62 safari hitch and sway bar hook up

almost ready for the maiden voyage but I cant figure out this sway bar attachment. Do these sway bars simply attach by the chains to the AS frame and then put a cotter pin in the holes to hold them there? Seems a little lightweight to me...and what's the spring loaded contraption. A little advice from experienced Streamers and I'll catch on
Any thoughts?

Thanks

I would go hitch shopping. The swinging brackets that take up the slack in the chains and transfers weight to the front wheels appear to be missing from the Airstream A-frame.
The chains DO NOT go onto the studs that have the cotter pin holes in them, unless this is a very primitive hitch.
Maybe someone out there has this same one and can comment on it further...

I agree, I've never heard of this brand, it appears to be missing parts, and unless it's an optical illusion, it appears that spring bar has been over stressed and has taken a set. If it has, it should not be used.

In addition to missing parts you don't know if the height of the hitch would be correct. I would also recommend hitch shopping.
