I would go with what you have.

Adding extra will stiffen up the ride. Chances are yours are just getting tired.

A good spring and suspesion shop could also re-curve them for you, but that practise has gone by the way of the Dodo. It took skill to do it, and now most shops just want to sell new parts.

JMHO.

You're not saying what your issue is....but I had a 2004 32' Fleetwood Terra with the big block Chevy.....it was a beast on the hills. I needed to be able to lift the rear end to get it up the hill into my backyard. I installed air bags, with compressor and the dash mounted controller. I really only wanted to use the bags to give me the few inches of lift so I could back up my hill.

After the install, I used the bags to level the coach and add a little rear lift to it. It was amazing at how much better it handled. It was really a nice surprise. I also played with the air up front and found around 85psi made the coach really handle well.

Here is a pic of the current ones, maybe original. The ride clearance at the Jack's in the front is about 8 inches, the rear 4 inches.

I would measure against FACTORY SPECS for RIDE HEIGHT.

Yes for sure, that is why I'm trying to find the original replacement Springs. The ones we currently have are obviously shot.

So, what is factory spec for ride height front and rear and what do you measure?


And, front air bags (if so what PSI) or aftermarket stronger springs?

There should be some spring shops in your area that can make or find some.
