Bilstein cross for 24-186605 front shocks
 
Found a leaky Bilstein on our 2008 HR Endeavor, front end.

The shocks seem to be backordered everywhere.

Anyone have the dimensions off hand for a cross reference?? Just a thougth.

I have spent a lot of time trying to find a replacement.

Don't get me into changing out four shocks because you think Konis are the best thing since sliced bread. :angel:

The Bilsteins have served me incredibly well and were designed on our coaches and tested nearby on some very rough roads.

Thanks for any help.

This doesn't have actual dimensions, but it does have a few specs that may be of interest. Somewhere, I have a PDF of the entire bilstein catalog but can't seem to find it. This does have a cross reference for other part numbers that may be of help. These guys say ship on 2-3 weeks, but that may not be in your timeline.

Thanks. Found that page and grabbed the dimensions shown. I took the bad one off and have measured it. Guessing a bit on the compressed length but should be really close.

Everyone shows out of stock and I have actually looked many times over the past few years. I am hoping someone has come up with a decent replacement. The original Monroes are not available either of course.

For Bilstein shocks you might try Source Engineering in Veneta, OR. When I was there in late April they had pallets of Bilstein shocks in their shop. They specialize in suspension work for the Roadmaster chassis and are knowledgeable and passionate about Bilstein shocks. Worth a try..

Great Idea. I just didn't think of them for some reason. I have bought many things from them. Ride enhancement valves, sway bars, fan.
