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.

Video Transcript for Roadmaster Rear Anti-Sway Bar Review

Hey there, heavy haulers. Today, we're going to take a look at the Roadmaster Rear Anti-sway Bar for Trucks. You can use our fit guide to find the right sway bar for your truck. This is what our sway bar looks like when it's installed. You can tell that it's significantly larger than our factory sway bar. This is what our old sway bar used to look like right here.

There's just really no comparison on how much thicker and stronger this sway bar is. This one here, I can't bend whatsoever. This guy, it was providing some support and I know I'm pushing it together, which really isn't how sway bars work. They work in a twisting motion, but this one is significantly smaller and is going to provide not nearly as much anti-sway as our stronger, larger bar here.The main purpose of upgrading to a larger sway bar like this is to help minimize sway. As you're going down the road and you make turns or evasive maneuvers, the body wants to roll.

As that rolls, it kind of throws you around in the cabin and makes it more difficult to maintain control of the vehicle. Also, when it sways, it shifts weight in a direction which could cause the vehicle to start to pull or slide in that direction. By minimizing the sway, it just helps stabilize the vehicle and provide you with more control and stability. Having a larger bar here is going to do just that for you.Also in this kit, you're going to receive new bushings, shackles, and hardware. So if you've got an old sway bar that's just got worn out bushings and you're looking to just repair it and you're wanting to upgrade it to have less sway, to be able to haul heavier items without feeling it throwing your truck around when you're going around those turns, this kit comes with all those components too.Let's go ahead and get a baseline measurement and we're going to hit the test course with our factory sway bar on there.

First, we're going to be in the bump section, which is going to simulate a pothole. The rear end does make quite a bit of noise and it doesn't feel that tight. There's a lot of back and forth rocking going on. Lastly, we're going to be going into our slalom section and this is going to simulate an evasive maneuver. On our slalom course, you can really feel how loose the truck is as we weave back and forth.

It's honestly a little scary to drive this, performing these big evasive maneuvers, so I can only imagine what it would be like if our truck bed was fully loaded.Now that we've got the new sway bar installed, I'm going to go ahead and take it out on the test course and we're going to see how it compared with our factory results. First, we're going to be in the bump section, and as we go over these bumps, we can definitely tell there is less rocking back and forth. It does seem to stiffen the vehicle up a little bit, so if you're concerned about having a smoother ride, this isn't really going to make it smoother, but this is really designed for those guys hauling heavy equipment so it's going to be more beneficial for them. Next we're going to be heading into our slalom section, and this is going to simulate an evasive maneuver. During this section, this is where I expect to see the biggest improvements as our sway bar is considerably larger than our old ones. So when we head up here, we're going to go ahead and start ripping her back and forth. Oh yeah, it definitely . wow, it really grips pretty good. It's actually pretty fun to drive. Considerable improvements over your factory components.In the end, upgrading your truck's rear anti-sway bar lets you execute turns and quick maneuvers with confidence, while reducing driver fatigue and minimizing the effort required to keep your vehicle in line due to crosswinds, passing motorists, and large shifting cargo. The 4140 chromiley 00:03:32 steel is going to be considerably harder and stronger than your factory installed sway bar. If you're concerned about up and down motion or your vehicle sagging down in the back, I suggest upgraded jounce bumpers or a set of airbags. That completes our look at the Roadmaster Rear Anti-sway Bar for Trucks.

Excellent. Truck corners much flatter when
Cornering hills in WVA or PA.

I have a 2017 Ford F350 Super Duty SRW, and we haul a heavy truck camper (Lance 1055.) I have Stable Load Uppers and HD airbags, but wanted to add a sway bar to add that extra layer of control, even though my truck has handled the camper well over the last 2 years and 10,000 miles. My truck did not come with an OEM sway bar installed, so I needed this kit that included the End Links too.

The Roadmaster Rear Sway Bar and End Links sold on etrailer are top quality products. They are robust and well made, with quality hardware to match. The product deserves a 5-star, and even unloaded, my truck handling improved right after installation, with improved cornering and no real impact on ride quality in my opinion. I have not yet loaded up our camper or towed our boat, but I have no doubt this sway bar will substantially reduce sway and will improve control and handling when the camper is loaded.

So why 4 stars and not 5?

1. I researched this product and the installation in detail. I planned on installing it myself and expected to find plenty of detail on etrailer's site, or Roadmaster's site, or the internet. My most pressing question was about where to mount the end links, and the orientation of the sway bar arms since I wouldn't be using the OEM end links. That information was no where to be found on the etrailer site, Roadmaster's site, or in any installation manuals. For a product and supplier that has likely sold lots of these to Ford Super Duty owners, I was surprised to find how little info was out there. The installation video on the etrailer site was helpful, but did not include any information for the end links, as they had a 2015 Super Duty and used the OEM end links already installed. I contacted etrailer and they told me to contact Roadmaster for more info on where to locate the end links with this kit.

2. I contacted Roadmaster. They told me they had no instructions and that despite my truck already having the cut-outs for the OEM bracket that attaches the OEM end links to the frame, that none of those holes may work for me. So they suggested I connect the sway bar brackets to the axle first and then see where the arms would line up with the end links. The tech also suggested that it wasn't critical that the end links were perpendicular
to the frame, but that I should try install the end links to allow the arm of the sway bar to hand as close to parallel as possible. No bueno. When I installed this the 14" end links (center hole to center hole) didn't allow for the arms to hang parallel to the frame. And I don't think it matters as the orientation of my sway bar and the arms looks about like every video or picture I could find on the internet of this year/model truck and this sway bar kit. It seems to function fine.

3. Installing it was a bear, especially the way they instructed me to. And I had to make some modifications to fit my truck, as the sway bar arms were rubbing up against my airbag mounting brackets. I got it installed, but the thin instructions turned what should have been a 60 minute job into 2 1/2 hours. A bit frustrating.

All in all, this will do the job intended and will provide me with peace of mind next time we load our camper. I am a bit frustrated that there were zero installation instructions specific to my year/make/model of truck given it did not have an OEM sway bar and the end links had to be installed with a bit of guesswork. You will also note in my pictures that I had to mount the end links to the sway bar arms differently on each side to make the bar fit around my air bag mounts.



by:

Fairly easy install. Drilling the hole in the frame was decent started with a 17/64 pilot hole then the 17/32 final hole. Take your time and let the drill do the work.
Do be aware of the hole placement on the drivers side as there are brake lines and wiring there.



by:

This product arrived on time, and is as described in company literature. I have installed the sway bars and the sumo springs on my 2019 Ford E3 26 foot Thor motorhome. Installation is fairly straightforward. Having said that, I am a retired farmer and I am quite familiar with this type of work. Having the proper tools makes the job go much quicker and easier. Installation of the front sway bar took a little under an hour. The rear sway bar is a bit more complicated to install, but he can be easily accomplished by someone of average mechanical skills, equipped with the proper tools. I strongly recommend removing the rear wheels to facilitate installation of the springs and the sway bar. I have not driven my motorhome yet, but will be taking an extended trip in March. I am looking forward to an improved ride.



by:

All the contents were delivered in the package. The kit fit perfectly as designed. Ordered for a Ford F-350 Super Duty. Truck handles great!



by:

Was told from etrailer that this was going to be a quick plug and play but no this was to be installed on a class c ( no drilling) but no , ustraps had to be adjusted did not fit and struts would not reach had to drill chasis



by:

Solid-built sway bar. Helps stabilize in wind while driving. Using on 2016 Thor Vegas 25.3 RV, notorious for suspension and driving issues. Using front anti-sway bar as well with Safe-T-Plus steering stabilizer.



by:

OH My! If you are thinking about getting one for your P32 wide body. Please don’t hesitate. It REALLY Works. Take the white knuckle effect out of driving. EASY installation! Easy Ordering from etrailer. Roger helped me get through the buying process and shipped to my house in 2 days! Thank You!!



by:

First, Eric was a great help throughout the purchasing and installation. I watched the tutorial numerous times and set up my tools. I bought a 3/4 inch torque wrench at Harbor Freight and a 4 ft galvanized pipe at Home Depot. I followed the instructions and the tutorial to the letter. The bar and mounting plates are heavy, so be very careful. This job isn't for a beginner, but if you are somewhat mechanically inclined, you can install it. The 300 Ft. Lbs torque of the 8 nuts took everything out of me. LOL...I adjusted the end links twice, and it leveled out great. Now, I will do a test run and see how it improves the handling of my motorhome. Its a 2022 Entegra Vision 29S.



by:

Very heavy duty sway bar. Using it on a 2016 Thor Vegas 25.3 RV. Much thicker than original and still holding up fine. Helps to stabilize in high winds and passing trucks. Also added the Safe-T-Plus stabilizer to keep wheels from wandering.



by:

I am happy to finally have the rear anti-sway bar installed. Noticed the difference right away. I will order the front anti-sway bar soon. I have the skills to install the anti-sway bar, but did not have the heavy tools to do the job. Paided a local shop 2hrs labour, well worth it.



by:

I watched your video on the installation of the rear sway bar which I found to be helpful. I used an adjustable strap to level the sway bar before aligning and drilling for the links. Looking forward to a road test soon. Thank You



by:

This sway bar is the real deal. Easy to follow instructions but I had it installed because I'm lazy. It took one hour labor



by:

Your installation video was helpful. The front bolts on the the hangers required heating to break them loose. The factory was generous with blue lock tite. I might add the front bolts require a 18mm socket. Looking forward for a road test. Thank You always



by:

Haven't opened the stabilizer bars but I did open the Sumo Springs and the Snap Pads. All seemed to be there in good condition.



by:

The sway bar is good quality and probably does help with the cornering and the wind buffing from the semi trucks on the freeway.
The negative side is the bolts supplied adapter kit were under sized diameter to the point of ratting when you walked back and forth in the camper. To correct the problem I had to drill the poorly punched holes in the shackle to a true 1/2" then purchase new bolts and lock nuts that fit the bushings. After all the labor and expenses the sway bar has worked as intended with no noise. The other thing I had not considered was how much traction you loose on uneven ground but that is the trade off with better highway control.



by:

This should have been original equipment.It ( 1995 Safari Trek) now drives like a completely different vehicle! I added Sumo Springs on the rear .These 2 items together are well the money. I installed both alone by myself (67 years young).



by:

I didn’t realize our motorhome had an OEM sway bar already installed which was left in place. Etrailer selected one for us that was heavier and more appropriate for our unit. Instructions were a bit to be desired but once installed made a world of difference. Their staff is very knowledgeable and didn’t try to sell me more than I needed. Thank you Etrailer.



by:

The antisway bar I purchased was relatively easy to install, and the service department was quick to respond to inquiries. It made a dramatic improvement in driving the motorhome, handling in wind, curves and semi truck winds was quite improved.



by:

This sway bar works great even with an 11-foot truck camper loaded on it.



by:

Replaced the anti-sway bar on our 2019 F350. No special tools or jacks needed for the installation. Now our Lance 850 truck camper doesn’t sway nearly as much as before. Big improvement. Very pleased!



by:

Installed sway using hand tools. Relatively easy install on a Class C Entegra Odyssey that sits on a Ford E-450 chassis. Unloading the rear is not required for install; however, raising the rear gives you more working room. Once installed, I noticed a marked improvement in reduced body lean going around corners. Front Sway Bar is next.



by:

Received the product in a timely manner. The shipping company used I’d give a no star rating. I received the anti-sway bar bare out of a box or wrapper with the installation part box and a cut out piece of cardboard with the shipping label on it taped to the bare bar with about five yards of packing tape. The bar was scuffed, scratched and chipped with the RoadMaster label destroyed. I realize it’s going to be installed under the front of my motorhome but as much as it costed I would like to be the one to scratch and scuff it. If I was a company installing this on a customers vehicle I’d return it. I do not believe it was shipped from etrailer in this condition.



by:

I purchased the Roadmaster Rear Anti-Sway Bar about a year ago. I have a 2016 F250 which did not come with an Anti-Sway bar. Why they come with one is crazy.
I have a Slide in Truck Camper and and it made a world of difference. With out it, it felt very rollie. My other truck I had the Hellwig anti-sway bar. It was ok, not as good as the Roadmaster. In my opinion.



by:

The last thing to upgrade my front suspension on my 2018 Winnebago Aspect 27k. Money well spent! Easy installation, the ride greatly improved. Etrailer shipped this fast and I'm very pleased. Thanks.

  • Best Way to Control Sway for 2010 Toyota Tundra That Has Anti-Sway Hitch
    Ok, so there's a couple of things you'll want to do first, and that's just make sure you check your tongue weight. You'll want to be somewhere between 10% and 15% to ensure your trailer is loaded properly and the weight is distributed evenly. Additionally, a trailer that is 10,000 lbs is very close to the upper capacity of your 2010 Toyota Tundra 4WD, and that truck towing a long 34 foot trailer with that much weight is going to cause some sway, even with a weight distribution system.

  • Will the Roadmaster Rear Anti-Sway Bar # RM-1189-102 Fit a 2012 Toyota Tundra 2WD
    I spoke with my contact at Roadmaster and he told me that the Roadmaster Rear Anti-Sway Bar, # RM-1189-102, should fit the 2WD as well as the 4WD models of the 2012 Toyota Tundra 5.7L V8, however, they have not tested the anti-sway bar on a 2WD model. He said, according to Toyota, the rear axle and suspension components are interchangeable between the 2WD and 4WD models, so there should be no fit issue. I have attached a link to the installation instructions for you to check out.
