Monarch 30' improved handling
I have a 2004 30' Monaco Monarch. I purchased it back in Feb of this year (2010) and after my first trip of any distance, felt a lot of "float" in the rear while going over I-64 in WV. I took it to Dsuban Spring Service in the Cincinnati suburb of Springdale.
I had Tony, the owner, evaluate what could be done to improve the drivability. After a new alignment which was really needed; he recommended adding a leaf to the rear springs. I had them do that at about $800 and today I went back to have the shackle bolts tightened as they requested (they asked to have it done after 2 weeks to allow the springs to set). I took the long was back to where I live in a KY suburb in Cincinnati.
It was well worth the expense! The ride if must more stable and feels better controlled over bumps that used to cause the rear end to rebound too much. I was surprised that the ride over bumps did not deteriorate.
They really made me feel like they wanted to do the best possible improvement.
I would recommend them with NO hesitation. I'm a perfectionist; it takes a lot to impress me and sure surely did!
