the trouble is I can't seem to find what fits.
I'm not sure what Mercedes Sprinter model the 2012 Solera is based on?
I see a sway bar from the Sprinter store that applies to a 3500 model sells for $700 - Yikes!
Can't tell if any other manufacture, like Hellwig, makes something that works. They refer to a 2007 - 2011 Dodge Sprinter 2500 that sells for $162, big difference!
So what sway bar goes on the 2012 Solera. or does one exist? I'm confused.
As a side light, the Mercedes site refers to a type of stabilizer that is supposed to address sway. Wonder if that is included on the Solera? if so, it's a weak solution.
I have a little more clarity on my sway bar confusion; There is a sway bar on my 2012 Solera; at the back of the rear axle. I was looking fro the forward-pointing version in the front of the rear axle. I believe this is the one that previous threads were talking about. DUHHHH. Any way, I ordered a Hellwig replacement for the factory's rear sway bar that is supposed to improve the handling. This is a 4140 steel that I guess will stiffen the flex response?
I'll let you know....
