Mauserdude67, did you find that the Sumo's made the ride harder? I fitted Timbren springs to the front of my 24.1 and, although the handling is vastly improved, the ride can be harsh over rough roads. I've to travel a couple if miles of crap road surface before I get to decent roads and it's painful to hear the crashing of the RV, so I keep my speed right down.

I don't think the ride is harder or harsher, but the front Sumo springs did stiffen it up a bit.
We have some pretty crappy road surfaces in my region of the country, too. I'm hoping that a new set of tuned Bilstein shock-absorbers will reduce the crashing of the suspension, especially on the front. After rolling over numerous potholes and expansion joints it seems to me that the damping, or lack thereof, is what needs addressed at this point on my Axis. I'm also installing the Helwig sway bars front and rear to address the roll control in crosswinds and other windy conditions.
