Home Smooth Sailing: Motorhome Suspension Upgrade 05-MH-Source-Suspension-Removing-OE-Rear-Shock

05-MH-Source-Suspension-Removing-OE-Rear-Shock

Source of Stability: A few Source Engineering suspension modifications on motorhomes sitting atop the popular Freightliner XC chassis make a dramatic difference in handling and ride.
[3] About the size of a pack of gum, this Ride Control Valve regulates airflow in and out of each air spring to smooth out the chassis rocking and rolling. The proprietary metering design lets air out quickly, but slows it down returning into the air bag.
[5] Master technician Todd Hill showed us how Source’s Platinum Series shock (left) compares to the factory Sachs rear shock. The two look similar in size. But the Sachs shock (right) is a twin-tube, while the Bilstein is a high-pressure-gas single tube, so the piston and valving, which control the suspension, is about 50 percent larger on the Bilstein.
