Tools Needed for Sway Bar Quick Fix

I'm planning on doing the sway bar quick fix but my MH is parked at a storage lot. Our driveway is too steep to drive the MH up so I'll have to do this at the storage lot. Can anyone tell me which tools I will need to do this? I don't want to drive back and forth because I have the wrong size wrench.

a must for FR3 owners 100% handling improvement.
just move front sway bar link to inboard holes on sway bar, than repeat on rear which has two bolts per side on rear bracket spins a round. no more wind blowing you off road.

Boy looking at the Minnesota weather for the next week or so looks cold!! It may be a few weeks before I get out to look at the sway bar links on JeNNY. Any one have and before and after pics of the sway bar links from out board to in board? I'd sure like to see some if anyone's got any.

Used a 18mm and 15mm for the bolts. A small jack came in handy to line up the holes. Will test it out later this week.

When our DS30 was in for service I asked the dealer about the CHF. They didn't know about it, which surprised me. I explained adjusting the ford sway bar was improving them handling and asked them to look at adjusting the sway bar since they were preforming a oil change and Lube. When I arrived after the service they said that my DS 30 does not have sway bars. I have not looked my self since parking it in storage. Could it be possible this 6 month old DS30'does not have sway bars ?

Every one I've seen has a front and rear sway bar. Was this a RV dealer, or Ford? I'd be looking for a new dealer (lol). But then you need to realize that RV dealers do not work on the chassis. Just the coach. But still, they should know.

Ford Chassis Fron and Rear Sway bars

Class_A_brochure_2013_LoRes.pdf

Take a look at the attachment, The front and rear sway bars(Stabilizer bars) are listed. The attached is for year 2013 chassis, you can probably find the same for 2012 or 2014 chassis. My FR3-30 is 2014 and I have them on mine.
