Just finished a 3500 mi. trip with my new Konis. This was the first outing since I installed them...thanks for negotiating a great price Danny. Travelled through NM, West TX, all over the CO Rockies, NV, to Tahoe and back to S. CA. General ride and handling seemed about the same as the original. Also noticed what appeared to be a tire balance problem now that I never noticed before. The key test though was when I hit a certain dip/bump on the highway near home. With the old shocks the coach would bounce violently to the point where it appeared the front wheels left the ground on the first bump. It would then bounce several more times before settling down. The first time I descovered the bump (at 60 mph) I was scared that damage was done somewhere. Since then I have taken the bump at about 40 mph with no severe bouncing. I put the Konis to the test, although I was scared, at 60 mph and was very pleasantly surprised. One quick "thump" that I hardly noticed was the result. It was smoother than what I feel on my Jeep Liberty. Certainly made the installation worth while. Don't know why wheel balance is more noticeable now but that is another issue I guess.
