Just back from the tire shop and it seems the new tires are already better down the road. I assume they’ll only get better with more miles on them. Just as an FYI, these are the tires we went with: CONTINENTAL HYBRID HD3. Not as aggressive, but we’re not going off-roading with the bus. Just as long as it can get us down a dirt road or two now and again.
In regards to the shocks, they look as old as the bus and are definitely worth a look before we throw any money at anti-sway bars and such. —a good call, so thanks for that, and thanks to all the others who’ve taken the time to provide feedback.
