I can tell you that Justin McCoy is here in Pomona at the FMCA Convention-- not at Koni office.

Suspect he will be back in the office next week.

I just visited with Justin McCoy in the Koni booth here at the FMCA Convention and confirmed:

Correct part numbers for all Peak Chassis/Alpine coaches:

Fronts: new generation 99 series 99B3209

Rear: FSDs. 8805-1022

If you are here at the convention, I know Redland's has some in stock here at the show.

Looking through the previous posts and I cannot see anyone who has put 99 series on a 40' let alone an Apex. The biggest I see is 38'. Right now I have 15,000 miles on the Koni front 8805-1021. I know WRV used a one size fits all shock for the 34' to the APEX. With the Apex weighing over 13,000 pounds on the front axle, they were not much improvement over the Bilsteins. I know the 99 have not been out that long to have very long road tests yet. Has anyone tried them on 40' yet and seen any improvement?

I have a set on order, but they are on back order to be shipped by end of the month. I hope to have them installed before I leave middle of May. They are for my 2005 40 FDQS, after riding flipper across I-10 the DW & I ready for a smoother more controlled ride. I have the 99's ordered for the front & 1022's for the rear! I hope they are worth the cost & wait time! Maybe I will be able to report back by June 1st on the ride.

I have got my new Koni 99' & 1022 from Redlands. The Koni shop in Ky had put them on backorder. So I checked with Redlands they shipped them the same day. The Alpine is in shop for other warranty work, I hope to get them installed once the other work is finished. Good bye to Flipper!! Will update when install is complete and the ride and drive has been checked!!

Ralph,

I have no doubt the ride will be great. So was the ride with my 88's when I first got them. The only problem with them was for how long. Hopefully the 99's will last longer than the 88's. Every indication is that they will last longer.

However, too late for me. I switched to Road King's a year ago. Still great so far.

Well we can tell Flipper were to go now!! Good bye Flipper!!!! The Koni's are installed & what a great ride & drive! This is what the Alpine is all about. If you are near Tulsa and need shocks or brake work done I would suggest Tulsa Auto Spring. A great team of Mechanic's that got the job done quick & at a very good price for the install. Less than $130 dollars for the job. But hey after buying the 99's and the 1022's it was nice to get a break. Further driving will tell the story but I have no doubt of very much improved ride!! Adis Flipper!!

Hi Ralph

How bad were the 1022s that they took off and how many miles did they have on them? I got the 99s for the front but I didn't change the rear ones. Maybe I should! Less than 130 for 4 shocks was a bargain I can tell you as I paid that for just the front ones!!

Geoff

When I replaced mine about 4 years ago I had 1021s for the front and 1022s for the rear. What are the 99s?

Hi Steve

The 99s are the new Koni shocks for the front that replace the 1021s. They are considerably more substantial . They made a big difference when I had them put on. The question now is how long will they last as it seems the 1021s only lasted around 20000 miles.

Geoff, I didn't get to see the old one's after removed, but the ride & control is so much better. The labor cost was quite a good surprise!! We had clothes falling out of the closet with the hangers, flipper can stay in CA on I-10.
