Default Shocks for Che 3500 chassis

Over the years I have used Bilsteins for years on cars. I am in a situation where ordering Bilsteins and finding a place to install them is not practical as I am 3,000 miles from home base. Roadtrek is getting bouncy, bouncy.
My question: Go to Chevy and have OEMs installed or go to a place like Monroe and have aftermarket shocks installed.

Thoughts or input?

Thanks,
John

Depending on the year, Bilsteins are also readily available in a short time, so that may be an option. If not, find a cheap shop that will put in some KYBs. They are firm and cheap, by comparison to Bilsteins, but won't give the smoother ride of Bilsteins. The cost will be in the 1/4-1/3 cost most places.

Default Follow up in shocks

Found Bilsteins in Tucson, $89/ea. $200 for install. Unfortunately, the place I purchased them from dod not have the lift capacity or headroom to install them. They were able to find a garage for me so it came out fine.

Certainly happy I did not compromise!
