    My rv had the extra brackets on both front and rear endlinks. I decided not to simply use the original end links because it made the front brackets unusable with the new angle of the sway bar. The rear would work but I read it's best to keep the sway bar at the original angle, this means you need longer end links. I bought Hellwig adjustable end links. I can keep the same angle of the sway bar and used my brackets which are not on all rv's but I can see their value. Also if you use the same short endlinks the wheels will lift off the ground sooner when using jacks

    Hi question about the “cheap handling fix”. Did you do this yourself? If so was it difficult or easy? I am a DIYer and mechanically inclined.

    Hello Mr McKinley, I am new to this forum and also to RVing. I was given your name in reference to a post I made RV.net. I have a problem with a very rough ride in my 1999 Fleetwood Flair. It only had 24k miles on it when I got it, and now at 31k. I foud the shocks completely depleted of any gas what-so-ever, and during the changing of them, I noticed that my forward leafesprings were absolutly flat when whieght was on wheels. The reason I'm contacting you is that I seem to be having a bit of trouble finding your post "Cheap handeling fix", and do you think it would help me. Thank you for your time on this.

    Wow! Over 40,000 hits on your modification so far.
    I sincerely hope that Ford Engineers are contacting you. (They usually don't like being told how to do something but in your case you deserve credit)
