Replacing front shocks

I have a 2007 Country Coach Intrigue 42 foot. I want to replace the front shocks. Any suggestions on a good shock absorber to replace them with? Brand and part number etc would be grear too. Doesn't look like they are hard to replace. Any suggestions or tips? I'm surprised at how small they are. Thanks

I installed Road Kings all the way around. Made a huge difference in handling.

But there is a guy here that put them on a Magna and said they were to harsh

We had the 2.5 at all locations on our 05 inspire and really likes them. Good service. With or magna it was suggested to go 3 inch on the front and 2.5inch the other positions. We installed the 3inch and found them to stiff. The rig handled well but I thought the cabinets were going to come loose. Road King requested that we send them back and they would put them on a dyno and run some test. The 3 inch are massive shock with the ability to provide incredible force which has to be controlled .I should know the results in a week or two. Im still a fan of there products and understand were just dealing with a little r and d.

We do have the RK's 2.5" on all locations. I'm good with the ride and the handling. It's a bit stiff on the front end, but I think it would be ok if I did not have the Michelin XZE*. The "*" XZE's have stiffer sidewalls. I went with these primarily for the rear, just in case we 'kissed' a curb while doing tight turns over the 7 years of planned usage. We're at year five now, and when we replace them I'll again go with he XZE* on the rear and tag, but probably the XRV on there front, and if I have room, bump it up from 12R.

OK, back to shocks. I feel it would be worth a call to Koni, to ask them if they have a "99" shock for your application. Many of the Western RV Alpine owners are very a happy with the "99".

Best of luck to you,
Smitty

Thanks for all the help. I contacted Road King and they are building me a set.
