Look at your bus data tag.
If your Front Axle is 10 or 12K lbs
And you Rear Axle is 20k or so
Stay under those and your fine, if you go above your axle rating, something on your bus is going to break at some point and it won't be pretty. In fact it could be very very not pretty.
Beside, if you go over your axle weight limit you may be over your road legal weight limit.
Currently, your bus springs and so forth are set up to carry your max axle limit. They only thing that may help is some type of sway bar.
Do replace your shocks, they are always over looked unless leaking and you may be pleasantly surprised at there cost.
