UPDATE

I started thinking the other day that if Workhorse will replace shocks under warranty for porpoising or side rolling, why wouldnt Ford?
I took the coach to the Ford dealer and told them I had too much movement on the OEM shocks. The ordered new shocks. Ford started using Bilsteins about 2-3 months after my coach was built.(build date 5/02) So the replacement shocks are now Bilsteins. Had them installed This past Friday. Boy, what a difference. The coach is just sooooo much firmer in curves and general ride, that it is unbelievable. So it didnt cost me a dime. If your coach is still in the 3yr 36000 mile warranty, have Ford replace the shocks freeeeeeee! I really dont think anyone will complain of the ride being too stiff. I think it just feels nice. I had the rig weighed yesterday and it is 19500lbs. I have the 228" wheel base. The ride is great and you dont pay for it!!

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>Mike, You may not have been out of pocket however your shock replacements weren't free, you already paid for them. Logic dictates that warranty work is factored in the price of the vehicle. If folks don't use the benefit, the manufacturer makes out in the long run.

It doesn't really matter just so long as you are happy with your new shocks.

Maybe I should have rephrased about them being free!! Since I had "already" paid for them in the purchase of the rig, I decided to get the product!!

I have a 98 Dolphin with a tag axile. Put new monroes all around and made a big differance. Also replaced the stering stabilizes as it was shot as well. Great ride for the price, cheaper than Bilsteins. Did the job my self and saved even more.

OK here's my 2 cents....we bought a 31' Class C in '98 prior to our current Class A. The C was on a Ford 350 chassis with the twin I beam front end. Withing 8K the front tires were cupping badly, so I got a set of Bilsteins. Ok the tires problem stopped but the set of shocks was overkill to the point that if I his a bump the rig was falling apart, the dog would puke,, you get my drift. So..after different combinations which included swapping out for the stock set, I wound up with Bilsteins on the front and Monroes on the back. So far the Class A handles OK at 15,000 miles but when I need to, I'll probably go with the Monroes.
