Well after much debate and spending way to much time and $$ at several alignment shops, I broke down and purchased the RR spring, the 2-front coil springs from SD Truck Springs. I went to the next step up from stock equipment. I also replaced the front shocks with Bilstein's and replaced the front sway bar with Hellwig’s 1-3/8” sway bar. 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...
