I just put Road Kings on my 40' Coach. I have 55000 miles on coach. They are worth the extra cost. Whole lot better than Koni's.

Better than new Konis or better than Koni after 30,000 miles? In other words--twice as good for twice or 3 times the price? Inquiring minds want to know [smile]....

I installed Road Kings 5 years and 96,000 miles ago and they are still working great. They ride better today than my original shocks did after 20,000 miles. Road Kings would be my suggestion.
