Yup 10 days ago - they said they had one shipment come in and it went to an RV dealer in Washington - called and was put on top of the list - but -when they came in the shipment was ONE SHOCK!

STILL HAD NO IDEA WHEN OR IF!

So as the Bilsteins lasted 16 years I’ll use them again as the ones that are on have been DESTROYED by the condition of the roads.

Have a 14600front end on the mountain master just trying to see what the number that has worked is.

Then we will try to locate and install as we head back to Maryland.

Thanks for the quick reply,


Appears that the number is 24-191241

HELP!

Just spent the last three hours calling and searching every online and local dealer for front shocks - they do not exist in the USA!!!!

The roads are so BAD and they have been in such demand that no manufacturer has them in stock, thus no dealer can get them!

NOT In stock to send so............Guess we'll just bounce down the road to Maryland at 50 miles an Hour as the Roads almost all Su*K, IMHO.

so if anyone knows where I might be able to get them just let me Know.

Koni EVO 99B3234

or

Bilstein 24-191241

We are headed to Colaws used parts for Slide Out motor (KO 1336A300) and a few other things and will see if they might have a location that might just have them on the shelf.

Think if they have a late model wreck, I'd even take used shocks. - -

If you know of any solution - I will be grateful for the info.

Finding parts for these RV is just so much fun. - NOT -

Have you tried Spartan in Michigan? I had mine done last fall there. If anyone would have shocks, it would be them.

I just got a quote from Tod @ Spartan last week for Bilstein's for the front and they should have in stock. They were about $110 each. Good luck.
Got mine destroyed on way to Alaska several years ago going thru Destruction Bay & on the Chicken Highway.

Busskipper,


I just, last month, returned from a trip to Spartan (from Dallas). I had the Koni's installed on the front suspension. I was lucky that they had them in stock. I had reserved them for my scheduled inspection. A wonderful difference in ride. The tech assigned to me said the rear Bilsteins were still in good shape. (Only 15k miles on the rig.)

Like you mentioned, the highways are absolutely terrible! Dallas to Charlotte, MI and on to Des Moines for Summit Products, and then back to Dallas. So many potholes that virtually impossible to miss all of them. And, more 18 wheelers than four-wheelers. Never understood why road repairs are done with asphalt. Only lasts for a few days, then back to a pothole.
