Although we don't have a Foretravel our coach was 9 years old. We upgraded to the Bilstein Comfort shocks and the ride has improved dramatically. I suspect you will get the same with Koni's.

I put Koni FSD's on my '02 Brave and it didn't make any difference at all, except my pocket is lighter.

Well I think it was just that my OEM Bilstines were not worn out. I am still chasing a poor ride. Firestone Ride Rites seem to have helped the most and I'm still playing with the pressures on them.

1995 U320, I have 137000 miles and just adjusted the shocks. Are yours red? Take the bottom bolt out, push the shock up to the stop, turn back and forth a little until it engages the adjustment detent, continue to hold it up in that detent and try to turn CC.If it won't turn it's in the full open position, if it turns count the half turns to the stop. It should have 5 or 6 half turns available. Turn back CW the number of turns you took out and add one full turn. It made a big differance in the ride>
