What model Bilstein steering damper did you use? On the Bilstein user guide, they list # 24-174534. I'm thinking this a good spring project.

 Steering dampener from Summit Racing - Bilstein #BSN-24-174534 cost $95.97. I installed it in about 30 minits or less. Only had two nuts to remove, took old one off, slide new one on, replace the nuts. Real easy to do. Did not have to raise the PC.

Shocks  from eshocks.com $328.40 for all four and local truck tire shop installed the for $193.36 for a total of $521.76. Bilstein #s front 33-187570 rear 33-176857. Let someone else install the shocks as it was a real pita for him.

Hi All,

I have checked back in and read your comments and suggestions.  It is all good, thank you.  I have had the Safe-T-Plus installed at the Nashville Camping World $712 all in with tax.  I am very happy with the results.  I have the Helwig rear anti-sway bar and helper springs on order.  They will go on next.  Linda and I will be taking the 2100, Lulu to Florida in January.  Hope to see you all in the future.  Thanks again, 2travel  Steve

That is a great start.  I hope it is also your finish.

Whoever installs your rear bar and helper springs, have him inspect the front stabilizer bar.  Just make sure it's in good order, especially where the ends of the bar passes through gromets.  Get the mechanic's opinion on that.
