Sway bar back in the bracket

photo of missing sway bar bracketThe parts (one bracket and two bolts) got here yesterday and the bus is now back in excellent operating condition. The parts had to come from Germany. It took about 10 minutes to put on.

I may add a spring leaf eventually – one leaf doesn’t look right to me. Of course it is as that is the way MB designed it but there are some ways to add a spring. I see the drive line shows oil/grease stains around the u-bolts. I hope this is because of the 40k maintenance.

  1. Hi,
    I have read your blog with great interest, agreement and amusement and came to find out you are in the greater Sacramento area. I have a 2007 Sportsmobile conversion from Fresno with 27k on it from trips from Washington to San Diego and East to Yellowstone.. My wife and I even make a few annual stealth camping trips to San Francisco!

    I was hoping I might contact you in the future via email about advice for my sprinter or vice versa. the sway bar sounds like a good idea since the western roads are notoriously windy.
    In the past I have had service at Folsom lake Dodge and they changed the oil for about 120 dollars and oil filter for 90, but I like to do it myself too and may be tempted by your experience with the fuel filter.

    My Espar diesel heater is a bit flukey and unreliable in keeping a steady temperature so hope yours is better.. since Sportsmobile is a bit of a haul down to Fresno, one needs to be a bit self sufficient in self repair so I look forward to chatting with you about your experience with such.. Thanks.
