My horrible is probably far beyond some people's horrible.
We adapt easily.
I guess after the second set of anything happening like trucks passing or side gusts and that we brought it 2,200 miles on the weekend the east coast closed down Halloween due to weather and little Rock flooded, I guess we just got used to it.
Maybe the first three tornados steeled us.

Punchline:
Even with a baziliion dollar front end, some folks won't be comfortable.
I hate Lincoln Town cars. Hard for me to keep one between the lines. Drifty bastards make me carsick even if I'm driving.


I wouldn't take anyone's word for a damn thing about suspension until I had a few miles on it.
But
$3,000 for suspension work is either truly valuable or placebo valuable.
And $3k is cheap money to spend to get a spousal unit to quit harping, placebo or not.

I had a Jayco with the Hellwig suspension and it was junk. I feel sorry for people that don't even have that. Ford knows that everyone needs to install 3,000 dollars of upgrades or more but they don't change anything. Why don't large chassis use a form of rack and pinion steering instead of rope tied to the front axle to steer? Ford could have fixed this years ago. They knew there's a problem but because they sell all the large chassis and no competition why change. I wish they had competition things would change quickly.

Cool. The F53 can benefit from a steering stabilizer and the CHF though. I put front sumo springs on a previous F53 coach and frankly couldn’t tell the difference. Won’t do it again.
