Buy four and sell your old ones on EBay.

I too, ordered two rear shocks for our '03.

I was in Elkhart at Duncan RV getting a couple of things done when I read the other thread about Koni shocks.

I ask Duncan to put on all four, but they could only get the fronts. They told me at that time the rears were back-ordered into December.

The tech took the coach, and me, for a ride without towing the Silverado. He thought the Bilsteins were fine. I had the Koni's put on anyway.

There was a noticeable difference when I left towing the Silverado. Less bounce (we were up to about 3 undulations on the front when going over big bumps). Also less pounding and noise on the strips (on concrete) on I-80 on the way back to Nevada.

I'd think that WRV would switch to Koni shocks or, at the least, give the new owner the option.

Any known reason that a non-Alpine owner couldn't partake in this group purchase?

I only made arrangements for a group buy on that one specific set of shocks. Call Mark and ask!

I ordered at $123.00 ea. The fronts came in but the rears were on BO. So, I called and confirmed they would not honor the price after the New Year, so, I cancelled the open order and placed it with Arthur.
Thanks Danny,

Note to all:
We have a high end coach that handles well, with good shocks that is!
Change them every two or three years to keep that new coach ride.

Great. I got my front shocks already. I'll probably wait until I have all four in hand to do the install.

You need to order and pay before years end to guarantee the price.

Danny; thank you for your effort on putting this deal together! I just ordered a set for our 2002 34FDDS. It's not in need of shocks just yet, but I'll have them when it is.

OK Danny, just ordered my 4. You can cross me off the list (if you're keeping a list). Shipment in February will work out just fine as I don't get back to OR until March 1.
Thanks for your work on this.
David

Just received my new Koni rear shocks. Must have bumped up there production schedule as it was originally promised in late Feb 08.

Thanks Danny for getting this great club pricing.
