Koni Shocks

Good morning,
I have schedule service at NIRV Atlanta to install retroband and tires. Also requested Koni shocks. Got a call this morning advising me that according to Koni they do not make a shock for my unit. If someone has put Koni on a 2019 Anthem, let me know what was used.
TIA

Koni does not make shocks for all of Spartans chassis. If you did want to install them, they would have to modify the mounts to accept the new shocks.

Koni shocks

Marc,
Go to KONI web site koni-na.com
bring up RV page
enter :
2019
spartan
K2
Front 998-3234
Rear 8800-1009

I put Konis on all three axles and have never regretted it.
Also installed Super Steer motion control units. (to minimize swaying)
Also have Safe-T-Plus steering control.
Also have Rettrobands.

A Few dollars invested but the ride and secure feeling is worth it.

Safe travels...

I put Konis (front only) on my 2013 Anthem and they made a major improvement. I did not do the rears and don't see a need to. Both my 2013 and your 2019 Anthem are on the Spartan K2 chassis so I would guess the same shocks are compatible with both. If in doubt, call Spartan and ask which Koni shock they recommend. Thatís what I did.

Good evening
Talked to Spartan and only front shocks are a direct cross to Koni. I am good with that and will move forward with that change
Thanks all for the info given

When we bought our new 2019 Anthem from NIRVC in Lawrenceville, we bought Konis separately and had them install them before we took delivery. Still have the 2 brand new Bilsteins (?) If anyone wants to buy spares.
