a problem and just couldn't figure it out. Finally gave up and called Hellwig. As soon he started to explain I had the "doh" moment. We had a good laugh at my expense and he paid for the phone call.

Well worth the money spent.

Not sure what kind of vehicle you have, but I have had both front and rear E-450 Helwig bars on my wish list with Amazon for a week or so now. They show both in stock, 13 rears, 5 fronts. What is "fet"?

I installed them on ours last summer and the reduction in sway was dramatic. Got them from Amazon with free shipping and price was the lowest I could find at the time. Not a difficult install.

Bought the front from amazon and the rear from SD. Got free shipping on both and saved a bundle by splitting them up. Took me about two hours in the driveway to install both. This was the second time I've installed them, put then on the first RV, and in both cases they've made a world of difference.

Helwig seems to be the choice from what I've read on here and other sites. So front/ rear sway bars, steering stabilizer, not sure yet on shocks. The list just grows
This Jayco Greyhawk 31ds E450 V10 would be better maybe with a diesel engine. I like this Rv just will take time to make it better.
