shocks

Will someone please advise me where to buy shocks? Also, how do I determine what size shock do I buy? I have a '94 HR, 35ft. DP. It sounds like Koni's are the way to go. Thank you, Mike

Mike, if it were me, after deciding which brand of shock I want, I'd contact the shock manufacturer or dealer that carries that brand and they should be able to determine if they have shocks for your particular chassis.

That's what I did when I got the Koni FSD's for our Ford gas chassis.

If Koni has the FSD model that fits your chassis, I highly recommend them. They're very expensive though but in my opinion well worth the cost.

Good luck with your shocks..

I put FSD's on my coach and after a few thousand miles, they felt like the old shocks I took off. I replaced them with Road king shock absorbers for motor homes and RVs

They are a lot more expensive than the butter shocks but the ride and handling is worth it.

Any one want to buy some FSD's?

Thanks for the link, I'm looking into new shocks as well and was giving the FSD's some serious consideration. The Road King's look interesting enough to warrant further checking into.

At $400 each I passed on them!!

I have FSD's on the rear and the adjustable ones on the front set at the lowest setting. Koni doesn't make an FSD for the front 14,600# axle yet. Still getting a harsh ride, may investigate the New Bilstein to replace the adjustable Koni's with on the front
