Thanks. You got it, the right jumps up and down and the left side squawks very loud. Have been under the dash many times looking for supports. Found some of the left side but none of the right side. They have to be there but so far no joy. I made a brace for the right side. I guess I need to install it. Thanks for your comments!

Yup! I made a bracket for the right side but havenít installed it. The left side squeaks like a big dog. Still havenít found the source. Sounds like plastic rubbing together. Thanks for the comments, Bob

On my Dolphin I spent a lot of time chasing creaks and rattles. Yes, most were plastic on plastic, which I fixed by putting pieces of index card stock between places where two pieces of plastic come together around the windshield and overhead console area. My power visors also rattle when fully closed, so I just let them hang down about an inch.

My W-22 Dolphin always rode relatively well, but I drove a W-22 Winnebago once that seemed much rougher and noisier than my Dolphin and I can't really tell you why. This is before I started adding suspension goodies like Sumos to my coach, and I think all W-22 used the same springs, so it must really just come down to shocks and tires (and/or pressures). 80-85 lbs is where my Dolphin rides good and I can sense it riding a bit rougher as the tires heat up. I usually end up around 100 psi as they get up to temp.

Think of the Sumos as bigger, softer bump stops than the stock ones. They can cushion the blows a bit better and more progressively, but don't do a lot to smooth the ride otherwise.

I have Bilsteins too. No complaints from me about them, but there are those who swear by the oil-based Konis, so they might be worth trying.
