Road King Shocks

We have an 05 40' FDTS Alpine. Need new shocks. I have read lots of good about the Road King shocks and got an email from Lonnie that they are $1400 for all corners. I just called Road King and was told they like to have measurements of the shocks. I am unable to get under the coach. Ha anyone ordered a set for the same coach as mine and have part numbers?
Thanks in advance!

Road King Shocks

The measurement required is the distance between the mounting bolts when the coach is in ride position. Can I assume the rear shocks are the same as the front?

I had absolutely no problem with shock length when I ordered my set of Road Kings in August 2011. I just told them that we had a 2006 Alpine and the Road King representative said what I needed was 2 #5A’s with ” x 1 ” spacers, and 2 #4-A’s also with ” x 1 ” spacers. I don’t remember which set went to the front or the rear, but when you look at them it’s self-evident. The price was $700.00 plus our CA tax for each set. It’s nice to know that apparently there hasn’t been the ever-present inflation to the price of Road King shocks. You are going to love the Road Kings, they really do the job. I went through the exercise of OEM Bilsteins and then Konis before installing the Road Kings. Yes, they are pricey, but well worth the money both in road handling and ride improvement – there definitely is a noticeable difference.
