Danny,

I'm like Gary A., we could use rear shocks only. 2000 Alpine, build date 10/99 36 FDS.

If the price is really good, I might replace the reg Koni's up front with the FSD's.

Danny,
I discovered a problem with the rear Koni 1022's.
They are 13/16" shorter than the Bilstiens when fully extended. Same as the Bilstien's when collapsed.
Front 1021's are the same as the Bilstiens both ways.
Koni rep. thought this was not a problem, but.

You guys could get them even cheaper than that if you buy enough for 60 motorhomes or $25000 you can be a distributor.

Here is my email conversation with Koni about an exact replacement for the Bilsteins. Will find out next week as my shocks are going to be replaced. Unfortunately @ $135 ea

RE: 2002 Alpine Coach 36FT
Could you confirm the correct Koni FSD replacement for the factory Bilstein shocks are as follows:

1. front - 8805-1021

2. rear - 8805-1022
Also, are these an exact length replacement for the Bilstein, is some adjustment needed for distance or ride?
Bernie Scarry

Reply:
These are FSD (frequency selective dampers) and there is no external adjustment on them. We have sold these shocks for the Alpine Peak chassis in the past with no issues.
The lengths of our shocks check out with other catalogs that have the peak chassis listed.

You should be good to go.

Regards,
Justin McCoy

After driving thru the gusty winds of the San Diego fire area Tuesday (glad it wasn't Sunday or Monday) I think I am ready for a set also. Thanks

I suspect after 50,000 miles I could use new shocks. This is the only coach I have driven so I don't know what a bad ride is.
Include me in the purchase list, 2000 alpine 38 ft. Will be in San Diego 12/15 - 01/16 currently in Spokane and will be at WRV November 13 for slide adjustment.

Danny,

Hope it's not too late to join the party. I'd like to try a full set of four on my '01 34 FDDS.

Provided, of course, that the rear shocks have sufficient travel to permit the jacks to be fully extended. Obviously one can't permit the rear wheels to be completely off the ground, but it would be a bummer if a shock came apart -- isn't that how this thread started?
