Question 2000 Ford F53 Rear Shocks

I have a 2001 National Tropical on the Ford F53 chassis with a tag axle.
My local repair center has front shocks, however he has been unable to locate the proper shocks for the rear (drive axle). Any info on parts would be greatly appreciated..

I'm not sure if the tag makes a difference, but I had a 2000 HR 36' Gasser and when I went through the suspension, brakes, bearings, rotors and shocks, all the parts were the same on all 4 wheels, except the rear bearings. The shocks were the same on all 4 corners and Rock Auto had all the parts in stock.

Currently they are showing different part numbers front and rear but do have Monroe's in stock

I have a 2004 F53 20,500lb chassis. I put the KONI FSD shocks on all the way around and they made a HUGE improvement in the ride.

I bought them here:
https://www.ultrarvproducts.com/Koni...3-Rear-(98-19)
It looks like the same shock fits the rear on all the F53 chassis' from 1998 on.


Koni 8805-1019

Description:
Koni Frequency Selective Damping (FSD) shock absorbers provide superior handling characteristics without compromising ride comfort. The FSD is firm where you need it, such as through corners, but rides soft over expansion joints and rough roads. A special valve filters out annoying vibrations before they enter the vehicle, resulting in a smooth ride over a variety of road surfaces.

Applications: Ford F53 Rear (1998-Current)
