SumoSprings

Next week we are having front & rear SomoSprings installed on our Allegro 36LA. We ordered them as a kit from the Tiffin parts department, $1350. The ride & handling is not terrible, but it can be improved. A good test will be the road right in front of the RV Service Center, its really rough.

We are planning a trip from central Arkansas to the Northwest this summer & hope this will make it a little more comfortable for DW to do some driving!
Well let you know what we think after the installation.

Happy camping.

Dave

I hope that price includes installation. Other wise you could of bought the 4 springs hundreds of dollars cheaper direct from SuperSprings Self-Adjusting Suspension Stabilizers
Cost of parts including shipping for my RV is $807.00
Labor for installation of all 4 takes 3-3.5 hours.

Sumo springs will help reduce sway. To improve ride & handling, if you do not have them already, I highly recommend the "Safe T Plus" steering stabilizer. http://www.safe-t-plus.com/, Koni FSD Shocks for comfort ride, Front and Rear Anti Sway Bars, and a Rear Trac Bar (for tail wagging the dog)

go with the bilstiens on the shocks... the konis fade

I took the konis off and replaced them with bilsiens... much better..


also once you do the sumos... you'll be done... nothing else to do but shocks....


I ran my coach with just sumo's no shocks... so it's is fact that the harsh pounding is coming from the shocks..

Got the sumos installed yesterday. Driving on a really twisty road, lots of 20 MPH kind of turns, the MH cornered better and there was some improvement to the ride. I recommend them.

I added Sumo Springs, a Blue Ox rear trak bar, and a Blue Ox Trucenter to the front. I highly recommend these modifications. Made a huge difference in the way ours drives!!
