I installed a sway bar on our 2000 Chevy 3500 MH. We live in a very windy area with 30-60 mph winds common. We also run lots of corners and our 2 lane roads often have no Shoulder with long drop off beside them. The sway bar made it corner better and also get rid of the lean from the wind. Just trashed the track bars that were on it as they were of no help to us where we live and run..
I got mine here.. It fit very well and was a simple install I did alone.
Yes my fuel tank is. The bar makes a dip down to go under it.. Lots of clearance. My Chevy has the rear springs by Mor-Ryde Suspension. Designed for the load of the rig. So had no need for the track bars. So very little spring flex like the Fords that often need more leafs and track bars..
Hope you have as much improvement as I did.. I used a floor jack to help hold it as I installed it.
We spent most of our money traveling... Just wasted the rest..
OK the information I gave you on the bar was wrong. Did it a long while back and remember the bend area in the bar.. But the bar is mounted low on the rear end and the bend goes out around the rear end. It hugs the rear end so ends up forward and much below the fuel tank.. So see how memories work?? Its parked in my front yard and we are starting to load it for our next trip. So took a look after thinking about what I said before.
You will also have to turn the bolts holding the lower shocks around as I remember..
Used the same brand and supplier for front and rear bars on our Ford. Supplier was helpful when I called, and I was also to get the brand (Hellwig) install instructions before I decided to order.
I had an issue with rear shock bolts on either the Hellwig Sway Bar or the BlueOx Track Bar, I forget which. Install of the Sway Bar was straightforward. Even the weight of the bar wasn't a problem. I slid it under on a box and that got it high enough to attach one end to the axle. Then the other end at the axle and from there the frame ends were easy.
This isn't about the Track Bar, but I called BlueOx and they had the bar expert (actually the bar designer) call me. A couple tips from him got me on on track, so to speak.
