Bilstein B6 Heavy Duty Monotube Gas Pressure Shocks


I am looking at putting these shocks on my 2002 Pace Arrow 37 ft Motorhome (F53 Chassis).  I have read quite a bit about them and they are suppose to really improve, sway, drift, bumps and overall steering and chassis stability.  I was going to go with a Stabilizer bar but was advised by two dealers that I should really consider these because of their experience in working with F 53 chassis.  The other nice thing about these is that they are 40% less than a stabilizer bar and the installation cost. 

Does anyone have first hand experience with these shocks?  Or does anyone know an Rver that has had then installed on their RV?

 

Thanks

Big Mike,

Have the Bilstein Shocks on my 2014 King Aire RV from the factory. Not the F53 chassis but the Spartan K3GT chassis. Rides beautifully esp off road which we do a lot of on the desert trails. My In-Laws purchased a 2016 Essex which also has the Bilstein Shocks from the factory on the Spartan K3 chassis. Only diff is mine are the 60mm tubes vs their 46mm but is noticeable on the desert rocky roads but not on a paved road. Think the chassis somewhat also contributes to the stability but the Bilstein are the best shocks I have ever ridden on in 46 yrs of RVing. Would recommend them to anyone.

John

Got them installed.  Wow what a difference.  No Roll, wandering or rattling.  I am happy I went for the shocks instead of the sway bar.
