On my 2012 Ford F350 I installed a RoadMaster Sway Bar which help reduce the Sway but Im looking into shopping / research to adding larger spacers to engage the Overload Springs earlier. I have the 500# Airbags which I usually air to 20lbs and the Overloads are just slightly engaged. I know about the TorkLift Spacers but my questions is has anyone installed the Super Sway Stops? I like the option of the Spacer that can be removed for adjustment if needed. Thanks in advance for input.

I have the SSS-2 installed on my 02 f350, they do a good job combined in the airbags.

I’m sure they’ll do just fine.
Another option if your crafty and don’t want to spend $150 is hockey pucks.

Timbrens or Sumo Super Springs wcan make a surprising difference.

I have a set of Timbrens that I used when I pulled a 13,000# 5th Wheel and I went with the Air Bags to even the load with the Camper. Yes Timbrens are good but not so when there's 1.5" difference from side to side. Thanks for your input.

Oregun, do you have the added 1” spacer on the SSS-2 and do you leave the Stops in place with your Camper off the Truck.

I bought my truck with the torklift upper stableloads(which are pretty much the same thing) already installed and a few months ago installed the lower stableloads and my porpoising is completely gone, sway is pretty much non existent too. washboard roads aren't a big deal anymore either.

I was very surprised how well such a simple solution worked. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get them.

I put hockey pucks on my dually even I did not need them
3rd seasons and they still hold, although show some wear. Might need to replace them after 5 years for whooping $8 material cost.... or was it 12 bucks??
