questions about our FW Terra

Hi all noobee to this site & forum. We recently bought a 2002 Fleetwood Terra 26 MH with 7,200 true miles on it. The rig was very seldom used and in great shape. Had not even been licensed for last 5 years. Anyway, replaced all tires even though they looked fine and all runs great but trying to sort out numerous squeaks and rattles. Here are a few questions:
1. Any advice how to deal with squeaks that seem to be coming from the rear leaf springs? (WD40 helped a bit.)
2. Inflated the front airbags to the rated max (110psi) but front end still looks lower than the rear any easy fixes for lifting the front end higher?
3. Any recommended site for Chev Workhorse brake parts? Had a mechanic install new front pads (squeaked a lot), but now the calipers rattle and was told it needs new springs/clips.
4. Will be replacing the old TV in the middle of the dash with a flatscreen, locating it somewhere else in the coach any suggestions on how to replace the resulting big hole in the dash with something useful and decent looking?
More questions/issues yet to come these were top of our list. Thanks in advance for any help with our Terrasaurus.
Rich & Marg

Welcome to irv2.
You may want to check the spring mounts for springs in the rear some have ripped off because of rust or weak welds.
Here is some info on suspension products for quieter ride.
Your air bags will not help with the ride or out of level coach. Maybe you need a good suspension spring company take a look. It may help in control and steering of coach.
As for brake parts post question in Workhorse forum some people with the older Chev chassis's can help you out.
TV's or LCD's take a look at the links in my signature Quick Tips many conversions to give you some ideas.
Happy RVing and safe travels.
