Monaco La Palma XL Front Suspension

I own a 2008 Monaco La Palma XL, 34PPD. My front end bounces terribly when I hit bumps or depressions in the road. I've put on new Monroe shocks all the way around Any suggestions on how to improve ride?

Were you're old shocks Variable Rate or Constant rate shocks? Did you make sure to order the same struts that you took off and verify that they were indeed the right shocks?

Koni FSD shocks fixed ours. They are not cheap though!
