I asked this question on another thread, but thought it might warrant a thread of it's own:

I just bought a 2006 FR Sunseeker. It is built on a '05 Ford E-450 chassis. After driving it for almost 3000 miles, I am very, very disappointed with the quality of the ride. It just about beat me to death. Can anyone offer some advice based on their own experinces?
Thanks.

As a starting point, take your rig to the scales and weigh it. Get seperate front and rear weights. You may have too much pressure in the tires for what you're carrying or the wrong pressure front to back. Ever see an empty 18-wheeler bouncing down the road? Same thing. Inflate your tires according to the weight your carrying; not the maximum. Your owners manual and/or tire manufacturers recommendations should always be followed.

Okay...Thanks. Now where do I find the weight vs psi figures? Is there a table somewhere?

Those inflation/load tables are usually on the respective tire manufacturer's web site. Here for example is Good Year's.
