The British are more inclined to use damper to describe a shock absorber, but a dampener is someone or something that dampens. Itís usually used where damper would work just as well.
Is there a point here other than a grammer lesson???? Yes, spelled it wrong--sue me

I agree. Made a huge difference for me.

I think your Vegas is on a different chassis. But someone on this forum will know.

This is the wrong post location, but...
I replaced the stock Ford OEM steering damper on my E450 chassis with a Bilstein damper.
It made a difference for me, far less wheel play (right/left)
Paid about $90 on Amazon, easy DIY install (plug & play)

I paid $98 with tax in April-2019
It's been increased to $114 on Amazon
But check around to see if it's cheaper elsewhere...

Sounds like all the stuff we did to our 2016 Vegas. It was all over the road before upgraded.
Reason we bought 2020 hurricane because it rides so smooth and easy.

Guess thor/ford did some upgrades.

Will keep your list and see if repair shop recommends any of them.
