Koni FSD Shocks

Any experience with how Koni FSD shocks ride (smooth, hard) on a DP Freightliner XC?

They will provide a firmer ride and eliminate your front end bouncing in and out of driveways etc.

Thank you for responding. I have a very hard, jarring ride now. Every bump, crack, in the road is like my RV is going to fall apart. I also have huge leaning left and right in and out of driveways.

When you say firmer do mean a hard ride because I want to avoid a hard ride?

I just put them on our Southwind and a really like them. Not jarring at all.

Shocks have nothing to do with left to right leaning on driveway entrances.

Happy With My Bilsteins I put on. Was not happy with the factory Sachs. I'm sure the Koni's will also be a great improvement.


My Factory shocks were extremely easy to compress when I took them off. They were not old and had very few miles. My opinion is change them you will be happier, it will get rid of a lot of the body roll you discribe.

I started with Sachs and removed them when we purchased the MH with Bilsteins. The Bilsteins improved the ride, however the front end bouncing was still there. I finally installed the Koni's and I am satisfied. Firmer meaning NO more bouncing and corners much better (at slow speeds of course).
