After driving an '04 Meridian on a Freightliner chassis for nearly 4 years and 40,000 miles, I have decided to do something about the "rocking". Highway driving is fine - no adverse reaction to truck bow waves, but driveways are an adventure!

Am considering either Koni shocks, or Super Steer Motion Control valves, or 3R's T-3 Anti-Rock Kit.

Would like to know of your experience.

I had the 3T's kit installed and am happy with it. It is no longer a roller coaster going through driveways and cross gutters. I can't speak to other products, have no knowledge of them, but I believe the 3T's product has performed as advertised.

Try reading this.... I have had excellent luck with the Motion Control Units. They are easy to install and work great.

I have the 3Ts on my 04 and think it does a good job. Do both the front and back kits.. Works for me.

Great information, Sammie. All positive, nothing negative. I'm sold! Thank you for the feedback, everyone!

The 3 t's equipment is fine..but at 40,000 miles your shocks are probably shot..Try the Koni FSD"S if made for your coach first. Call Justin at Koni. After that if you want to go further with other equipment do so...Good Luck

We have done the Koni's, SS motion control and also the SS bell crank. It drives like a sports car now.

Had a chance to really test the side-to-side damping at speed when we found a "dip' in a road that was in fact a sunken part of the road that ran diagonally. No warning signs so we hit it at about 50mph. Coach handled it beautifully.

Good news......did you do the work yourself?
The Super Steers are on order - install seems to be straight forward. Any tips?
