Koni Shocks

Has anyone put the Koni adjustable shocks on your coach? If so what is the part number front & rear and where did you get them. I have e-mailed koni but no answer received back.

Could be wrong--dont think Koni makes adjustables for our coaches--part numbers 1021 and 1022 for Alpiner --not adjustable.....

I see you also have 40'. In my opinion the stock Bisteins aren't heavy enough for the 40'. I know the Apexes are heaviest and I put the Koni 1021 and 1022 on mine. They are a big improvement and they are adequate, I wouldn't want any less shock or an adjustable even if they made them.

I have the adjustables on my coach.

The fronts are: 88 1680 4804
The rears are: 4305

The way my shocks are rotated, I could not make out the first series of numbers on the rear shock, but assume they would be the same.

I think I bought the shocks in the '04-'05 time frame.

When I look at the Crossover list on the Koni site, I do not see these numbers. Maybe a phone call would yield some results if desired.

IIRC, Koni went from their popular adjustables to their current FSD (frequency select damper) style shocks which are self-adjusting, several years ago.

Check out their RV-specific website http://www.konirv.com/

About 5 years and 40K miles ago, I put on the Koni FDS shocks. For about the last year the coach was bouncing and rebounding way too much so decided to test Koni's lifetime warranty. I did the advance purchase option. Installed the new Koni's and sent the old ones back for inspection. After about two weeks I was notified that Koni accepted the shocks for the warranty, my CC was reimbursed for the charges for the new Koni's, and the old shocks went in the garbage. If anyone that has installed the Koni FDS shocks is having problems, I'd highly recommend visiting their website for how to access their warranty.
