Suspension Experts?

Is there any shop in Florida, or the Southeast US that can recommend and install suspension components in an RV? I'm thinking of something similar to Brazel's in Washington state?

Does anyone have any experience with a good shop? I want to add some stuff to a new Class C I just bought.

Josam's near Orlando seems to have an excellent reputation.

Bob, you don't mention in this thread what you are trying to correct. If you are considering lifting the rear end, consider replacing the rear spring pack with a Ford Heavy Duty pack or equivalent, vs helper springs or air bags. My receiver center is 12" above the ground and my rear end is overweight and raising the rear end will shift some weight to the front axle---I'm told. Do this before a wheel alignment.

A rear Track Bar will HELP with 18 wheelers moving you when they pass.

And I PM'd you,.
