Got it installed on the front landing gear today. Have to order some brackets for the rear before I can finish. Sure did make a big difference.

I made my own and yes they do make a big difference. I did not put on the rear because I have a set of scissor jacks just behind the rear axle and electric stabilizers at the rear and it is rock solid. Your install looks Great. How close does it come from the battery box?? mine is real close since I have two battery boxes there.

2 small bottle jacks under the frame at the tires will take that bounce out too...

I like the look of your set up. We have the 4 point electric leveling system so have the stabilizers behind the axles and electric jacks at the rear. I have been using a pin box stabilizer tripod and the X chocks. I'm hoping this will be even better.

The battery box is going to be very close. Not sure why they put one in a box and the other is counter sunk. They sit right next to each other.

Our problem was more the shaking in the front bedroom when someone would walk thru or get up and go to the restroom in the middle of the night.
