Don't know of one personally, but Hellwig makes one to fit. - check their website. Should help any chassis vs the stock sway bar.

Caution mounting bolts were not correct pitch

Just install my rear bar. The 4 socket headed cap screws were not the correct pitch. They were 1.25 mm not 1.5 mm as needed for my 2012 MB chassis. So I had to purchase new bolts. Good news new sway bar is great improved. Now I need to test in a cross wind.

X2 on wrong thread on supplied bolts. Helwig replaced mine - used the contact e-mail link on their website.

Cross wind is the "proof of the pudding" - you'll be amazed at the difference. Curious why some of these come with wrong thread bolts - wonder if MB has changed the thread count somewhere in there product history. Mine were threaded correctly, and installed without any snafu at all.

Per Voicemail from Helwig, their vendor supplied them the wrong bolts.

When I installed mine I got one cross threaded had to put one of the old bolts back in to rethread it, worked out in the end. While going through Neb. last week I could feel the wind against the MH but not like before. BIG improvement.

We got the wrong bolts too. Had to put the old one back on but the shop setting up my rubicon jeep for towing came up with a solution since I was leaving for a trip up the coast the next day.
Big difference and really improved the handling on curvy mountain roads

I installed mine about a week ago and it works great. However, I had to make a run to Ace Hardware for the correct bolts. Helwig sent three of the round hex head bolts with too tight of pattern and one standard head bolt with the correct pattern. I contacted Hellwig last week and they have said they are investigating and haven't heard back yet.
