...not according to the Koni website or the Koni tech I talked to last year during my warranty swap-out.....look forward to being proved wrong though.....In fact, I just installed 1022s on the rear of my 03--no instructions or guidance on adjusting the FSD were in the box ....Curious--have you ever tried "adjusting" your 1021/1022 FSDs?

You don't suppose there were no instructions to adjust them because they're not adjustable?
My rear FSD's didn't come with any instructions because they can't be adjusted, my front, red, adjustable ones did have instructions though.

MR D--I see you have a Newmar product...according to the Koni website, the only Koni shock shown for the Alpine Peak Chassis is the FDS {gold}--perhaps the red adjustable shock comes in a spec that meets the older Alpines--but you have to ask for it--interesting??

We have a Spartan MM chassis with a newer 14,600# axle, Koni doesn't make an FSD for that axle so they sent me the adjustable ones. They were better than some of the Bilsteins they sent me to try but then they sent me a set of Bilstein Comfitrack. I just put them back on last week to check them against the Koni's again. I only drove the Bilsteins about 300 miles so I'll try them again
I tried about 5 or 6 sets of shocks so far and the adjustable Koni and the Comfitrack I just put back on were the best.
Can't really tell much difference with the FSD's in the back though.
Here is Koni's web site onthe operation of the FSD's: http://www.koni-na.com/fsd-frequency...ve-damping.cfm
