I am working on upgrading my suspension due to it falling off of the RV.
I chose the Morryde 4000 due to the good reports I viewed on Youtube.
So far I have finished the left side and starting on the right.
Also have to replace some of the support braces that are over the tire area.
The plastic bushings were totally worn out. Replaced them with brass ones.
Replaced the standard bolts with wet bolts. Replaced the standard shackles with the Morryde Heavy Duty Shackle Kit.

Great job James!
I imagine I’ll need to do that sooner or later, probably at the time I get shocks put on.
What happened to the coroplast on the underbelly?August 16, 2018 at 3:58 pm #52882JamesMember
I would do it soon as you can. I have a 2015 and the plastic bushings were totally worn out.
I droped the under belly cover. It made it easier to do the welding. I am glad I did drop it because the water lines to the washer hookup had my rear heater vent collapsed, No air flow to the vent.
Also the electrical and hydraulic lines were just setting on the belly cover, bouncing up and down while I travel down the road.August 27, 2018 at 5:59 pm #52987Ken MarksParticipant
I never cease to be amazed at some of the shoddy materials and workmanship on RVs. It doesn’t seem to matter how much you pay for the rig, you better be prepared to spend a lot more. Recently I looked in the rear view mirror at the front of my fiver and noticed the whole thing was on a slant. All the leaf springs on one side had sheared off. I took it to a company that specializes in big truck suspensions and they said my suspension (from the factory) was junk. They replaced all the springs and related hardware for under 1k. I thought that was a small price to pay for peace of mind. Don’t get me going on OEM tires!August 28, 2018 at 11:10 am #52995Kimberly FloresMember
I decided to look up the stock MORryde CRE 3000 system that came with my trailer. It has bronze bushings so I think I can rest a little easier. The shackles seem to be heavy duty but I didn’t measure them, and they aren’t the wetbolt variety, but they also have bronze bushings.
I’m always checking the suspension system for cracks and anomalies, and noticed all my tires are wearing/cupping on the outsides and inside.
They are inflated to 108# of the 110# limit.
I figure they have about 10,000 miles on them.
Not sure why they are wearing like this, so if anyone has a tip, just holler!September 27, 2018 at 9:31 pm #53205LolaandRushParticipant
