We have the 2017 Vegas 24.1 (E350) and I am looking for the part numbers I have it for the front SSF-106-47 but not finding the correct ones for the rear.
What did you install?
Also looking at the Hellwig sway bars for front and back has anyone replaced their sway bars (E350)?
Thanks for the help!

Part # is SSR-130-47 for 1500lbs and SSR-130-54 for 2800lbs ($306.50). I'm going with the bump stop replacement because I can install them myself.

Yes, we are happy with the results.

On turns, I see no difference but I don't corner like I'm in a sports car. Steering with semi passing no difference I can tell but it's not a problem. Ran into gushing winds and don't see any difference. So they worked great for bouncing problem period.
x2. just installed and test ride with same results

Jb1911, I see you installed the SSR-130-XX on the rear. Which did you go with, SSR-130-47 or SSR-130-54? What kind of improvements have you noticed since installing the rears?

I went with the SSR-130-47 and I'm glad I did. They are a little stiff. The 54s would have been a mistake. The tipping on turns is much improved but the ride is a bit rougher. I would recommend to anyone to just do the front and forget the rears.
