Shocks

Want to change shocks, how do I determine what chassis I have.
Thanks
Rich

My chassis manufacturer's name is on the, weight rating info decal , on the lower inside wall next to the drivers seat belt.

For info on the shocks that originally came on your coach you can call the manufacturer's help line ; with your serial number; and they will give you the original part number , and you can cross reference that number.

Spartan Motor home support

EDIT: I guess I should have asked this first.
Is your Dutch Star on a gas or diesel powered chassis ?
In coaches of our vintage Newmar used the Dutch Star name on both

Isn't there a logo on your steering wheel, dash or front hubcaps? I would guess it's a Spartan chassis being of that vintage.
