Vibration in Beaver Monterey Steering Column

We have a 2006 Beaver with a Roadmaster Chassis. When driving through California on I5, we encountered two bridge decks that were 4 inches lower than the road. We hit them both really hard. The coach had been in perfect alignment and was steering well with no drift in either direction. After the hits, the steering was loose and we had vibration in the steering column.
We have taken it to a alignment shop who found no damage, and says we are still aligned properly. They stroked the shocks, and said they were all equal. Then we went to the tire balancing place and they put 10 oz. of weight on the right front. That smoothed out the ride, but we STILL have vibration in the steering column when we are on bumpy roads.
So - should we replace the shocks? The shop said they can't tell at what efficiency they are working, just that they are consistent in their rebound. We have 50,000 miles on the shocks, most of which was driven by the previous owner. The shocks are Bilsteins.
