Koni Shocks

Does anyone know what model shock will work on a 17 K2 chassis with solid front axel?

It has been my experience that Koni is really responsive to email or even Facebook inquiries. I had a few questions when I installed my Konis on my Tiffin, and they were really helpful, much to my surprise.

Sorry I couldn't answer your question directly! GOOD LUCK!

Really makes no difference as I spent hours searching for the shocks and they were sold out and on order - wish you good luck as you search.

I ended up with the last set of Bilsteins in the USA.

PITA.

BEST OF LUCK,

ShockWharehouse has good prices but my three out of three orders from them suggest they aren't a "wharehouse" but a distributor....I have had to wait weeks for them to have the manufacturer ship the products direct each time.
So, order the shocks, receive them, and then schedule the time to swap the old ones out.

Koni Shocks vs. Bilstein

It seems every post I have read on this question agrees that Koni shocks improve the ride and handling of the coach. I have a new Ventana 40' DP with 3500 miles on it. Is it really worth while to replace the stock shocks right now? The ride now is very cushy with some sway on winding roads. I have the typical bouncing at bridges so will the Koni's improve the ride noticeably?

I recently ordered Koni's from LTB Motorsports. They had the best price and the shipping and communication was great.
