Has anyone put a lift kit on the front of their Class C?

I have a 2020 24 ft. Freedom Elite on a Chevy chassis. If I add a 3 or 4 inch lift kit in front I think it will sit almost level on level ground. The way it sits from the factory it always needs the front ramped up.
Just wondering if anyone has added a lift kit in the front.

You own a 24 footer and you need to "lift" the front to level it? I had the opposite problem with our 24 footer, the front being too high. You can read about the cause and my solution with lots of pictures by CLICKING HERE.

There’s only one way to do this right.

Really, though, I’m not sure the best way to do it on this suspension. I’d probably go the way Ron Dittmer did with custom springs.

The front is lower than the rear. I'm not changing rear springs. The rear is ok.
I'll keep searching. I know there is a kit out there with longer springs, longer shocks, and raised spindles. I just want it to sit level on a level surface.

Iíve been looking at the website and Facebook page. They have kits to lift class c motorhomes and vans. Looks like they do it right. Iím looking to lift my jayco 29MVP.

If your front coil springs are over-loaded and being compressed, then changing them to higher-rated ones will be the simple and easy solution. I would get the rig weighed to determine how much actual weight your front springs are supporting, then compare that to the specs of the springs.

If it's appropriate, then maybe your rear is sitting too high. Maybe you are addressing the condition from the wrong end. A 24 foot rig on an E450 chassis just might be that. You might also be dealing with an exceptionally rough ride.

I changed front coil springs to softer ones to level our E350 24 foot rig. I was quite surprised how easy and safe it was to do. The first spring took over an hour, the second took only a half hour because of what was learned. Anyone handy can do it.

Done not only to level the rig, but also for a more comfortable ride. Also, it is NOT good to have so rough a ride unnecessarily. It is very hard on the structure.
