Mor-Ryde RL system for pickup truck


I'm still trying to find a way to soften the non towing ride of our F350 diesel dually.

I'm  looking at the Mor-Ryde RL system for the drive axle and am wondering if anyone in the group has it, or knows anyone who has experience with it.

Here's the link.  http://tinyurl.com/2qf83m

Any comments, or alternatives would be more than welcome.

A few months ago I took a short test drive in a new 2006 Chevy 3500 Duramax, DRW and was very surprised with the smooth and quiet ride.  Admittedly, it was a short drive on city streets, but I did not feel that the ride was harsh at all.  I was fully expecting it to feel like a truck, but it rode like a nice luxury automobile!

I didn't check closely as we are not ready to buy yet, so I don't know if it had some type of aftermarket add-on to soften the ride.  Since it was a new one at the local Chevy dealer I assume it had the standard factory suspension.

Before we make a decision I'll go back and take a longer test drive and include getting on the interstate to see how it feels.  

Hopefully someone will give you some feedback on the Mor-Ryde RL system.

Hey Fred,

Several years ago we owned an Avion fiver.  The suspension was pretty bad and it was all over the road, especially yaw.  Typically would blow 4 or 5 tires in a summer's travels

Previous Avion pull trailers came equipped with a Mor-Ryde suspension and there was very little vibration and the rig handled quite well.  We replaced the fiver's suspension with a Mor-Ryde and we were very pleased with the results.  No more blow outs either. We could place a glass of water on the floor near the mid entry and 300 miles later it was still there.  I know that some fivers come with a MorRyde pin box to smooth some of that ride. 

That being said, while I am sure that the MorRyde will help your truck, it is still a heavy duty truck and it may not be enough.

Fred,  We had the Mor/Ryde RL suspension installed on a GMC 3500 1 ton dually at Mor/Ryde in Elkhart Ind.   We only used it for a very short time, it did seem to help when we weren't towing.   But when we were towing I don't think it help very much.   But keep in mind we didn't give it a fair test.   We had a problem with the harsh ride when going over the concrete dividers, and we were trying to lessen the hard bumps.   We traded the 3500 and now have a Link Air ride suspension and Air ride seats.   I believe the Air rides seats is what makes our Chevy Kodiak ride so much better than the 3500.   GBY....
