Husky sway bar

Well on our way back from a camping trip today, we managed to break off a piece of the WDH where the little ball hooks up to the sway bar connector (yes its a cheap product). I've done a search on this forum, came to the conclusion that we had apparently put it on too tight and it doesn't like curvy mountain roads.

That being said, can I still use the WDH and add a different sway bar to the other side or I need a whole new set up?

I believe that most of these WD hitches are set up for up to 2 sway bars. So, I don't see why you couldn't use the other side.

Contact Husky, and tell them what happened. You should be able to replace the broken part, and press on with your adventures. I wouldn't think you need a whole new hitch.

If you still have the pc, a good reputable welding shop can repair it. The wdh hitch heads are usually cast or forged steel and can be welded.

No sorry I don't, that part is somewhere between the campground and home, over a 160 miles of road way. Can a Reese dual cam be added with current bars and hitch?

Yes, u can put sway on either side. ...but a call to husky should have you fixed up ...did the ball come off the trailer frame or the hitch head?... its nearly impossible to tightnen the friction pads TOO much, more than likely the ball was mounted too close and is hitting the sway arm on tight turns....

That being said I dont know of any of the husky parts being compatible wirh a dual cam...it uses diff head, arms, and chain....
