Air Lift Springs addition

My coach seemed a little low in the rear, so I had some Air Lift air-bags installed along with the automatic control "Smartair automatic on-board air system". What a difference in ride and handling!

The automatic control system was probably over-kill, but I do like that it controls each side separately and totally automatically.

I highly recommend this system for better ride and control, and much less sway.

The front end aligned by Josam in Orlando the day before installing the air-bag system. Josam is the finest truck and bus alignment shop in the world (in my opinion).

I just cannot believe the difference in how much better the RV rides and handles.

I have air bags on the four corners of the sunsport and I agree they make a world of difference in ride and most of all the handling. On some of the roads (county "C" Northern WI.) I traveled before I had the feeling we were going to flip over on our side we swayed so much with the air bags the ride is nothing like that.

My '99' Gulf Stream Sub came with air bags on all four corners and I feel that the ride is superior.
