I'd say go with what it has, looks to me like you got good service out of them (12+ years) or are you not happy with them?

I cannot find any numbers or information on what brand shocks it has. I went to shockwarehouse.com and not sure which kind will work?

I have not talked to a dealer yet. Do you by chance know which chassis this is considered? That would definitely help me.

I thought I saw a thread where you posted Chevy, is that not correct?



That is the info I was working off of.

Yes it is a Chevy, but when I look up air shocks it asks for the chevy chassis.. I think it is a "P30" but wasnt sure.

I think they be hydrauulic shocks, not air. Brand does' matter as much as load per axle and mounting style and sizws. A truck repair might help you. Bilsteins are very popular with RV mfgs now. P30 was very common in those days.

Sorry for the delay.

None of these are air, are you sure about the chassis and year?

It already has the air nozzle infront of both headlights to fill each air shock. It is currently at my friends shop and he is installing the shocks, but doesnt know which ones to get because there is no numbers on them.

I found these but not sure:
