On a ride that includes front end bottoming out. As mentioned, get things looked over - leveling as well as ride height. I know that some earlier years of CC, thanks to National's input, had shocks that were not up to the job of controlling the IFS. Our 04 40' Allure had Koni SP1 Adjustable shocks as OEM. Both CC's 'Alumni' staff, and Koni, strongly argued that the chosen shocks were not going to do the job... But, National knew better... Your year coach may still have the next generation Adjustable, the Koni SP2. (Sorry I do not know.) If they are the SP2, then they too are probably working too hard to do the job. Look into the SP3 generation, a good shock and can handle the job. Or also check with Koni on if the "99" shock might be a good choice for you - if available. And of course, Road Kings are also a good choice, IMO, for the front end.

The 99's just became available for the 20,000# front axle. Will order a set on Monday, not cheap but what is for these 'critters!!
