Re: smooth ride possible?

By the mid-90's many buses were coming with air ride. That's a start, but beware that there is a whole lot more to go wrong with air ride than leaf springs. If she gets motion sickness easily I'm not sure an air-ride seat is what she wants. They take the harshness out, not to movement out.

The above post is correct, I took the air ride base out of mine on the drivers side because I didn't like all that bouncing up & down...
