Best Aftermarket Shocks: Currently

I realize that there are a lot of posts regarding shocks for FR3ís. But I would like to find out which shocks are currently the best for the FR3.

I have a 2016 w stock shocks and it rides like a brick. Would like to upgrade the shocks for a smoother ride.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you,

I have a 2015 30DS. I got rid of the Factory Bilsteins and replaced them with Koni shock absorbers with Frequency Selective Dampening (FSD) technology. Absolutely love them, huge difference. Check out their website and read all about them. I bought mine on Amazon and saved some money

Agree with leisurelarry. I replaced the factory Bilsteins on the front of the coach with Koni FSD shocks and I definitely noticed a change in the ride. I just ordered Koni's for the rear. I also added Sumo's to the rear to help with sway. (I had them on the front as well but noticed it actually made the coach "bounce" a little too much for my liking so I took them off) I purchased mine through

I have experience with only two brands, Bilstien and Koni. I will continue to purchase Koni shocks even though they are more expensive than the Bilstien. They are quite effective at dampening out harmonic vertical motion without being harsh. I purchased mine off Amazon, looking for the best deal.
