    Hi Tejay:
    We have done the CHF front and rear on our 326TS several yrs ago. I noticed a few trips ago the rocking was much worse... Today I looked and I am missing the drivers side rear sway bar beacket. Bushing is black and looks ok but bracket is missing. Where can I get spare bracket and do I need blue bushings while I am under there? Do you have part #s, sources etc????? Its crazy scary to drive this thing...


    Thanks

    Hi Tejay- Hope you can help. I have a new 2018 winny Vista Lx 30T.. Very unhappy with ride. Unbelievably harsh, pounding ride and so much sway its out of control. Had Koni,s and Safety plus installed and this helped control but not ride. Plan on doing CHF and need info on your brackets? I think the ride is worse after installing the Koni,s. Is this possible? How do you live with the ride and have you mitigated the pounding? My weight forward is 5950 and rear is 11400. I have 70lbs in front tires and 80 in rear. 18k chassis. Almost feels like no spring compression in front. Need your advice. Thanks John

    I think it works better because you don't bottom out the suspension on the rubber bumpers with them. The f53 doesn't have that much travel when loaded, on bumps when it hits those stops, that's where the slam is. I would like to see a gopro mounted viewing a stock suspension over bumps. I bought mine through Amazon

    Tim, long time no talk. Saw your response on driving the V10 F53 and thought I say hey. We traveled the entire summer with 3 and 5 grandkids, all good here.

    Hope all goes well with you also.

    TeJay,

    Thanks. But before you replace the rack I would check the tightness of all your hose fittings; especially the return line and cooler fittings. The air may getting in through lines as well as the rack seals themselves. I doubt the pressure line will be the problem, but the return lines could be a potential source. Don't know the configuration of the Ranger, but some return have o rings that could go bad. Probably not the problem, but a lot easier than replacing the rack to find out a line was the cause. Jim

    TeJay,

    It looks like you are the resident expert on sway bar issues on the F53 chassis. I have a 2014 and I have a broken bracket on drivers side rear. I looked on Ebay at what Skuterdude sells and nothing goes that new. Do you have contact info for him? I haven't been able to find it. I am also interested in moving the links closer to the axle what I think you call CHF, whatever that means. Do you sell those brackets or do you know where I can get them?

    Thanks,
    Mark

    received the brackets today! They look awesome. I'll put them on tomorrow, I put the roadmaster rear on a couple of days ago getting ready for the trip to Brooksville Fl on Saturday.
    Thanks Again John
