Sorry, but that's incorrect. Perhaps you're referring to the P30/32 with their independent front suspension? I definitely have a front trac bar on my W22 Workhorse as I installed it myself. It's a Davis Tru Trac from Roadmaster.

I will bow to wolfe10 and CamJam's greater knowledge. I was under a Worhorse 8.1 chassis recently that had lower control arms.
I was going by some limited hands-on experience rather than an extensive knowledge of GM RV chassis. I had no idea W22's could have control arms OR a beam axle. I learned something today.

But in any case, if the front suspension is independent, no track bar needed or wanted. If the front is a beam axle consensus so far seems divided on whether it's needed or useful or not. Myself I would do a rear one and attend to sway bars before looking at a front track bar.

Hello all,
Thank you again for all your words of wisdom. Truly appreciated. Have ordered the rear trac bar. Will have installed and see how it goes before pursuing anything else. Will also have sway bar and bushings checked.
Take care. Be safe. Ending this thread.
