It had 25,000 miles on it and the original shocks were Bilsteins. The FSD's totally stopped the porposing.

I agree on our last coach the ride and steering were terrible especially in windy conditions! Talk with John at Henderson Drive Line. These guys and girls have been focused on improving drivability for RV'ers for decades. Good prices and lots of free informative info.

It's like when people replace worn out tires on their auto with news ones...

"Wow, these tires are the best, whatta difference! "

Well, I hope so

I have to think this is an apples to oranges comparison to some extent. Unless someone replaces new shocks of any brand with new shocks of any other brand there is really not an easy way to make a fair, comparative judgement.

Replace old Konis with any new, reputable shock...most will probably say (Any one for a blind seat of the pants test?)

Old shocks suck...pretty simple. Replacing old shocks with new shocks will always make a big difference.
