Recall information
 
Koni North America (KONI) is recalling certain shock absorbers with model numbers:
 
8245-1146L
8245-1146R
8245-1201L
8245-1201R
8245-1203L
8245-1203R.
 
These shock absorbers were manufactured January 2008 through April 2013. The affected absorbers were manufactured with an incorrectly welded bracket which may cause the shock absorber to bend and rest on the drive shaft. A bent shock absorber may compromise vehicle handling, increasing the risk of a crash. KONI will notify distributors and advise them to contact their customers of the recall. The shock absorbers will be replaced free of charge. The recall began on May 16, 2013. Customers may contact KONI at 1-800-209-3350.
 
I tried to cross the numbers to there application(s), but could not find a cross reference from part number to application. 
Posted the information because many Coach owners also use them for other vehicles.
