Koni FSDs on !!!

What a difference the Konis make. WOW! Money well spent. I did all four, and I could tell the difference the first mile down the road.

I'm contemplating my next upgrade. Either a front trac bar, or a rear sway bar setup. Not sure which to do first.

The Koni's are great shocks. If you get pushed around by the wind or passing trucks I'd get the rear sway bar first.

Wish I was as happy, can't say I would do it again. After 4,000 miles, big bumps are still harsh.

The Koni FSDs really helped our ride, but I'm still displeased with the ride on rough roads. There's so much rattling. I've got the Koni FSDs and front and rear track bars. I'm contemplating the Mor/Ryde system but am having trouble dealing with the $2500 cost without some sort of guarantee it will dampen the harsh ride on rough roads. On smooth asphalt my coach rides great, but there are so few smooth asphalt roads left!

If you have steel springs then that's where the rough ride is coming from, very little a shock can do to smooth that out unless the original shock had too much compression resistance.

I don't know what kind of springs I've got . Some people have put on the Sumo springs but I've heard mixed reports when it comes to the W-22 chassis. The Mor/Ryde system is supposed to take care of this sort of thing, but I can't find anyone who has it on a W-22 for a ride report.
