The trick with Monaco is getting rid of the Monroe shocks. Bilstein or Koni's significantly improve the ride quality and stability. The Koni's are not quite as smooth as the Bilsteins but the Koni's really decrease the pitch and roll on an already stable platform.
I've noticed very little push/pull when pass by a large truck and good sidewind stability. The FL has a little softer ride but I think the addition of good shocks really tame the Roadmaster chassis resulting in a good ride.
