I replaced the shocks on our W-22 chassis with the Koni FSD. Gone were the porpoising at bridge and concrete expansion joints. They also did away with most of the 'roll' from passing semis. I got the recommendations from many on this site...they were right.

Another vote for Koni FSD's. I've had both...the Koni's offer a better ride IMO.

We went with Bilstiins from Source Engineering.
Love the ride for our coach.
Never had Koni so cannot comment on those.
Here is a test done a while back on 4 brands of shocks, Koni and Bilsiens included.
I doubt I attached it correctly, but gives you the link.

Another vote for Bilsteins, put them on my last Class C and it really improved the ride.
