I am looking for someone to either help me install one on my 2015 F350 or a mechanic that has a reasonable charge for this. My local mechanic quotes a very expensive price for what I understand to be about a 2 hour job. I am in the Denver area. Thanks for any suggestions.

I would have done it for you for a beer had I live near you.

Go over the list of your friends who is half mechanically inclined -- or simply handy and give him a call.

It's not difficult nor complicated.

I just installed a Hellwig big wig rear sway bar on my truck 2006 F350 last week. This is a very very easy job to do.
Im older, near 70 and it took me maybe an hour to pull the old one off, and replace it with the new one. The biggest problem was reaching one bolt.
Im quite a ways from you, or I would be happy to help you with it.

If you have a diesel you have to partially move the def tank to get access, the rest is pretty easy.

Denver Spring has been reasonable in the past.

I have a 2015 Chevy 2500 HD four door, long bed, 4X4.
Northstar Arrow 8.5 camper.

I am 65 years old and I installed my Hellwig Bigwig in 2 hours by myself.
Everything fit perfectly.
The directions suggested removing the spare tire to ease installation but I didn't do it.
I didn't need to. It wasn't in the way.

I'm not a mechanic but I can followed directions. That worked.

It made a huge difference in the sway I was experiencing. I do get a rougher ride without the camper though but I can live with that.

Sue, does your F350 have a rear swaybar now and is it a dually?

GeoBoy, it is single and no I do not have a sway bar in the rear. I do have one in the front.
