Suspension help

Looking to add some better suspension to my 30' Cedar Creek. MOR/ryde CRE235 Tandem Suspension System or the Lippert 279687 Equa-Flex Suspension Upgrade.
Are they both good? Any problems you have seen with one or the other? All input is appreciated.

You missed one, The Dexter E-ZFlex. The Mor/ryde is probably the best, with the Equa-flex next, but the E-ZFlex is the least expensive, I have used this one before and jst put it on my Alpha 5er, about 1100 miles so far and good to go.
Whichever one that you decide on will be a big improvement over the stock ones. Make sure that you install the heavier links and the wet bolts with the bronze bushings in the spring eyes.

Another option is CenterPoint Air Ride Suspension.
Center Point®

I installed a set on my 5th wheel. I've logged 30K miles towing with them. Trailer rides much smoother.

I just installed the Dexter EZFlex from Eastern marine, $167 and comes with wet bolts, and heavy duty links.
Next will be shocks, which I think will help more than anything.

If you are going to use shocks look at Joyriders system about 500

Do the CenterPoint. Unless you go to MoRyde to get IS suspension installed its the next best system available.

What does "more" suspension mean to you? The limit of the suspension is really the length of the springs and the associated travel, which doesn't change, depending on which of the above systems you choose.

What can help are the tandem suspension upgrades, wet bolts (so the suspension actually moves, and shocks. Beyond that, we've all about go the same springs that have limited travel...

Have you installed your Mor ryde yet. Noticable differences? Ride height changes?

I put a Moryde 4000 with wet bolt kit . It works great ! Up to four inches of travel jut make sure you get the measurement form first so you know you have enough clearance for the wheels. You cannot return it.
