We put the Koni's on our Damon Challenger and all I can say is wow! Particularly it made a huge difference with porpoising, rough pavement, as well as pavement joints. It helped with leaning/sway, but the Sumo springs (only fronts) helped more in that department. You will be very, very happy with the Koni's if they improve the ride anything like they did in our motorhome. For reference-we drove from Pennsylvania to Oregon w/ stock shocks and back on Koni's, it was sooo much nicer coming back:-)

Our Koni FSD's installed by Brazel's were a great improvement.

Not in AZ but Henderson Line-Up in Grants Pass Oregon is a Koni distributor.
Don't know if it worth buying from them and shipping.
That or try Camping World.

camping World does not sell the Koni FSD as far as I know.

Buying Koni FSD shocks from our sponsor Brazel's RV Performance or Redlands Truck Service whom are both Koni distributors in our opinion is a better personal choice.

I did not have the info at the time that there were some better places to get them but yes mine were purchased at Camping World.

I would have been happier I am sure, the fronts are FSD's but the rears
are the red adjustables.
I spoke with a person at Henderson Line-Up while at Camping World about the reds because I was sold the FSD's for the rear and the reds were being installed.
I asked about the adjustment on the red shocks and was told it should be it the center to start with, I relayed this to the Service Manager and he let the tech know....I always thought the shocks were not adjusted from the soft position they are set at from the factory.
Sure enough during Spring break I was able to get my unit in the shop and
checked them out, not adjusted at all.
Thanks for crappy service CW, I set them to full hard and like it much better, most times I will be towing a 20ft trailer with a RZR and two Sportsmans so want better suspension control.

you can also order the FSDs directly from Koni or Summit racing. Summit charges $10 shipping on all orders though.

Took my first trip after installing the Koni's on the front. I felt that my money was well invested. Will save my pennies and do the backs real soon. My big disappointment was they were made in CHINA.

I checked the old Sacks for resistance and I was very easily able to push them in and out with out any trouble and I'm a weak old man
