Yes it will certainly help. Three schools of thought on best shocks
Koni-great shock, very expensive

Bilsteins-very good shock, much cheaper than Koni

All the rest-O.K. shocks, cheapest replacement costs.

JMHO

Koni's

I had a huge porpoising problem at bridge and concrete expansion joints. Also some excessive swaying from crosswinds. I installed the Konis with just over 20K miles on the rig. Still have that first bounce but she settles down in a hurry and most of the crosswind effect is now tolerable. W-22 chassis as well. After 3 years, they're still getting the job done. Shox.com @ $600 and change for the FSDs.

That is the "only" reason I don't have them on, Maybe Santa will be good this year.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and Travels,

We replaced all our shocks with Bilsteins. Koni's might be better but I couldn't see the difference in cost. JMHO!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!



MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Might I refer you to Brazels RV best price plus free shipping going on right now. I have no interest in this place but will order mine from here when I can afford the Konis. My old gal deserves the best.

I agree with the Bilsteins, they are the best for the price. Maybe not as good as Koni, but with lifetime warranty and much less on the cost, I believe they are the way to go. I have them on my pickup and love them.
