Suspension ?

The Timbrens are similar to Sumo Springs. They will stiffen up the ride a bit and you may notice some decrease in body sway. My 2019 Tiffin 34PA (F53 26k Chassis) came with Sumo Springs and I was not very pleased with the ride. Had extreme porposing over bridge to road joints and body lean at intersections and driveway entrance/exit. Replaced original shocks with Koni FSD shocks and that significantly improved the two problem areas.

Ours too! I put them on when I noticed some spring shape change due to 10 years of use but the improvement was such that I wish I'd have done it much sooner.

2000 36 ft f53 chassis v10. I installed firestone air lift bags front and rear. Set them at 50 psi. Made one heck of a difference in my ride. Good luck
