Today we drove over to Monterey for a walk along the ocean. About 100 miles RT. Checked all the bolts with the torque wrench again and they were all tight. I'll check them again after a few more uses, but I'm guessing they won't move.

Side by Side photo comparison. The Hellwig is almost twice the thickness.

Just installed my Hellwig sway bar today. I like the ride a lot better. I did notice one thing odd though- the end link brackets seemed too big for the bar. The stock bar measured 4 cm wide while the Hellwig bushings measured 3.5cm leaving a gap in the end links.

I ended up using washers on the sides of the bushings to take up the extra space. Has anyone else had this experience? Anything to be concerned about? Should I take the washers out? I noticed a pop when I pulled in the driveway, but everything looked normal when I looked at it.

Same experience with wide shackles - also used washers - see my post #168 in this thread. No issues with washers over 5000+ miles.

Rear Sway Bar

Does anyone know if the model number that's been discussed here will work for a 2015 Solera 24R? The Hellwig product site doesn't go that new. Thanks in advance for any info.

As I replied to an earlier post, I have a 2012 Sprinter so can't answer your question. Suggest you contact Hellwig directly - they were quite responsive when I encountered a bolt issue with my sway bar. Contact Us | Hellwig Products

Just remember that the year of the coach is not necessarily the year of the chassis. It's the year of the chassis that counts for this application.

If memory serves me, the 10th position in your vin# designates the chassis year. Further I believe that the letter "C" = 2012 model year, So, "D" would be 2013, and so on. Let us know if that makes sense for your chassis mfg. date.

The Helwig bar is the right one for the 2014-24R MB 3500. Fit just fine. Improved the stability a bundle. Love the improvement.
