Klunk sound in MBS chassis on slow turns

I posted this over in the Running Gear tech forum. Please post any ideas there. Thanks!

Arm chair diagnosis?

If you have the Hellwig sway bar, I would think the RV dealer would need to take care of it.

The are sending me to the MB repair shop since it's chassis. I hope it isn't a turf war.

Thanks - very helpful! I'll alert the mechanic to check for this. Seems to fit the bill since it clunks hard but doesn't break.

Not sure but, isn't the Hellwig an FR install at their factory. If so, MB will most likely charge you for work performed that should be an FR dealer issue, since it's an upgrade outside the OEM swaybar fitted at the Sprinter factory. Just sayin'

Kindly click here a similar issue was raised on the other thread, and I responded there. The dealer have the MB serve shop do the work. This thread was intended as an informational cross-reference post. Thanks!

This was intended as a post to cross-link to the post on this topic in the wheels/axles/chassis forum, not to start a second discussion tread. I asked from the first post here to post any comments on the other thread. See post #1. I tried to be clear. I appreciate all comments and apologize if that was not clear.

P.S.: that earlier message should have read: The dealer *will* have the MB *service* shop do the work.
