Wow! Well, the good news is, when you fix the bracket and bushings it will ride even better..

It came with blueish colored lube to put on the bushing and the bracket. Also came with the round bushing to replace the sway bar links that go from the sway to the side of the frame. But I didn't replace any of those.

Also installed a rear trac bar, Koni shocks, and front sumosprings while i was under the RV. Bought rear Sumosprings too but can't install them myself with out removing the rear tires.
