I am looking to get the front and rear shocks for my rv (8805 1018 ;1019 correct?) this Rv is new to me and but shocks on it are Bilstein's, original , i don't know. will the shocks improve the 'pushing' and 'swaying' i get when anything passes me? it just seems to be all over the road. mechanic checked front end and said it was solid but the shocks needed replacing. will the shocks give me better control? thanks

Good Morning, The Koni shocks ( 8805-1018's and 1019's ) will help the ride quality and help reduce the swaying, however they will not solve the entire handling concerns . I would take a look at our "Stage 3" suspension "kit" , I would recommend at least a rear Auxillary swaybar and a rear trac-bar to help reduce the pushing and swaying. The Safe-t-plus steering control is also good to help with wander and rut tracking, as well as providing blow-out protection.
You can pick and choose the products from that list , you can also give us a call at 800-417-4559 and ask for Ken to go over the handling and solutions. ( Support )

I own a 2019 Thor Hurricane 29M on an F53. Can I install Koni Shocks on just the front to improve the ride?
( JIm Hathaway, 04/11/2023 )
Hi Jim, you can install Koni's on just the front to improve the ride, they will give as much ride quality as the leaf spring suspension can provide. Tire inflation is another area to address , we recommend having the vehicle weighed on all 4 corners and using the tire manufacturers inflation charts ( available for most major brand tires online) .

I have Sumo springs front and rear around my 2007 day on daybreak. Will upgrading to theses koni shocks make any difference in ride quality?
( Brent Davis, 02/21/2021 )
The Koni FSD shocks will dampen the ride quite a bit better compared to a gas charged shock. You would most certainly see an improvement in ride quality. ( Support )

Will the 8805's provide much benefit over the factory shocks with Timbren's installed front and rear?
( Kevin E Poindexter, 10/12/2020 )
The Timbren's will add resistance to the suspension collapsing, so that would make your ride much more firm. The Koni shocks are aimed at making the ride softer, so if you already have Timbren's and have a gas charged shocks, I would imagine that the ride is pretty firm for sure. If you were to replace the gas charged shock with a Koni it would take some of that harshness away and give a little more control of the suspension. Your VIN calls for the 8805-1018 for the front and 8805-1019 for the rear. ( Support )

200-250 ft. lb.'s will be sufficient. ( Support )
are the koni shocks manually adjustable or internally ride control valve adjusted
( DENNIS MARBURY, 11/17/2016 )
These shocks have Frequency Selective Damping (FSD). There are no manual adjustments on these shocks. The FSD shock is firm for contorl over large bumps and corners but has a special valve that filters out annoying vibrations before they enter the coach. The result is an incredibly smooth ride, with plenty of shock left to control pitching and swaying. ( Support )
