Suspension & Ride

Will I greatly improve my ride on my gas engine coach if I replace the original Ford shocks with Heavy Duty Bilstein shocks?

My coach was equiped with Bilstein and I added Firestone Ride Rite air bags on the 4 corners and that really helped the sideways swinging that I use to have.

Don't know your model or year but lots of Ford's came with Bilstein shocks. My 2002 Brave did.

My coach also came with bilstein shocks, I would check you sway bar bushings to see if they are rotted out.

Go over to the Ford chassis section. There are several very good threads there. I put a trak bar on the rear of our F53 gasser that really helped.
