Upgraded suspension

Has anyone installed a MOR/Ryde SRE2-733X-1 SRE 4000 Suspension System for 33" Wheel Base Tandem Axle on their RW?

It sure looks like a great addition to smooth out the ride.

I've just finished this upgrade along with the H.D. shackle and wet bolt kit. Is the system more robust than what it replaced? ABSOLUTELY! Honestly, I'm not sure this upgrade is something you can point at and immediately say, "Oh my gosh, what a difference!!" I believe the investment will pay dividends down the road simply by reducing stress on the coach. If you're looking for immediate results, look to disc brakes and independent suspension. We're just so much up in the air about what our future plans for this rig may be that I'm not willing to sink a whole lot of coin into the RW just yet.

Thanks for the input, Tom.
Did you do the install yourself? Any suggestions as to the relative difficulty of doing that?
I have the heavy duty shackle and wet bolts and I'll probably order the SRE 4000 tomorrow. The SRE 4000 looks much stronger than the 3000 and offers one inch more travel. Did you look at both?

Yes, I did the install myself and took the RW to a truck shop so that they could check alignment. An alignment is not required but I just felt better having it done. I went with the 4000 for all of the reasons you stated.

I did one side at a time and installed new U-bolts because I installed all new leaf springs as well. It helped to have two floor jacks. The 9/16" U-bolts are torqued to 110 ft.lbs. so if you go that route, make sure you have proper tools.

Thanks for the info!

Several folks on this forum (including myself) have installed the SRE-4000 and Heavy Duty Shackles Kit. It is a very doable DIY project if you have the tools and a 2 or more jack stands, bottle jacks and/or floor jacks.

Since the installation, I have noticed a significant improvement in how well the coach takes the bridge approaches.

My next upgrade will likely be the Joy Rider Shock Absorber Kt.

Thanks to all. I have a truck repair place that is fast and cheap, so I may have them do it. I don't have a floor jack, bottles only, so we'll see how they do!

You can do it with 1 bottle jack, it's a little more difficult though. The jacks are just to support the axle, raise the coach with the level up system.

I installed the MorRyde SRE 4000 on my Redwood over a year ago, been about 20,000 miles with it, no problems, love it.

Since I fulltime and move about every two weeks year round, I am going ahead and getting the MorRyde IS installed the end of July prior to the Rally.

Not upgrading because of any problems with the SRE 4000, just want the most reliable, rugged, smoothest ride for my Home on Wheels !!!
