Coach listing to the right.

I have a 1999 National Seaview on a F-53 chassis. I noticed it starting to list to the right a few months ago and it has been getting progressively worse with noticeable difference in the clearance of the right rear vs. left rear tires of almost 3 inches. (Pictures attached.) Upon inspection I noticed the rear suspension stabilizer bar bushings are bad and the right is much worse than the left. This appear to be an easy fix so my question is, will this solve the listing problem or do I need to look further?

Thank you!

I'd suggest consulting a suspension expert. Your coach is fairly old and could need an overhaul not a quick fix.

No, this repair will not correct the problem, The bar you mention, is used to "Stabilize" the Coach during travel.
I would take a good look at the spring's and all the equipment that attaches them to the frame. The spring(s) on the low side, might just of met is life span holding up all that weight..........
Take a close look at the "Arch" of both sides and see if one on the lower side is a lot flatter across the top of it. Take a good look at the spring mounts/hangers.

You would also want to check the front springs and suspension components.

The MH body is pretty rigid, so if the rear corner is down, something in the front would be up.

Thank you, I suspected as much. I've made an appointment with a suspension guy to evaluate front and rear suspension systems.
