LV, definately an old hot rodder here. Would love to get the Banks system for our 2012 Lexi class c, but as a do it yourselfer, can't bring myself to pay to have the headers installed. Everything else in the system is easy bolt on, but from what I've read/heard, installing headers on a V-10 is a pain, not for the driveway shade tree.
Maybe one day....

the single best thing I've ever done to a class C is the front sumo springs

took about 20min to in stall.. coach is riding on a cloud... no sway ... no porpoius

one of my favorite of all time rv's was my 22' Lexington...also had a few concords

don't know if i'll do the banks cause probley won't keep this one long...

I wanna get the new 6 speed when it hits the lot

LV, after your comment on the Sumo's, did a bit of research, and think I may go with a set. Cheap enough mod for what they supposidly do.
Based on your use, which set would you recomend for a 2012 Forr. Riv. Lexington. It's a 283ts on the standard E-450 chassis. Solo or Maxim?
Thinking on doing just the front for the time being.

I would go with the maxim... that's what I did....really helped the handling... and smoothed out the ride..

the way I did the rears was removed the tires and bolted them on..

three of the mount holes are there.. but have be drilled to 3/8''

and one needs to be drilled

the front are real easy... takes a #10 metric socket to get the stock bump stops out ... then the sumo screws in that threaded hole...



well worth the money

I really would like to, but have a hard time justifying the monetary part of the project. Please keep us up if you do it!

I wish there was more support from Chevrolet for this segment, because the 6.0 truck motor is better than the turd Ford V10 lol. Fords domination really makes it hard to avoid a mod motor.

2ff thanks for bringing up this site, couldnt help but check it out as we're looking for a class c at the moment.

My dad did a full banks mod on his v10 05 holiday rambler. Night and day difference pulling grades with tow vehicle (cj5) or 16ft loaded enclosed bike trailer. Better mileage but noisy as all get out when you get in the r's...

I couldn't imagine putting bolt-ons on any engine in a class C. After just going 1100 miles in a Ford Sunseeker 3100, the lack of insulation made it louder than I would like on the highway. It crashed, boomed, vibrated, made the engine cover hot....things I'm sure are necessary when you're building a C as light as possible. But extra noise would not be welcome.
