    I just made a post regarding a lift kit for my new (used) Jayco tent camper. However, once I got under the camper and started looking, I am confused as to how the suspension works. There are NO springs or coils and it almost appears that there is no suspension (Unless it is a torsion bar suspension with the torsion bar runing through the axel). There are no torsion bars running up to the front of the camper. The camper is a 1988 Jayco Jayking 6. It is very large for a tent camper with a box that is almost 14'and weighing just under 2000 lbs. It must have a suspension - right???? :question: :question:

    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    I now have the answer to my own post: the 1988 Jayco JayKing does have a torsion bar suspension that does, indeed, run down the axel. According to the tech I talked to, it is a more advanced and preferrable system to the standard leaf spring setup. However, once it wears out, he said it is very expensive to replace. :)
