Myron, the Bilstein numbers posted by Hawksfan are the parts I put on my '08 chassis.
Other members have installed a different number shock, all around.
I guess there's more than one or two Bilstein shocks that will fit.

Thanks Ben,
I would love to have more part numbers for my files. It has been difficult to find them.

The original Monroes are not available but who would want those anyway?

In the past, I have opted for Koni's over the Bilsteins and have always been very satisfied. This coming winter, I am going to put 10 new shocks on my '07 Navigator with the Roadmaster chassis and I plan to put Konis on it with the exception of the tag. I'll save a few dollars and put Bilsteins on the tag. To be honest, I don't think that either one is going to be so much superior over the other....at least I highly doubt it. If price is a primary concern for you, then the Bilsteins are probably a perfectly good choice.

I have installed new Koni lFSD shocks in 2008 my Simba had a bad body roll this FSD shock is doing the job perfectly.
FSD stands for frequency select Damping .
Not cheap but the Bilsteins donít come close to the Koni on my unit.

Shocks

I have a 2004 HR endeavor and replaced mine with the Bilsteins and couldnít be happier. I have the same part numbers mentioned several post earlier.

I put Bilsteins on my 35 ft Newmar Dutch Star diesel pusher. I looked at the Konis and reports were that they road great except when you hit a big pothole or transition they don't absorb the shock as well as the Bilsteins. It rides very well for a coach with 16 ply 295 x 22.5 semi tires with steel rims.

Koni's are adjustable, I'm not sure about Bilstein. That at least gives you the option to adjust them to fit your ride preferences. They do have to be removed to adjust them so it might not be an option for everyone but I like how they handle the roads on my Beaver.

Bilsteins are not adjustable and are a pain to install but I like them.

They did not put a nut at the bottom of the long stud on the tops. So trying to tighten the nut down you have to somehow clamp the flattened place on top of the stud with vice grips or a wrench. Very difficult in places.

If the rear tires could be removed it would make things much easier.

I did remove the 'Hula Skirts".

Can someone explain the difference of these shocks
Thank you
I bought the custom tuned shocks from the above company. Broke both rears. Contacted them and had to purchase shock extensions from them. If your suspension is factory stock, you will find it hard to top the quality of Koni.

Iíve drive my 08 Endeavor a couple of times now including a trip over the very rough hwy 6 to the Oregon coast and the new Bilsteins made a huge difference.
