Cheap Handling Fix

I have a 2008 Georgetown 370. I want to do the CHF on the front end. If the back set of holes on the sway bar are below the spring when all the weight is on the tires do I need to lengthen the drop arms? Even when I raise the front end right now the bolts will not interfere with the springs. The head of the bolts clear the spring by at least an inch. This is a great forum. If you can't learn it hear you won't learn it!

Cheap Handling Fix

I have a 2013 378ts with a 24,000 lb chassis and I did the CHF without changing the brackets. I have had no issues with the fix. I did the front and rear. I did call Ford chassis engineering and they said that was what the extra holes in the sway bars were for and longer sway bar to frame Rods were not needed.

I have done the rear and that helped the swaying a lot and I have not done the front since others say that the bolts will hit the leaf springs. Mine drives much better since the rear has been done but wondering how many others have accomplished the front with out hitting the springs when leveling.. Thanks in Advance..

When you level does you front sway bar hit the front leaf springs?

Thanks and has anyone else had any issues of the sway bar hitting the front leaf springs when leveling. Looks like I may do the front before our trip to Florida.

When I level my motohome the sway bar does come in contact with the spring but does not affect anything.
