Hello,

I've been getting the "big bang" also. Stopped at my dealer and they said nothing was wrong. I contacted Hellwig and they said I need to grease the D bushings. Will let you know how this works. My bangs have been quite bad.

Or flip the bar over? Seems like someone here determined there was a small raised area or nub that is hard to notice, but the bar may not be two sided.

On initial installation I also got the clunk. I did a little aggressive cornering in left and right turns which seemed to allow the bar to center itself. After that no more clunk. That is also assuming the "D" brackets are proper greased and the slight dip in the bar is facing down toward the ground.

Just installed (2 ea) Bilstein 24-177702 4600 Series 46mm Monotube Rear Shock Absorbers. Took the 2013 Solera "S" for a spin around the block. The Helwig made the most difference in ride control. For those RV'ers that do not have/installed the Helwig sway bar is a "MUST BUY!" The Bilsteins greatly reduced the rocking motion and made a slight improvement in the ride. Anything to improve the ride I would buy, more later. GLTA

PS: Maybe Sumo's next when the price goes down!!

Hey Capt!

Did you do the installation yourself? If so, can you describe the process?

Thanks!

Dave

Just do it. You will never regret spending the $200 for it when driving thru crosswinds or just around town.
