Weight Distribution with Sway Control and Transmission Cooler Recommendation for 1998 Ford F150 4.6L


i just purchased a 1987 21ft sunline camper. TW 350 lbs, dry3040, gtw4400lbs.what do you recommend for weight dist and sway control. 1998 ford f150 4.6 V8.Do you also recommend a bigger trans cooler than the little 2 coil thats on the truck.


Expert Reply:

The Strait-Line Weight Distribution with Sway Control, part # RP66072, you referenced would work very well as a weight distribution and sway control system for pulling your 1987 21 foot Sunline Camper with your 1998 Ford F150. I have included a link below to installation instructions and an FAQ page that you might find helpful.

I would strongly recommend you upgrade your transmission cooler also. I would recommend the Derale Transmission Coolers for the 1998 F-150 and F-250 Light Duty by Ford, part # D12904. This should keep your transmission temperature at a safe level and, in doing so prolong the life of your transmission.

You will also need a Derale Radiator Adapter Fittings for Ford and Lincoln, part # D13024 to quickly and easily install the # D12904 onto your F150.
