Anti sway + new shocks on E450 28'
I have had my 2005 Lexington 283 by forest River, for three months now. The chassis is a Ford E450, with 27,000 miles, rig is 29’ overall and has three slides. It must be near the weight limit of 14,050 but I have not had it weighed yet. I bought front and rear anti sway bars by Helwig and 4 Bilstein shocks on the internet and had a local shop in Anaheim, CA do the install. Got home yesterday from a 700 mile trip to Yosemite in California. Had both freeway and mountain road driving conditions.
There is a significant improvement in stability. The wind from 18 wheelers is hardly noticeable and corners are much more stable. I like the results very much. Perhaps the best thing is the steady tracking or lack of lane wandering. Makes driving easier and less fatiguing. I think it was worth the cost.
Bilstein shocks from allshocks.com were $343.
Anti sway bars from sdtrucksprings.com $431.
Shop labor to install $660.00 total $1,434.
