Default 97 Sun Sport F53 rear lift kit

It was recommended that I lift the tail end of the RV as the RV was starting to show signs of sagging in the rear.

Measuring about a 4in difference from front to back from the ground to the chassis.
Yesterday, I ordered a half suspension lift kit from SuperSteer at a reasonable cost including free shipping 78lbs worth for 17k GVW F53 chassis.

The installation instructions seem pretty simple and I need to pull the back wheels off anyway to change out the tire valve extension for the inner tire.

Will see how this goes. There was a lot of cool anti-sway kits as well. One thing at a time.

Best Regards, JohnF

Actually, I had to order two spring kits. One fore each side. I ended using 4 pipe clamps to compress the spring to get the roller and bolt mounted. I originally used only two pipe clamps and almost took my head off when the both failed at the same time. I cut the pipes at 12inches long. I am very happy with the results and am no longer dragging my tail end.
