Took JeNNY for a drive today, about 20 miles. Now that the rear sway bar is back bolted to the rear axle and the CHF is done to both the front and rear sway bars JeNNY drove really good. Curves signed at 45mph were taken at 55mph no problem. Much improved driving with the CHF.

Hello All, the CHF significantly improved the handling, my Wife (a born skeptic), even she made unprompted positive comments on it, we went on a short hop to Ludington, MI, which is very nice destination

You might want to send a PM to WGFR3 rather than posting your email address. A site team member can fix that for you.

Doing CHF, found missing sway bar bracket

I just completed the front modification and was going to do the rear. What I found was that the passenger side sway bar bracket on the axle was missing and the grommet was out of position. I have ordered parts to replace, but was wondering how many others have found this condition. I know Wayne and Sherry did on Jenny and I believe at least one other had it on the driver's side.
I'm trying to add a photo, but not sure if it did.

Hey dutiful Don, happened to me also. Found my bracket hanging from bottom bolt, bent out of shape from sway bar banging on it. Discovered 6 months into ownership when checking on leak underneath coach. Replaced myself as I just didn't want to deal with Ford on it. About $20.00 for the bracket and bolts. Also checked the other side and found top bolt loose.

I sent a note to Bryan Knight, the warranty guy at FR for FR3, along with my photo and statement that I was not the only one with this issue. He said he had not heard of it, but would let his boss know.
