I picked up a 1999 E Superduty (450) 30 ft class C . I did almost the same as last poster, rear swaybar, from Amazon and front polly bushings from NAPA.

Like he said, night and day differance.

Enjoy the ride

Thanks! I was hoping for a little better mileage than 8.5.

I know there have been lots of improvements to the E450 over the years, I'm wondering if I'd get any noticeable bang for the buck on my 2013 E450 chassis. ???

Picture of one of the rear springs

So now we have Bilstein shocks on the front and rear, upgraded rear springs to the 43-1339HD 7,200 lb 10 leaves springs and Extra Heavy Duty Front Coil Springs TTC-2815, Hellwig's Sway Bars on Front & Rear. NOW we drive better than my wife's Toyota Highlander! Finally I can drive and carry on a conversation.

The old leaf springs were so deformed they had a reverse bow to them.

Fleetwood sent me some update stickers for the load capacity which basically told us we could have a full tank of gas but could not carry any fresh water or have any black or grey water in our tanks.

The shame to all of this is FLEETWOOD purchased an undersized chassis for this 31.5' load and in the end stuck the RV owner with the repair. Shame on Fleetwood...

A Picture for you guys to see how bent my springs were. Yours may look the same way...
