Default What suspension upgrades have you made to Kodiak chassis?

We are planning out summer x-country trip and I was looking to make the trip more enjoyable in our 06 34' Endura Kodiak chassis. I have read about the airbag systems everyone is putting on the SN but I haven't seen much on the Kodiak chassis. Anyone have experience here? Suggestions?

We have a bit of sway now so I am worried the bags will add more, but maybe the ride would be more enjoyable and not matter?

Have a ton of road noise, and even did dynamat lining of the cab but if the shocks up front and bags in the back make a difference in handling and noise I might be on for that.

I tow a 28' race trailer at about $8-$10K and the trucks passing us on the highway will push and pull me all over the place. Sometimes getting to the race is way scarier than racing.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.

I had my RV shop replace my worn out shocks (all of them) and also install Ride Right airbags in the rear. I enjoy them and the ride is better.

Go to this website. http://www.hendersonslineup.com/product ... -list.html

I have been looking into putting all the parts on myself and was going to start with a rear track bar for $510 to see how much that helps.

I've put on Bilstein shocks and Super Springs on my 05 Endura 6340. I also tow a 24' trailer with no issues.

Thanks people for all the above inputs. We have a new (to us) 2006 Diesel Endura on Kodiak chassis model 6331. I've only driven it ~ 250 miles and especially do not like the sway while turning at slow speed. Presently we are near Yuma, AZ and will start traveling home to upstate NY in the first week of March '15. Any other inputs on road handling with air/spring/shock installs/upgrades are sought. I am not looking to do the work myself (happily retired)

3/10/15 In Tucson, AZ at a Escapee Rally. We had (http://www.hendersonslineup.com) change/install many new suspension components at a tune of $4400. Today the 11th is test day to check for road manners and make adjustments if needed. Robert from Hendersons Lineup will be the driver.

Everything is working great. Also added but not pictured is a front sway bar. All work done by Henderson's Line-up.
