Smile Gulfstream Class A Crescendo 8386 Shocks

My 2007 Gulfstream Crescendo 8386 with a 2006 Workhorse R20 Chassis needed new shocks, but finding those replacement shocks has been quite the adventure. Workhorse and GM state that the OEM shocks are no longer available and none of the usual outlets (auto or RV) list a replacement for them. I took one of the front shocks off and was able to find a Gabriel brand name on it with two sets of numbers (T601120BB and 7805-W-1011). I called Gabriel and the shocks were discontinued and no longer available. None of the shock manufacturers (Bilstein, Koni, Gabriel, and Monroe) show any cross reference numbers for them, but Monroe was able to find one based on the measurements and corner load rating. The front shocks are Monroe 65107 Gas Magnum 65 and range in price from $57.00 each on Rock Auto to $81.00 at Napa. I'll post what I find for the rear shocks when I get them off the RV. I hope that helps others and keeps you from having to do a bunch of research. Koni was still looking so if I hear something I'll share that. Bilstein and Gabriel just flat out said they couldn't help me out.
