We have a 30.2--same basic bones, different layout. First check if the Cheap Handling Fix (CHF, do a search and you will find descriptions and pictures) has been done on your coach, both front and rear. If not, see if the alignment shop will do it for you. That should help with handling. While you are at it, add a Safe T Plus, or similar, to help you maintain control in the event of a front tire blowout (assuming one is not already installed). In my opinion, these are the minimum mods that you should undertake for safety and handling. Some forum members stop there, others do more--remember we have different coaches and different driving comfort levels!!! As for us and our coach, we did the CHF, alignment, SafeTPlus and also added a rear Trak Bar and front and rear sumo springs. We are done with handling and suspension mods now--she handles pretty well in most condItions. You can do modifications piece meal and evaluate the results before doing anything else, or decide what makes sense for you and bring it in once and you are done.
There will be lots of opinions on what you can or should do; and some of the folks will have no issues with their rigs as is. Just keep in mind that they aren't the one driving your rig!
Have fun, keep us posted, and happy travels.
