I don't have either, but would prefer the IS. The biggest difference would be about $2500+ between the 2 options, the IS is pricey but not really comparing apples to apples.

I just spoke with Henderson out of Oregon and for our 2015 39MB it was around 8K for the IS with Kodiak disc brakes. Takes about 3-4 days for install. Have to make appointment and parts take a month to arrive.

For me, I went with the IS because it eliminates the leaf springs and the issues related to them. The order in which I made improvements to the Redwood:
1. Add Disk Brakes - Ron
2. Replace Tires - Ron
3. Upgrade to IS and 8K axles

After the three upgrades, I feel pretty confident going down the road. The disk brakes and the tires, to me were the most significant.

Huh? IS and axles? I thought they removed the axles and threw them away when you have IS installed.

You are correct. The Mor/Ryde IS requires removal of the original axles and replacing with an independent suspension on each wheel.

Independent Suspension System - MORryde Products


Hope this helps.

You can get IS in 7k or 8k, The IS axles don't run the width of the rv, but I am not sure what else you call them.

I had the 8K IS installed last June and I believe I paid $3700.00 ... I also paid $500 extra to have the work finished on a Saturday as I could not make any other timing work..To me, it was worth it...

If you plan ahead, they are great to work with..

I LOVE my IS.... IF you can afford it, there is nothing like it

My order of upgrades -
1-17.5’s swapped from my trade with 500 miles
2-Discs, THANKS RON !
3- Morryde 8K IS
All within 1 year.

I see that the IS sounds like the way to go, my main reason of axel upgrade is.. like mentioned on a different post before ,I keep getting wear and blowing tires after 700miles or less, reason most likely bend axel caused do to overweight on my unit. So I'm thinking to upgrade axel size. Called a knowable RV place on the Alabama LA border and the said I should go with 8k Axel's he also said I could go up to 9 and 10 K but needed spring support modification. I'm just trying to figure out witch way to go.
