I would recommend searching at Rock Auto for your chassis...

Or the Bilstien website.

I went with Koni FSD shocks on my '2012 Chevy Express 3500 based Airstream Avenue Suite. Pricy, but very satisfied with the ride and control on uneven, twisty roads. Got them through shockwarehouse.com.

Went with the FSD's because the are NOT gas-charged. I hoped this would provide a smoother ride over small bumps and road irregularities, yet they promised ride control damping over larger uneven road surfaces. They have performed well.

I also had the Koni FSD shocks installed... plus..I had a Roadmaster anti sway bar and a Trac Bar installed made by Super Steer.....in Grants Pass Oregon....

Made a tremendous difference on handling..

On my 06 excel-ts FORD E350 I did a roadmaster antisway bar (rear), front and rear Monroe RV shocks, and new Michelin Defenders.....It already has the 2" rear wheel spacers. Also mine have Ride Rite airbags set to 60 psi

Big difference !!! Gamechanger.

I see you have the @" wheel spacers, are they for better tracking? I have a 2002 PW Exel that I have done several things to but still wants to wonder a little. I measured the front and back tire spacing, and the rear is 3" narrower than the front. I would appreciate only a response on this I have looked on different threads and haven't found anything on it.

When we bought it, it came with wheel spacers but I
Didnít know it until I took a rear wheel off meanwhile I bought wheel spacers for it. We did everything we could to make it more stable. Maybe call me and we can chat. 7804909four00
