I'm new, and Interested. Those look like Sulastic Rubber springs. Did you put them on all 4 corners? What about the blue thing?

Congratulations and welcome to the Forum..

Looks like the only thing left to do is the CHF and possibly front end alignment check...

When you do the rear CHF, I'd remove the bolts that hold the torsion bar to the axle, and then re-install them using blue locktite and torque them to 65 ft-lbs.. (These bolts have a habit of loosening up and falling off.)

No CHF on the 2017, comes with a bigger helwig front SB from jayco different mounts, on the rear the SB will hit the driveshaft brake hard so thatís a no no. I did the tiffen rear facing second SB on the rear.

Those are the sumosprings all four corners it helps dampen the he leaf springs and minimize leaning similar to what sway bars do, typically only bounces one time over large expansion joints and large dips DW says it even seems quieter going down the freeway.

Very handsome coach and great suspension mods. I'm sure you have a well-handling and quite comfortable coach to drive. Wishing you safe and happy travels.
