There are many good one's out on the market. I have a Ford F350
diesel 4x4 and I added a stabilizer made by Rancho and am happy
with the results.

Also if your rig has more than 10,000 miles on it your shocks are
probably worn out and should also be replaced. I replaced all 4
of mine with Rancho 9000 adjustable gas shocks on my truck.

I just put on a Hellwig Anti-Sway bar on my 32 ft. Fleetwood to replace the OEM bar. It made a huge difference in steering just because it eliminated almost all the sway in the coach. The OEM appears to be a 1 inch diameter bar. My replacement bar is 1/1/2 diameter with neoprene bushings. I love the difference. Get very little steering roll in the wheel.

I ordered it from SD Trucking in CA. I think I payed $204 plus shipping, no tax. It was for my 2012 Fleetwood. One other thing I noticed was it cut down on movement of the unit when parked. It almost took the place of stabilizers. I am considering replacing the front one also which I believe will cut out the little bit of sway I still get. Truly did help a lot.

1997-2012 Ford E40 & E450 Super Duty Cut-A-Way Chassis - REAR Sway Bar (1 1/2 diameter) - 7180 | $204.95

I just test drove a friends Tioga 31M 2006 that I am actually going to buy if he accepts my offer. Anyway, he put in larger anti-sway bar and it drove like a dream today when I test drove it. It is much easier to drive than the current Ford 15 passenger Van we drive for tailgating. Would totally recommend doing it to take the play out of the wheel.

I just put my front Sway Bar on and what a difference. Took about an hour only because the two 18mm bolts were a bitch with the LocLite on them.

Installed Hellwig front and rear, didn't seem to make a big difference on the way to Vegas, however, had a car on a dolly in tow so I don't know what the difference is not towing. Maybe I expected to much.....
