Shocks for 1997 Safari with leaf springs

I am trying to find out what shocks fit my 1997 Safari Sahara Magnum with LEAF SPRINGS. I checked with Monaco and they were not very helpful. They look like Bilsteins but I cannot see any numbers on them. Does anyone have any experience with these? Info on any brand would be helpful.

I climbed under and found they are Monroe shocks with these numbers rear 6969 front 6878. I cannot find these listed anywhere.

I plan on going with Konis front and back on my 82 PA suppose to be the top of the line. My 2nd would be the Bilstiens. You can email Koni and get prices but they are the most expensive there. I checked into a place but now I can't remember where but it started with a S, hes a sponsor here I think, but his shop had the best prices so far.Hopefully someone coming along can offer more assistance.

I went with Konis's, but then again my coach is a Velvet Ride. Go to either Safari Yahoo website and search the messages for part numbers.

Six years ago, I put Monroe's on my "87 PA. You have to look at the Monroe truck catalog. I couldn't find my rear shocks listed anywhere, so I printed off the Monroe catalog, and compared sizes until I found a comparable size for the 4 rear shocks. Monroe's are definitely less costly than Koni's or Bilstein's. Eddie Elk.
