New Airbags for the rear Good Idea?

Hello All,

Well my problem child continues to give me some issues. My new problem is that the RV leans to the left on the drivers side from the rear. I bought it used and luckily my extended warranty has been fixing it for the last 3 years at a tune of $30,000 so far.

I took it to a shop that ford recommended near my house and the guys found that the previous owner had someone add a couple of pieces of metal squares that are about an inch and 1/2 in height on the right side suspension which I think is now making it lean to the left. Also the thing rocks like a boat when I get out of any drive way. I first thought take those 2 pieces of metal out and see if it's straight, but then I though of the bad rocking and I liked the idea of air bags since it will fix the rocking.

So my questions are:

1- Is this a good idea for $1,500? I have to spring for that as I'm not sure if the warranty will fix it.

2- After adding the airbags since I fixed just about everything in this thing am I better off selling it before the warranty expires or do I just get a new warranty next year and keep fixing anything else that may pop-up? It's been in the shop for 2 to 3 weeks per year since I bough it?

Ever try Coilover shocks ?? I installed some on a 31' fifth-wheel and they worked great.

The ones I had were made by "Four-way" but it looks like they are no longer in business.
