Proper size wrenches and maybe a small bottle jack if the bar proves stubborn. I only did the front and it took me, maybe, fifteen minutes. World of difference in how she drives and I really recommend doing it!

Nope, not for ours. Just move the bolt holes. Talking front only though.

Thought about doing the rear but determined that it was not needed. The handling improved so much with just doing the front that I am satisfied and really comfortable driving the rig. Evan a significant improvement when driving in a cross wind. But it really depends on what will work for you. It depends on model which would determine length of overhang, weight distribution and other factors. I recommend you do the front then drive it for awhile and see if you think you need to do more.

I suggest you make a fairly long trip before jumping into mods. There is a lot of variation between models and how they handle. My 360 rides and handles fine without changing anything. After driving your coach under a variety of road conditions you will know one way or another. With mine I can lean back in my seat and drive the coach with just a light grip on the wheel and totally relaxed. No drift or sway, and only a light push from 18 wheelers. My previous FR had a much shorter wheel base, smaller wheels/tires, lighter overall weight and bounced around a lot especially on concrete roads with expansion joints. And a fast passing 18 wheeler would give me quite a push. And every pot, pan, dish and cup seemed to rattle in unison. I have a nice quiet smooth ride now. Except when I get numb towards the end of the day and drift over onto the "rumble" strips. Then the DW reaches over and slaps me up side the head to wake me up! haha Only verbally actually.

I got it. I will do the front and see how it goes. The 328 is 34 ft long so it is shorter than yours.

Thanks

I have the 351 DFS (35 footer) and was bouncing all over the place as well as wave feel like the "whale watch boat ride" for about 8 months.
I did the CHF and what a difference, for me I should have done it earlier. I did both front and rear.
