Vanawagon, if I may ask why are you replacing the Bilsteins with Koni shocks? Are you sure you have Bilsteins on it now. Check the color of the shocks and see if they are yellow on the bottom cylinder and yellow on the metal dust cover at the top of the shock OR are they yellow on the bottom cylinder and blue on the rubber dust cover on the top half of the shock. If you do have Bilsteins you may not see mauch difference or any with a Koni and will have spent all that money for nothing.

Koni has a website that helps. I ordered mine from Spartan. Seems there is a shock warehouse.com or something I looked at. Sorry I'm not any help

I changed mine from Bilstein to Koni's last year and wish I had done it sooner.

336muffin I am not on here a lot as I am working out of the country but could you expand on your reasons that you wish you had done it sooner? i have hear d from many people that Bilstein is the best to get and then I heard from an RV member of the family that Koni was the best for an RV whereas the other was best for pickups. Just curious about your reason.
Thanks

I'll second 336muffin's opinion.
I changed from Bilstein to Koni last year and was amazed at the ride improvement. No more pounding going down concrete highways no more feeling like the coach was going to fall apart on rough roads (Pennsylvania and/or Richmond in VA). Should have done this the day I bought the coach. Only regret is that I had to get the adjustable's up front and VFD's for the rear, no VFD's for my front end.
Spartan MM chassis with a 12K IFS.
