It probably is, if you look at the sprinter chassis itself it's probably a 2012 or 13. I have a 2013 Solera but the chassis is a 2011 Sprinter. Something to remember if you go to have it worked on.

I did a bit more looking, seems I was only off by a few bucks at A**Z**. It appears the wrong bolt issue may have solved, I may have to see just how difficult the swap out will be. Thanks a bunch for the reply.

The swap doesn't take long as in other threads it takes about 1-2 hours, pretty easy to do. I used a couple of large wood clamps to hold the bar in place while I bolted it in down.

Swap-out is a snap. Six bolts to remove, hang the new sway bar, and reinstall six bolts! Helps if you've got some sort of ramps you can back onto to get room to work under the chassis, but you can do it without, it'll just be cramped under there! If you have your tools etc. ready, it'll take a little over an hour. Most of us have had to run out and buy a 10mm star socket to fit the bolts, and you'll need a torque wrench if you don't have one.

Knowing what I know now, I would NEVER drive a Solera again without the Hellwig.

Swede, my 2013 24R is built on an 8-2012 chassis. The sway bar fits great. Larry

Our 2014 Solera that we just got a month ago is mounted on a 2013 chassis and the same sway bar works great.

I just broke down and order the sway bar also, will be here Friday. The peer pressure was just to much!!!!
We'll be driving to Ouray in September to a Jeep Jamboree. Sure we'll get plenty of wind getting out of Oklahoma.
Putting a lot of trust in you fellow Solera owners.
