I also have original shop manuals if anyone has a tech question that can be answered only from the manual. I've got the mor ride rear suspension (replaced the blocks once) and air bags on the front. (best addition for ride and campsite leveling)

Today in the 270 section there is a member asking about the "Rubber Mount Suspension".

Welcome. I'd be curious to see the Mor Ride suspension. I have never even heard of it.

the picture posted is not quite like what I have. maybe that one is for lighter duty apps. I have the rubber mor ride blocks before and after the wheels. 2 blocks in front and 2 blocks behind. makes a big, big difference in handling. I never really noticed the buffeting and swaying when being passed or when passing the big rigs. when parked, along with the installed air bags up front, there is no noticeable movement inside when walking around.
