Sage do you think that this will help with wind mine handles well unless the wind is blowing hard with large gust I have done all I can do except add a better steering stabilizer

Boso, I don't know if it was the alignment, changing air pressure in tires and air bags, the steering stabilizer or a combination that made the improvement. But there is significant improvement in all around handling for me.
I don't want to recommend anything as each of us has our own set of influences like weight, wheelbase, tire and air bag pressure, alignment, driving habits and road conditions.
But have you researched Steersafe, Roadmaster and Safe-T as I believe they all have self centering.

Sagecoachdriver, Is this the correct Bilstein part number 24-174534? Are you on an E350 or E450 chassis? Thanks!

Marksha83, yes that's the one I ordered from Amazon and shipped from Shockwarehouse with free shipping.

Sage I thought mine was handling great until a couple weeks ago driving home from mountains the wind was blowing at least 20 mph gusting to 40 I was all over the road at 70 mph

Boso, I slow down when the wind picks up and follow the semi trucks at 55 mph or slower. At 70mph, you're going to have increased handling issues. Try it, better to get there a few minutes later than not at all.

Yes you are right and the handling is great at 50-60 mph but I trying to get it to handle in the wind also I don't mind adding a steering stabilizer if that would improve it I think the trac bar was better than 500$ and it did help I think the loss of pressure in my airbags is my biggest problem

Question, is the Roadmaster Reflex any better than the Bilstein stabilizer. On Amazon the Roadmaster is $234 and the Bilstein is only $89.
