Sumo springs

I would like to ask if anyone has installed these on their FR3? I was thinking about installing steering stabilizers on my motor home. The dealer suggested the Sumo springs. Can anyone tell me about these. If anyone has any suggestions they would be appreciated. Also if you could give me a price for installing. I have one price and it seems a little high, over $1,000. I just want something to help stop some of the sway while driving. Any help is appreciated.

I would give super springs a call. They were a great help with my needs.

There's 2 kind of sumo springs. The cheaper one that only mounts on one end and should be simple to install because it only replaces the rubber snubbers. Which you should be able to to with simple wrenches.
Or the more expensive sumo springs that mount on top and bottom. The best part of sumo is they don't leak like air bags.
Check and see but last time I looked the 2013 ford F53 chassis that is the 2014 fr3 will only take the cheaper ones up front. The more expensive ones that can go in the back would require drilling in the frame rail. The cheaper ones are like $200 for a pair and expensive ones are like $400 for a pair. You need 2 pairs for whole vehicle. last I looked. So it's $600 in parts for cheap upfront and expensive in rear.

Not sure sumo springs or airbags are what you want for sway. For sway you want a rear torque bar and a rear sway bar. The sumo springs would just cushion the ride. But it will still be a truck chassis not a bus chassis.
