Very few people would say they bought their motorhome (or truck, van or SUV) for the suspension. For most of us, the suspension is out of sight and out of mind — even though your driving performance, safety and comfort are all riding on those components.
Unequal weight distribution, worn or inadequate components, excessive axle side play or a higher center of gravity can quickly overpower a stock suspension, even in everyday driving. Unfortunately, finding a solution can be as frustrating as dealing with the consequences.
Do you need a custom suspension component?
Which component is right for you?
Each of these components has a specific role to play.
The graph below identifies the primary benefits of aftermarket suspension products. Each one has value — for a specific application. It’s important to understand and identify what you’re experiencing, so you can select the correct product solution. Note: the items in yellow below denote products offered by ROADMASTER.
Here's how to be the expert — Use this chart when addressing your suspension and handling concerns to make an informed decision about what aftermarket suspension product(s) you need. Know your need and the products that will meet them. Shocks provide comfort; air bags support weight; anti-sway bars control left-to-right sway; trac bars reduce 'wander,' and steering stabilizers provide blow out protection.
• Anti-sway bars — virtually eliminate ‘body roll’ (the vehicle rolls from side to side, especially during cornering). Anti-sway bars stabilize the vehicle, which keeps it level through crosswinds, as well as dramatically improving overall handling.
• Davis TruTrac bars — drastically reduce ‘wander’ (the steering feels loose, making it difficult — and physically exhausting — to keep the vehicle in a straight line).
• Reflex Steering Stabilizers — front tire blow out protection. Stabilizers also automatically compensate for oversteer caused by pot holes, rut tracks and other unfavorable road conditions.
