shock replacements

1998 Jayco Eagle 283g with a Ford E450 superduty. I am wanting to replace shocks but have no idea what to buy. Help?

I would go with a set of bilstein shocks that is what jayco upgrades the new greyhawks with.

Spend the extra money and go with KONI's. Best ride you'll ever get. That's what's going on my CHEV as soon as the 24 months is up.

childers, you've posted your 5W question to the class C forum. You might get more responses in the correct forum.

Grumpy, looked it up and you're right. Today Eagles are 5Ws…name can cause confusion. All that said I had put Bilsteins on my pusher. Was very satisfied with the results.

I put the KONI's on our 08 SENECA (Kodiak) as did many others with the older SENECAS and the ride/handling difference was amazing.
