    I used both steel sidewall tires, such as Michelin XPS RIB, AND rear aftermarket sway bar. These added as much stability as possible. Also, used heavy duty Bilsein shocks. In hindsight, should have used heavy duty on the front and standard on rear.All this was on a '98 E450 class C.

I installed Bilsteins on my 2004 E450 based Class C and they helped reduce sway noticeably. However, the most significant improvement came after replacing the OEM sway bars with Hellwigs. The coach now rides essentially flat.

you could try replacing the shock absorbers, use a stiffer/firmer shock. ( check out "bilstein" shocks). inspect the sway bars, look at the rubber mounts, make sure they are still in good condition. Or maybe install a aftermarket sway bar. also see if you can adjust the ride height of the suspension. I can adjust the ride height on my 89 Mark VII. up or down.
