How to Reduce Sway on a 2016 Ram 2500 with a Lance 820 Truck Camper


Hello, I have a 2016 Ram 2500 and a Lance 820 truck camper. I am have the Firestone airbags that I purchased from you and just ordered the anti sway bar. The sway in this truck is terrible, it terrifying. The camper is rated for this truck. What else can I do? Can I add an extra spring? Please help, I love this camper and truck but I am terrified at this point to drive it. Thank you,

With how the Firestone Air Helper Springs, like the # F2706, will attach to the frame, you would not be able to install a Timbren # TDR2500D as well. Both of these options will mount in the same place, unfortunately. That being said, the # TDR2500D may be better for your situation than the air bags. I do typically suggest air bags as they are fully adjustable, but they can be a little lacking when under constant heavy load and are not as good at handling sway problems.

Another upgrade you may want to check out is the SuperCoils # SSC-52. These would stiffen up the rear end a bit more and will help with sag and sway issues.

With all that being said, the anti sway bars, like the Roadamster # RM-1129-135, may also solve the issue you are having as well. Once they are installed and dialed in, test everything out. If you are still having a lot of sway, try the Timbren system. Odds are you will be good to go though.
