96 Dolphin GM Chassis Shocks

I've had my Dolphin for a year and a half now. Added and repaired small stuff since I got it. Put in new air bags in the front springs and on our last trip it seemed to porpoise more(no pun intended) when you would go over large humps in the road at cruising speed (60mph plus). Some have suggested replacing the shocks, they appear to be original equipment, no oil leaks. Any opinions on brand?

Thanks,
Mike Layton

On my 96 P30 chassis I put Koni FSD shocks all the way around - it's a much nicer ride (and handling) now.

I forgot to mention that mine has airbags also, which I run at 60lbs.
