Suspension?

I have a 1988 Rv on a Chevy 454 chassis.
Do I have an independent front suspension OR I beam suspension?
Thanks peeps!

Chevy has independant "A" frame suspension and Ford has the straight axel. You also have air bags inside your coil springs which need to be pumped to at least 50#s. Unless it has the after market hose system you must crawl underneath to acess the fill system. Being an '88 they might leak so check them out.

Thanks Don!

I do have aftermarket airbags and the fill hoses are right under the front hood.
What is the suggested PSI? 40psi, 50psi

I was also going to replace the front shocks because the suspension is very stiff.
