Thanks all, I'm going to defer until I get more suitable quotes. The difference in repair facilities is pay the piper cause he's only 6 miles away or travel 2 1/2 hours.

Thanks again.

I just recently added a steering stabilizer to my 28DS. Found a couple of youtube videos and went at it. took me about 45 mins but that was mostly because of being OCD and having to look at the video again and again to get a "feel good" about whether or not I did it correct. Actual install time was probably less than a half hour.
I've also seen the videos on YT on shock replacement and it too does not look like anything I could not handle. I'm a bit "big" so most of the problem is getting into tight areas under there or just into weird positions to get at some of the bolts.

I would. Not replacing the bilsteins though, they're just fine for us.

I do want to add Sumos though...

I was considering Sumos, and the dealer recommended Koni's instead, I followed his advice, and I think they made a significant difference for a little over $800.00. Problem is, most improvements are subjective. I did the CHF , alignment 90psi, and I am happy. If I decide to spend another $1500 bucks I'll go for the Sumos.

Happy Trails, Forrest
