Hello all

I have been searching all over the internet and made a few calls to see how much I can get a set of front and rear track bar for a 99 Freightliner xc chassis. Called a local dealer here in Edison NJ and got a price of $315 for the rear and $425 for the front
I can't belive that it cost that much. Since the track bar on the f450 I can get shipped for under 100. I have done tons of jeep lifts and they are at most 400 something and they are adjustable and super heavy duty.
I am not sure if I want to cough up that much or just make my own.
Does anyone know where I can get them for a decent price.

Thanks

I bought the front from Houston Freightliner off the discount parts list at the suggestion of a member here. Like $165 delivered to SoCal.

The rear is still hard to find at a price I can afford.

I want to know why both of mine had destroyed bushings after only 34K miles.

Thanks for the info. I will give FH a call to see if they still have that deal. If they don't I am going to see if the F450 trac bar will fit.

I just tried www.hendersonslineup.com they don't seem to have it for the freightliner.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but my Freightliner chassis already has trac bars front and rear as standard equipment. The Holiday Rambler build date is 06/99.

Thanks for the link. With the material sheet and where to get them, makes the task much easier. Very good write up. I am also exploring the option of using the adjustable track bar from an f350 and the rear lower control arm from a jk wrangler. The dimension seems to fit. I just need to give it a test run. If this work, I can get both parts for under 300 shipped and they come with heim joints and are super heavy duty for off road use so should work.
