Old Scout - in my case the new shocks made a huge difference. The shaft seal on the right rear shock was blown out and it leaked fluid. Whenever I drove down a driveway and initiated a turn, the coach rocked side-to-side. Didn't that before the shock blew, doesn't do it now.

Interesting--guess I will have to reassess my earlier decision not to replace the back shocks!

I can relate. I was certain from the seat-of-the-pants feel that I needed new front shocks. I was going to replace the fronts only. But, I fell into a good deal for a full set of Konis. After my talk with Bob Henderson and then seeing the condition of the old shocks when they were removed, I'm really glad I replaced all four.

BTW - I spoke to Bob at a picnic table which we shared over lunch, not in a vendor booth. He wasn't selling me anything, just sharing his experience with Alpines. He was very familiar with Alpines.
