Looking to put a set of Sumo springs on my 2018 Georgetown 31R5 .

My 2012 came with them front and rear. Can’t say if they work because I don’t know how it was before them.

I put front and rear on my 2017 FR3 32DS, notice some difference but not enough vs cost. traded in for my current 2019 Georgetown GT5 34H5. I have installed steer stabilizer and rear anti sway, very happy for now. may put front anti sway on front later. No CHF as I don't want to risk void warranty.

May I ask what prompted you to install the rear sway bar? I'm having a Safe-T-Plus steering stabilizer added to my 2020 GT5 34H5 (on a 2019 F-53 chassis), which is the reason I'm asking.

I'm considering adding front SumoSprings to try and avoid any bottoming-out on the front axle (because the SumoSprings replace the factory stop).

I'm finding it interesting that the Georgetowns with the sidewall failures seem to only be having the front self-tapping screws shear off and not the rest of them. It makes we wonder if the issue is related to the front axle hitting the stop because of crummy roads or it being a single tire up front. Or something.

Thanks,

Ray

When I picked up coach in February, we drove straight to Florida for 3 weeks. It handled decent, but noticed more rear sway than I liked. Also some play in steering. I had my son install steer stabilizer and CW installed Roadmaster rear anti sway bar. I know how some members dislike CW, but I have nothing but good service at my local CW in Roanoke, VA. I have only driven about 100 miles since having rear anti sway installed but have notice big improvement. Less back and forth movement. I plan on installing front bar but need to wait and build up my play money fund. may consider front sumo springs to lessen hard bumps in the future, want to go on some trips to really find out how it handles.

I bought and installed Sumos front and rear on my 2014 378XL. I would do it again in an instant! they made an amazing difference. my wife no long closes her eyes on curves and narrow roads. I did them first, then added a Roadmaster steering stabilizer and a rear track bar. everything together has made driving it a real pleasure.
