You're probably right. I would suggest he put a heavier one on.

Agreed, I did both front and rear plus bilstein shocks and it made a huge difference on my rig. Tire pressure is also important, I run 65 up front and 80 in the rear.

Roadmaster's Installed

I just had Roadmaster's front and rear anti-sway bars installed on my 2005 Forester and it made a HUGH difference. It's not perfect, but it made a big difference. Next I will put on the steering stablizer on.

I replaced the front and rear sway bars on my e450. I also put a Trac bar on and a safe t plus steering stabilizer. Those four things plus an alignment made a difference on my e450. Trucks still move me but I feel more planted.

On our new concord I put on safe t steer and tightened air bags up some and big difference. Start with your steering then drive a while. You can add to much at once and make your rig so stiff it handels bad. There is a lot of over kill on this thread. Any high profile vehicle will sway and they should. ( some )

one handed drive

I have no stock or ownership in this company,
Airtab.com

I have installed them on the rear of my 2501 and the 12 ft. trailer I tow... 70 miles an hour and very little tug when I pass them or they pass me.

I can comfortably drive with one hand though I don't recommend it.

definitely improves stability, but can't say much about mpg since I pull a trailer with two motorcycles......

Helwig front and rear sway bars, Bilstein steering stabilizer, front end alignment. May add track bar later. Sure handles a lot better now.

I think I see it in your second picture.
You might be right Torino. It was almost night when I took the picture and unfortunately I did not aim the camera high enough when taking the picture. I will have to go back later and look in the daylight.

This is actually the direction I am leaning. Alignment/caster change is done and am looking at upgrading the front/back sway bars with Hellwig units. And while the rear sway is off I will be adding a SuperSteer SS450 Trac Bar. At that point I will drive it the rest of this season and and if not satisfied will probably look to add a steering stabilizer (Safe-T-Plus?) before next season starts.
