Just finished swapping out Ford OEM shocks for Bilstein HD shocks all the way around. Got to say that I am glad that is over with because it sucked, much harder than changing out sway bars. One of these days I am gonna break down and pay someone to do this type of work for me. I even found new muscles in my hands, which are now sore.

What kind of problems did you run into? I have heard that one side (left?) is a bear to do and requires some innovative thinking for most of us shade tree types.

I had the local tire chain replace mine with their brand, "made to compete with Bilstein." After about 12k miles I am ready to replace them.

The sway bars were easy. Best handling investment I made.

For me, 2012 Fleetwood Jamboree 31M on Ford E-450, the front driver side and the rear passenger side were hard to reach. (Top bolt)
