Workhorse sells an after-market air suspension system called Stabil-Air, as described below:

"Stabil-AirTM is a fully integrated air suspension system with all components artfully combined to deliver the ride and handling you'd expect in more complex and more expensive air suspension systems."

Has anyone successfully added such a system (or something similar) to their W22? If so, was the ride significantly improved?

Regards...........Bill

Bill as of right now I haven't heard of any W-22 or W-24 Workhorse Chassis owner's that have done this modification. Ed

Jerry, I read your correspondence with Ed. I also had my front/rear shocks replaced with Belsteins, and I recently added a BlueOx TruCenter (similar to Safe-T-Steer). So now my swaying and road wander have been eliminated. I never did have a porposing problem.

My remaining problem is that the coach still rides to hard, especially on a bumpy road (e.g., I-55 south of Memphis). My wife has a medical problem that is aggrevated by hard bouncing, so I am looking for a solution short of trading for a diesel pusher with air bags.

Regards.......
