E450 Steering Stabailizer

Anyone found a heavy duty replacement for steering stabilizer on E450 chassis ? I put a new Monroe on but it seems weak. Still not sure about putting on a Safety Steer system, that spring on the shock looks like it would put a lot of wear and tear on power steering pump

Safe-T-Plus is what we have used on our class A and Super C motorhome chassis'.

Also take a look at the Roadmaster Reflex steering stabilizer. Many good reviews.

Ford ships these E350/E450 Cutaways off the assembly line
with +3 to +4 degrees of Caster. Those settings are
OK for city driving BUT you want to have +5 to +6 degrees
of Caster for highway driving, OTHERWISE:

If too little caster exists, the car will wander and weave,
thus necessitating constant corrections in steering.

Our Greyhawk 31FS drove great off the lot, but after 7 years, it started to wonder on the road. Had to replace the factory ball joints. After replacing with greaseable Moog ball joints and an alignment, it drove better than new.

I would start with an alignment and go from there.

I have had alignment and other upgrades it drives good, thinking of better half driving adding a little more help with steering.

I installed a Roadmaster stabilizer. I took just over an hour to do. It works great and is less expensive that Safety Steer.

I also installed the Roadmaster steering stabilizer and a larger sway bar. Then had the front end aligned...what a difference.

X2 - with the exception of the alignment. The combo of the two parts works so well together !!
