I replaced the front Monroe's at about 34,000 miles. They were completely shot!

I suspect that opinions on shocks are similar to those on tires. I had a Bounder and changed the Bilsteins for new Bilsteins and the improvement was amazing. When I bought the Camelot about 14 months ago, I thought the ride was OK but not as controlled as I thought it should be on rough, washboard interstate highways. I breathed deeply and paid $2,000 to have all 8 replaced with Koni. The ride IS definitely more controlled than before but I suspect I would have gotten the same results with Bilsteins for half the price.

Koni Shocks

Just had 10 new Koni FSD shocks put on my 07 Signature at Canyon Country in Lake Havasu City. I can not tell you what a difference these shocks made. I thought my coach rode grate before but unbelievable difference. Well worth the cost. Not sure how Blistine shocks would have performed but I am totally satisfied with the Koni's on my Signature.

Koni FSD

I had the smaller sister to yours a 2004 HR, the factory installed setup bags, tires and shocks was less than acceptable to say the least.

Koni shipped me the FSD and they made an improvement from stock, but me thinks the bags were not strong enough for this coach as well.
