Slide in Camper Sway control

Ok we purchased a slide in camper to put on the truck. The truck has a lif on it and the sway is terrible with the camper on. Looking for advice on how to solve the problem. The camper is an 11' 6" weighs right around 2600lbs.

This is on a 99 Crew Cab 4x4 SRW with a 4" lift

Thank you for the assistance.

Can You Keep Up??

The lift is making the sway worse.

Air bags help a lot, as will lowering the truck.

do you have a rear sway bar ???

large tires and a LIFT will all but prevent you from taking out the sway...
the only REAL way to reduce the sway is to lower the truck or LOWER
the center of gravity !

TorkLift makes a kit that engages the overload springs sooner.


Get a sway bar on there if you don't already have one, that'd be the first thing I'd try.
