2015 Forester MBS - New Shocks

I'd like to upgrade the shocks on my new RV. My goal is to have it be both smoother on small bumps, Highway Expansion Joints and firmer in cornering. Not sure if I should get Koni's or Bilstein's. I have also heard that "maybe" the Sprinter is stock with Bilsteins on the front, not sure what is on the rear. I also plan on upgrading the Sway Bar to the Hellwig 7254.

If anyone has some experience or advice, it is greatly appreciated !

Thanks !

Danny

Koni Reds seem to get good reviews, but it might be worth calling the Sprinter Store as I've heard they have good advice on suspension mods. If you don't have them, the best mod I've done on my Forester MBS 2491R is both front and rear Sumo Springs.

We have a 2013 Solera S and have upgraded the sway bar, Bilstien shocks all around and Sumo springs as well. Has greatly improved the handling and the ride. ALOT less sway which DW really appreciated.
