Shocks for 2007 Phaeton

I recently purchased a 2007 Phaeton 40' QDH. I have since replaced all tires with Michelin and other minor repairs. My two concerns are what type of shock came on this motorhome and if anyone else has a concern about the smoothness of the ride. Even after new tires I still feel the road through the steering wheel. Not bad but not what I expected. I'm thinking of replacing the shocks with Bilstein. Any ideas or suggestions.

I used to own a 2007 Phaeton QSH. The first suggestion I have is to get four corner weights. Adjust air pressure according to Michelin's inflation charts. Lots of info on shocks including part numbers available at Tiffin RV Network. I believe Sachs were the OEM shocks and the Bilsteins seem to be the preferred replacement.

Do a little research on Koni, shocks. Not affiliated in any form, give Henderson Drive Line in Oregon a call. Google them up, they specialize in all phases of chassis maintenance. Ask for John Henderson, chance you might get him. A family business for several decades.
