First, welcome to the MOC from WA state. As for advice on the suspension,imho, it comes down as to how long you want to keep the current rig and how much you travel with it, and return on your expense.
We plan to keep our 2018 a long time and will definitely up grade to 8k IS, and disk brakes as soon as viable for us, and it is a pricey upgrade but worth it from the opinions I've seen here. For you, there may be some other options and am sure there will be input from the other MOC'ers. will be following .

I'm thinking you are talking about the LRE suspension on your rig. I replaced our rubber springs a couple years ago, thinking the rig leaning was caused by a failed rubber spring, but it turned out to be a broken leaf spring. As I had already replaced the rubber spring on one side when I discovered the broken leaf spring, I went ahead and replaced the other rubber spring. This is the link to the owners manual, which has information on how to inspect the rubber springs. http://www.morryde.com/uploads/downl...%20Updated.pdf


This is a photo of the used spring and the new one next to it, so after a number of years, the used spring had deformed some, but it was actually still serviceable and not cracked which would have made it necessary to replace it.
