Need a source for 2001 Alpine shock Part numbers...Bilstein and Koni

Can anyone help out on shock absorber part numbers for a 2001 40' FD Alpine. I've called Bilstein, Camping World, PPL, etc....I'm out of ideas. It maybe in the archives somewhere, but I haven't been able to locate it..

Thanks...

Most grateful Steve thanks.

Do you know if the shocks for the 36 ' and the 40' Alpine are the same? ...and WHERE did you get these numbers ? I looked everywhere I could think of...

From the Alpine Coach Forum page you can do a "Search this Forum" on
Koni Bilstein
Koni shocks
Bilstien shocks
Shocks part number
etc.
and you'll find what's been posted over the years. The first search returned 9 threads, one of which ran 67 posts and in which there was an organized mass purchase of shocks. Ain't the internet great?

Yes it is...and especially this forum, it has been a Godsend several times already.

I saw the mass purchase on Konis...but didn't see info regarding part numbers on Bilsteins. ... and I needed to know if the numbers mentioned for Konis were correct for a 2001

Stan - I don't know for sure if 40 and 36 foot Alpines have the same shocks but I believe they do. I got the numbers from the ones I replaced a few years ago...I replaced the Bilsteins with Konis.

Stan,

I can tell you for certain that 2001 36' and 40' Alpines use the same shocks. A few weeks ago, me (36') and two of my friends (40') installed new Konis and changed our brake fluid in all 3 coaches in 1 day. Started at 7:30AM and finished at 10:30PM. All 3 of our coaches are 2001's.

Jeff

Update: It looks like Bilsteins 60mm shocks are going to fit the front of my Alpine.
These are the same size as Roadkings and will be tuned for these coachs.

FYI, put Koni shocks on at 60,000 miles when we did the mass purchase. The damping effect failed late last year. Put replacement Koni shocks on in May at 133,000 miles and Koni replaced the shocks for free as they are lifetime shocks and it cost me $125 in labor. Like the koni's better than OEM bilsteins. Have to follow Koni warranty procedure to the letter, but it works.

I finally got my new shocks on, and decided to go with the Koni's...NICE!

Part numbers above are correct with the Bilstein F4-B46-2093-M1 being the number for the Fronts.

"Don't know which is front and rear." F4-B46-2092-M1 would be the REARS.
