Anti-sway bars

Is there an easy way to attach this bar?  Every time I go to attach it, I seem to spend too much time jockeying the truck in all different directions (inches at a time) to get the bar onto the hitch.

The anti-sway bar that I'm using attachs first to the trailer then to a small ball on the hitch.

Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Steve,

The anti sway bar should be adjustable in length.  I release the tension on mine, put it over both balls (Hitch and Trailer), put the retaining pins in and then re-tension the anti sway bar.  Never have to move the truck.  You do have to attach it with the truck straight in front of the trailer so it is tightened for its towing position.  Also be aware that you should never back up and turn the trailer as backing up at an angle will bend the anti sway bar.

Thanks for sharing this information dude. I am trying to adjust my sway bar buy but bad luck is moving on my side at that time.
