rough ride

Hi All

I have a 2006 FR Lexington 255 GS motorhome, I have tried everything to stop the harsh banging and rough ride Parabolic springs, best shocks nothing works. The rear weighs 8800# front 3600# Ford 450 super duty weighed with normal stuff and 10 gals water full fuel and propane. Has anyone found anything to help, I am afraid I will break something as hard as it bangs down on an semi bumpy road.

Thanks
Wrinkles

We found that a good set of stabilizer bars fixed the banging as we traveled down the road...they made driving the rig much easier...don't have to fight the steering wheel anymore. 2005 FR Lexington

It's possible that the rear springs have sagged causing the springs to ride on the overloads.May need the springs re-arched.We did that on an older motorhome and it improved the ride quite a bit.
