Default Right steer suspension issue

When I bought my coach back in April of this year it kinda made a clink, clink, clink sound sometimes when I would make a hard left and weight shifted to the right front tire. On the way to WOG last week I had to make a hard left on uneven roadway and the clinking was much more like CLANK CLANK CLANK. I finally remembered to scoot under there to take a look around this afternoon. I'm guessing what I found in the attached pic isn't quite right. I'm at WOG in site 37 if you need a better look.

That happened to my Ford exploder with 220K recently. I got on the Orielys website and looked at their selection. They actually have a lot available. Maybe they will have something you can make work.

I don't think I want to remove the sway bar. I've read all the post where others have done so. I like the way my coach handles (I don't know any better) and I'm in the camp of if it was installed at a cost, there was a reason. I also have one of those safe-t-steer things under there. Why bother rendering that moot as well. Does anyone have a vendor or part number(s) for what I need to replace? Thanks for the O'Reilly's tip Max, however, I don't think I know exactly what I would be searching for size wise.

Look on the other side. The way it is attached on one side should be the same on the other. Have you looked?

I did look. From my cramped vantage point this morning the two sides are not similar. I'll run the jack up on the left side in the morning and have a closer look though.
