You only need to upgrade the rear shocks. The Oem front struts work well with the support from the front sumo springs. I used the heavy duty Bilstiens in the back, 24-177702 on my 2014 chassis. Don't bother with shock upgrade until you have sumos front and rear. The shocks are easy to put on , 2 bolts each side. You don't have to jack up vehicle. Just use a strap to partially compress the gas charged Bilstiens. Bolt the top first and slowly let out the strap until the lower bolt hole lines up then tighten.

Hi Rich one more thing about Bilstein shocks. Amazon and a few other sites keep saying 24-177702 Bilstein rear shocks only fit 2002-2012 Sprinetr RV. Do you think for sure they will work for mine?

Look on the bilstien site under motor home, sprinter. They fit my 2014 chassis. You could call bilstien to confirm. Some of the shock sites don't seem to update as the years go by.

Thanks Skip and Rich for this post. I've mounted front and rear sumo springs plus bilstein rear shocks on my sprinter yesterday. I drove it around for awhile and all I can say is "WOW". Thanks
