No 9900's are only for the front, and 8800 for the rears

Thank you. Our 34' has the counterweights and does bounce some, but I have no direct comparison. I'll have to go find some uneven pavement.

If you’re still in SoCal, that should be easy.

I just I odered bilsters for the rear from frightliner. They were less expensive them online. I figured frightliner knows my weight and what shocked best match that weight.

I was experinceing a lot of rear-end roll when slowing going over bumps. Back and forth 4-5 times.

I will have my spring and suspension shop do it when they fix a squeak in my front lateral support adjuster. Plus the rear shocks are buggers to get to with the framing for the rear jacks. They are saying 100 to 200 for both shocks and squeak. 200 if they need to put in a new bushing.

No matter what brand they are, there going to be better.

For the Peak chassis/Alpine, I AGREE.


Those 99 series in front/ 88 series in back are excellent.
