Class A body roll

What's the best way to stop the side to side leaning of my class A in turns?

Welcome to the forum. I always took turns slowly and didn't have that issue.

Do you have a gas engine chassis with springs or diesel pusher with air-ride?

If you have a Ford chassis, search for "cheap handling fix".

2forcefull - nice videos front and test drive. Well narrated.

Looking forward to the rear video.

Nice growl from the engine and exhaust when touching the accelerator.

Did the front chf- definite improvement. Iwant to go with the sumos but I see they have 2 different ones. One is basically a bigger bumper ($200) the other is bolted top and bottom ($600) Anyone know if the cheaper ones will do the job or should I just go for the bolt ons?
BTW thank you all for putting your 2 cents in.

the bolt on work way better because they offer resistance on the up travel

where air bags actually push upward,,, they resist

LVRVLUVR, did you install SumoSprings Maxims front and rear? What is your opinion about Solos in the front and Maxims in the rear?
Thanks,

I put maxims front & rear. Did the front first, major improvement in handling & much less body roll. Did the rears later & overall ride stability improved noticeably. Solos don,t attach top & bottom so you're not going to get the same damping & roll resistance. I had the same thought, but am glad I went with the maxims f & r. I put them in myself & I'm no mechanic. Heard the rears were harder to do but I actually found them easier to install. It's a great product & the company is excellent to deal with if you have questions or issues.
