Anyone know of replacement rear coil springs for a UFO?

The manufacturer doesn't have any replacement springs. The stock ones are too stiff and causes bouncing. It also causes the front end to bounce.

Are they to stiff or actually to soft?

What unit do you have, ufo doesn't tell much. Model, chassis would help.

are you loading all of your gear in the rear of the RV? maybe redistributre your load to even out the weight? It sounds like your rear suspension is maxed out and the front end is light.

Sounds like you have a Georgetown 391 Gas Pusher with a WorkHorse Chassis built from 2007-2009. Have you tried contacting WorkHorse? They should at least have the spring ratings so if you need to go someplace else you have a starting point.

From the lloks of the picture of the chassis I can understand why it's so bouncey. Unless there is a counterweight on the front of the chassis I can't imagine how they figured the front end would not feel like it's ready to lift off.

We have a forum member, Lawfive, that owns a 391TS UFO. You may want to Message him and see if he's experienced the same problem you are talking about. He would have firsthand knowledge for helping you.
