You should be fine with the standard genuine Isuzu tow bar. The rear of the vehicle may be down a bit when fully loaded depending on weight of pop top. weight distribution in pop top is the key. You can fit heavy duty shockers (GAS) & air bags to rear suspension if needed for light vans. They go inside the rear spring coils. The Hayman Reece & sway bars will raise the rear & take weight off of the tow ball but this has not been tested by Isuzu & warranted. Sway bar hitch does not fit on the genuine Isuzu tow bar also. The best thing would be to talk to an Isuzu Dealer such as North East Isuzu Ute at Burton, Adelaide, South Australia to work out your best needs.

SOURCE: Front Left Sway Bar Link

The front stabilizer shaft (sometimes called a sway bar) is mounted to the top rear of the frame and to the lower control arm. The shaft is attached to the frame with clamps and rubber insulators and to the control arms with insulator links.

are you refering to the 5/16" bolt with 4 rubber bushings? 2 on each end? If so, cut them. Everything you need will come in kit. Bolts, bushings and sleeves.

Will a 2300kg hayman reece towbar from an au ute fit an au sedan,thanks


should do as the sub frame is the same
check with a tow bar fitting shop and remember you will need a modification plate attached when the tow bar is fitted
If you cannot be bothered with the mod plate then in the event of an accident your insurance is wiped and you could be charger under state laws
have the tow bar shop fit the unit , get the plate attached and get the wiring loom for the plug from them as well

Tow ball weight for 1998 105R SERIES LANDCRUISER toyota


most tow bar specifications state 300-400 kgs is the maximum weight allowed ( best if the toyota is a long wheel base )
if you have something heavy on the bar you should be using load lever stabilizer bars from the bar to the "A" frame of the towed unit
these effectively reduce the weight on the ball by transferring the load to the vans wheels and the toyota front wheels
they reduce sway from uneven roads and passing trucks, improve driving stability on the toyota and reduce the load on the toyota drive tires
you measure the tow ball weight by lifting on the ball coupling of the van
best talk with bar specialist fitting shops and retailers that sell van accessories
don't forget you are legally limited by the weight you can tow by the vehicle towing specifications and for most late vehicle that tops out at 3000kgs --early vehicles it is less than 2000kgs

I have just ordered a new caravan with a ball weight of 175kg. do I need a weight distribution hitch?


A question often ask and much disregarded
although the tow bar weight is within limits
the load distribution bars ( torque bars -stabilizer bars --sway bars etc) not only help distribute the load but act in such a way as to stop the trailer /caravan for developing the sway that tends to make the driver loose control at speed
they also , when properly adjusted, keep the ride height of the towing vehicle level and that improves stability
remember that although the bar weight is 175 kgs that amounts to a load of 525kgs over the rear axle or extra 525 kgs on the rear tires ( mass multiplied by distance from drive axle or rear wheels assuming the distance from the axle/tires to the tow ball is i meter---heavier if the bar is further back from the tires )
to use the distribution bars lifts that weight off the rear axle and places more of the load on the trailer wheels
As a result the car / trailer combination is much safer to operate than without the bars

How do I prepare my Chevy Tahoe to pulll a travel trailer


Tow package Reece hitch with the right size ball, electric brakes with trailer wiring. Sway bar\'s stops trailer from swaying back & forth. The most important is to find out the tongue weight on trailer. If it\'s more than your Tahoe can handle you will need to put air bag\'s on your rear suspension to help support the weight. You will also need to check the tire load rating on your Tahoe\'s rear tires. You don\'t want a blow out going down the road! Goose neck trailer won\'t work period! Good luck!

Were you towed recently, or any damage? The rear ends of these cars are notorious for going out of alignment. Check bushings, sway bar links, wheel bearings for play, etc. any more info you give me can help me narrow it down.. Thanks, Dean
