Anti sway bar bushings on a P 30 chassis Airstream Argosy

Ok, this one is probably an obvious one. I need new rear anti sway bar bushings. I am writing this one in hopes of helping others by bringing attention to all of you to check your rear sway bar. front one too. I will give credit here to my friend Greg Blue. Fireman and Airstream expert from southern Florida. 

I noticed my Airstream Argosy motor coach seems to sway to much in the butt. Side to side sway as in a top heavy feel. I just installed new Air springs in the front and this firmed up my front end which brought an obvious feeling of how loose the back of the motor coach feels. So, Greg told me to look at my rear sway bar bushings. 

Well, it doesn't take and expert to see from my picture here that my bushings are shot. In fact, you can see from the picture that the sway bar link has been stressed to a bending point. Can you guess what I will be replacing today ? Any of you with a P 30 / P32 chassis, take a look at your rear sway bar. In my opinion, this type of situation raises a risk of over sway. I will not drive my Airstream until I replace these.

Jeff, thanks for the heads up and reminder; all of us with classy class A's and C's should occasionally check bushings and most other things under the rig.  Your photo really helped. The bending is kind of "spooky".   thanks again.
