Roadmaster Active suspension

Anyone heard of or seen it?

Opinions?

I was looking at this site for rear-end parts and stumbled upon the suspension upgrade. I wouldn't mind a better ride, but not sure if this would provide it or not.

I am not going to buy it now anyways, but certainly want PS.org opinions..

Here is a link

havent heard of it, but i dont see it improving the ride of our trucks. We are able to carry heavy loads and therefore need stiff springs, which is a compromise when considering these heavy vehicles. I would think this would give you a stiff ride until you have more weight in the back of the truck. I have noticed after about 3k pounds in the bed i have a plush ride. When leaf springs get more weight on them they act differently. If you tow heavy loads or a lot of weight in the bed they may be beneficial, however I would tend to stick with something more of an airbag system as it is tried and true.

Hope this helps...

I have had Roadmasters on my '05 F-350 for about a year. I was hopeing that it would take out some of the "freeway bounce" that I experience in the LA area. They didn't do the job, but it keeps me more level when I am pulling a trailer.

its looks like a good idea on paper and it lookslike a more reliable design but if you want ride quality you want the adjust ability of an airbag.
