Any recommendations for a shop to do the work?
We are at Cummins on an engine issue but they don't do chassis work.

You might ask at the RV park where you are staying. They usually know who is good and who is bad.

Installing shocks is NOT rocket science.

Others with the same chassis (8 outboard air bags/shocks I assume) can chime in on any unforeseen difficulties. Most installations are well within the capabilities of any shade tree mechanic with 3/4" breaker bar, 3/4" to 1/2" adapter and 1/2" drive socket. Yes, air tools makes it easier, but I have installed probably 20 sets of shocks with no air tools.

You might ask the manufacturer of the shock you choose for the name of a dealer near you.

Many can replace shocks but often have little suspension knowledge. One shop that does is Henderson's Line Up in Grant's Pass, OR and their reputation is excellent.

I knew I needed shocks and alignment. Fortunately no warn parts. I also opted for the ride along road test and glad I did. They used Koni FSD shocks on my rig and the difference was very significant.
