Front Sagging Bounder

My 1998 Bounder 28T on a Chevy Chassis sags in the front, enough that I cannot fully extend the leveling jacks. I recently had new air bags installed. Can I still install new springs around the air bags (or where ever), and if so, would it help the low front end? What are the best types of springs and where can I buy them. Thanks a bunch.

Is springs will help raise the vehicle.

Take a look at the Sumo springs.

I used these when I did our 04 34' HR. HIGHLY recommend them. You will no longer have to deal with airbags. Front end will be up where it should have been without them. Mine cost me about 140. shipped.


I generally do most of my own work, but hesitated to do these at first. After finding and watching this I decided to go ahead. Took about an hour per side.

I have same 28T Bounder and weighed my front axle and gave that to my RV shop I frequent and he put them in and realigned the front wind. Big difference in handling on mountain roads , coach never sags and no more blown air bags !

To get level.

When I first bought my M.H. the front right side was lower then the left side and when I informed the co. about it they sent me to a spring shop and they installed a leaf in the back right side which raised the front right side up to where it belonged.
Just a thought.
