At least that's what they said. Were they trying to screw me? I have an appointment in 2 days with campingworld to get Bilsteins installed (I already bought them). I'm also getting steer-safe installed. I will be a very unhappy camper if I find out that Workhorse should have changed the shocks

Bella, the following is a quote form an earlier posting from Driver

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> You can either tell your dealership that you are having a problem with this OR you can choose to have your shocks replaced on your own.

Some members here have had 4 shocks replaced under warranty however the majority have only had the front shocks replaced. WCC won't normally replace the rears. I chose to replace my rears so that I would have a matched set of shocks. I run Monroe RV Magnums on all 4 corners. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

There is a lot to it if you are going to persue Workhorse on the issue. If you are unhappy with the dealer response you can call workhorse and explain the situation, remember being nice goes a long way. I had mine replaced (front only) at a workhorse service center. They are warranted for three years (as is the chassis). But - it has to meat certain quidelines estabilished by of course workhorse. If indeed the service center finds that they are in need of replacement then it can be done. But one of the criteria has to deal with weight ratio. You will have to have your coach weighed front and rear and total. They will use this figure with a formula they have to see if you meet the requirements established. It has a lot to do with how you load your motorhome. It must be heavier in a percentage in the front than the rear, if you load it too heavey in the rear then it becomes your responsiblility, as this means that you are leaving the front too light and that is also one of the causes of porpoising. If you feel you are right then it will take some time but then presue it. But remember Workhorse will only replace (normally) the front and only with Monroes. Personally I like the Monroes better, I then paid to have the rear replaced also. I feel the bilstines are too stiff, but many like them. If I could afford it I would go with the adjustable Koni's.
Hope this helps. Bob

Bella, being this is a workhorse issue you probably would get a better response in the Workhorse forum further down the main page.

Did we ever find out what "Four-way shocks" for the front are?

I have an 04 chassis. Will the Monroe part numbers you list thru 03 fit my 04?

Later model WCC chassis come with Bilstein as the standard shock absorber however the Monroe part numbers provided will work through the current model year.

The Monroes should work very well for you.

The rear shocks on some 2004's and newer are different.They have a pin top & bottom,as opposed to pin bottom eye on top.
