SumoSprings will definitely help to improve the ride of your 2018 Forest River FR3 29DS.

For your Ford F-53 chassis with an 18,000 lb GVWR you want part # SSF-170-40-2 for the front axle and part # SSR-184-40-1 for the rear axle. The two greatest things about about the SumoSprings is that they do not require drilling for the installation and once the installation is complete there is no maintenance that needs to be done.

You can also install Front # RM-1139-140 and Rear # RM-1139-146 anti-sway bars as well as a steering stabilizer # RM-RBK22-RSSA which also help to level your ride while reducing driver fatigue. These will help to fight crosswinds and passing motorists, plus help you keep your FR3 in line and turn much easier.

Some installation videos and details have been linked for you to check out.
