    Suspension Upgrade

    I just upgraded my 2610ML suspension to the MORryde CRE3000-35 by myself. Just wanted to post to say that it's possible to do this as a one man project but I'm not sure it's for everyone. I used two jack stands and a bottle jack and it took five hours total for both sides. One thing I would have done differently is use a bigger hammer because the existing bolts are hard to remove. One other thing I would do differently would be to get a cushion to sit on. My butt was sore for two days.

    Thanks for this post. I have all the parts for my LCI Road Armor upgrade. I keep going back and forth between me doing it or taking it to a good tire/suspension shop here locally to have it done. Now I'm back to me doing it. Especially since I have all the jack stands, bottle jack, and floor jack. And I have a really BIG hammer!

    Well I'm 72 so there is hope for us old farts. With the $350 I saved I bought a lock from RVLocks, some butt cream and 2 cases of imported beer.

    I had the LCI Road Armor installed this past week. Had a local shop do it as my mechanics helper (my DW) wasn't feeling it and felt paying someone was better than burning what probably would have been most of a weekend for us.
    We took the trailer back to storage Friday which is a 25 mile trip. While it isn't a long drive, I could tell the difference in the ride. Bumps the trailer would transfer to the TV were now gone. There were areas where there was small 'porpoising' and now there is none.

    Withe the new GY Endurance tires and suspension upgrade I'm very happy!
