Need to upgrade front shocks.

Iíve got a 2014 Sportsmobile 4WD Ford EB350. I bought it new and itís got 92k on it. Lately, itís getting really jittery when I hit bumps - especially at highway speeds. A lot of bounce and rebound. Kinda scary. I think I need to replace the front shocks. Iím off road a lot and I drive a lot of high speed highway to get there. Whatís a good upgrade?

I think you can still get the custom valved Fox shocks through Sportsmobile.
The other option is Bilstein, thereís a thread somewhere referencing part numbers, but you can cross reference with your current shocks. You should replace all 4, including your steering dampener, thereís comfort and HD versions, which are valved for larger motor homes, if youíve got a heavy build and/or an EB you should consider the HD, otherwise comfort should be fine.
Have your ball joints and tie rod ends looked at too.
