Shocks or Sway Bar

I am still thinking about sway bars and shocks for a better ride. I have looked at sway bars and shocks, some tell me the bar and others shocks. My coach rides great but in turns it seems to sway a little to much, will the bar eliminate this or shocks work, about the same price, shocks a little cheaper.

Anti-roll bars and shocks serve totally different functions. The anti-roll bars will stiffen the side to side roll and reduce the leaning. Shocks damp the up and down movements. Shocks that are too stiff will give a rough ride and too soft will be a mushy uncontrolled ride.

So what is the ride and control issue you have?

If you are really after a better ride, you will need to go to an air ride system.

I think you'll find the shocks will do the trick. The RR8R chassis really doesn't need sway bars.
