Roadmaster Anti-Sway Bar Installed

Benefits of an Anti-Sway System

The Roadmaster anti-sway bar does for side-to-side movement what a good pair of shocks does for up-and-down motion. You will notice a marked improvement in your vehicle's stability as the bar works to balance weight transfer and reduce body roll. The anti-sway bar acts as a link between your vehicle's frame and its rear axle, using the axle as a brace to more effectively balance the shifting weight of your vehicle as you maneuver it. Lubricated bushings allow just enough pivot and rotation to compensate for the pressure placed on one side of your vehicle when it goes into sudden maneuvers, hits crosswinds or encounters shifting weights.


Roadmaster Anti-Sway Polyurethane Bushings

Superior Construction

The Roadmaster anti-sway bar is made of 4140 chromoly, a chromium and molybdenum steel alloy. This type of steel is considerably harder and stronger than the standard 1020 steel that is typically used in anti-sway applications. In addition, the larger diameter of the bar increases its torsional roll stiffness. The result is a bar that is not only stronger than the competition, but also nearly 30 percent better at resisting sway. The polyurethane bushings and grommets used at the attachment points are durable yet flexible, ensuring that the system is neither so rigid nor so malleable that it becomes ineffective.

The sway bar is high quality compared to the oem bar. I have a 2020 MBZ 2500 Sprinter 144. Basically, the roadmaster is three time the factory bar in terms of weight. And it shows. I took it on a ride down some winding roads and sharp turns and the back end feels much stiffer which equals control. I travel alot on Socal freeways to get to my destinations and it was very unnerving when driving next or passing freight trucks. I also pass through valleys and the winds can really making driving a bit uneasy. So, I anticipate this mod will add to my comfort level as well as my passengers. Time will tell. Now for some thing negative, well not quite but still some information buyers will need to know about installation. My van came with endlinks that were not compatible with the roadmaster. I knew this and order a set of end links for a 2019 model. Be aware that you will need new end links if you want to fit this bar to your 2020 model. At least that was the case for me. See pics. Overall, I'm satisfied and the cost is definitely worth the peace of mind.

Exact fit for my Dodge Sprinter 2500 170wb with single rear tire. Complete with instructions and hardware.


Comments
The product is definitely an upgrade from the factory one. It made a huge improvement on my sprinter 2500 170 ext handling and cross wind esp when passed by a semi at hway speeds
Bel - 11/17/2022


by:

The stock rear sway bar is pencil thin, after the very easy install the Van
was void of rocking passing trucks and swaying in driveways. My wife even commented on the ride improvement. Well worth the cost, with the shock upgrade and large tires the Van handles very well.

I have a sprinter 144 adventure van conversion with alot of weight up high the bar made it a lot less scary in a cross wind

Sway bar was easy to install and helped the handle of the Sprinter when driving with cross winds

Etrailer has their act together. Great website to find what you’re looking for - really fast shipping- low prices on quality merchandise. Good after the sale service. I’m sold.

The roadmaster sway bar for my mercedes sprinter was a perfect retro fit and very easy to install. Description and instructions were spot on. Excellent purchase and customer service. Two thumbs up

2011 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

The product arrived quickly and complete from etrailer. I had these installed on my 2011 Sprinter 2500 144" about a year ago by a regional tire store. Seems like they charged me an hours labor, maybe a bit more. At first they were a bit tentative about installing someone else's product, but once they saw it, they said no problem. I remember them saying it was really straightforward with no unexpected challenges.
Huge improvement. I didn't think it would make that much of a difference, but I noticed it immediately driving out of the mechanic's parking onto the street. The old rocking after crossing uneven ground is gone, but it's not too abrupt, either. I think it makes highway driving better as well but maybe that's my imagination. I've put on almost 20k miles since, and no complaints. Considering the many modifications and upgrades I've done since buying this Sprinter new, this is probably the best bang for my buck so far. Should have done it earlier, but I appreciate it more now, I suppose...

Ordered on Monday and received on Friday. Installed on Saturday. No problem other than I had to trim the urethane bushings with a razor blade so hanger bar would fit over the sway bar end. Etrailer did an excellent job.


Comments
Bar made major improvement. Reduced understeer. Sold van and bought Ford Transit. Do not think Ford will require any suspension changes. It is already a much better handling van than the Sprinter.

2014 sprinter 2500 sway bar install , Being a non-mechanic the sway bar went in without a hitch probably took me a little over an hour to take the old one off and re-place it with the new one, I used two straps over the sprinter axle to hole the sway bar in place while I bolted it in. It definitely made the ride more stable though I still have to replace the rear shocks which will certainly also help , great product great service thanks

anti sway bar delivered, service was very good, anti-sway bar looks to be of excellent quality




by:
2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

This is a great product and have used it on my motorhome before, road master sway bar replaces little stock sway bar and mounts in stock sway bar area, unlike hellwig sway bar that uses brackets on axle and slides out of original place, spend a little more and only buy roadmaster sway bars you will not regret it! Also Etrailer was fast in shipping and instal was really easy only took 25min!




by:
2008 Dodge Sprinter

Another great product from etrailer. Bolted right on to my Sprinter 2500 144wb. Would be good if etrailer could show the instructions as one of the photos for the product so you know what you have to do before it arrives. This sway bar is a huge difference over the stock and was noticeable within 50' of driving the sprinter. One of the best mods you can make to your sprinter from a handling point.




by:
Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

It really helped reduce the sway in my high top Sprinter Van. Also changed the stock Helper springs to sumo brand ones.




by:
2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

1. The install was pretty straightforward, it took me a little over an hour doing it myself. I went for a test drive an notice a major different in the ride, but the real test was when the wife said she not on a roller coaster ride. If you are looking to improve your Sprinter sway i would highly recommend this item.




by:
2012 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

This is a must for my 12 passenger Sprinter. It helps reduce the effects of wind and of passing semi trucks on interstate highways. Helpful installation tip: you need to be on a level surface to install it.

Great fit. Big difference.

Only put about 2500 road miles on the vehicle. Go hit with 25 to 30 mph winds. And didn't even notice them. Handles great. Thank you

  • Rear Anti-Sway Bar from Roadmaster for a 2017 Mercedes-Benz 2500
    For an Anti-Sway bar from Roadmaster that is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 you will need part # RM-1209-128. Keep in mind that this is an upgrade to a pre-existing OEM anti-sway bar so if none is present you will also need to install part # RM-1209-128.

  • Rear Sway Bar Recommendation for 2015 Mercedes Benz Sprinter Class C Chassis Pleasure Way
    The difference between the two Roadmaster sway bars is the specific 2015 Mercedes Sprinter you have. The part # RM-1209-128 is for the 2500 van and cutaway models but yours is the 3500 Class C model so the rear sway bar is the part # RM-1209-131. At this time there isn't a front sway bar available, but the rear sway bar is the one that makes the biggest difference so the one I recommended would still be a great option to improve your ride quality.

It allows your suspension to compress some so as not to have too much of an effect on the unloaded ride quality.
