Road King shocks?

Anyone installed the 3" RK's on an Allure with the Holland-Neway IFS? Tech support at RK says there have been a problem with the steering box or something, did not know much details about which coach or front end arrangement. Any info here?
07 allure with IFS Holland neway.

I think there is a fellow on the Yahoo CC owners forum who has put Road Kings on his Allure and is really pleased with them.

I just got some Koni SP3 adjustable shocks to replace the FSD's on the front of my Allure since it seems to float/porpoise more than I would like. Also, Koni admitted to me that the FSD's were really not stout enough for the front axle weight on our rigs. The SP3 is supposed to be a really stout shock. I have them adjusted to the 4th of 5 settings. I have not had them installed yet so cannot give you a performance report.

What is the suggested problem/issue with our particular IFS?

Yea, I have the FSD's also, l have talked with koni and they had agreed to provide some warranty support for the adjustables, but when I decided to go with their plan the ole switch aroo came into play, Fill out the warranty form online, give us your Credit card no. And we will send the shocks, return your old shocks and at our discretion we will give you credit for the shocks, less shipping and handling. Well l said what the heck, when can you ship the shocks, after chasing rabbits for several minutes, l was told, we do not have shocks in stock, will be the middle of Oct, so I said well ok, but then he said we have about 100 orders to process before yours, I had enough with koni., no more for me, was that lifetime warranty?

Not sure what the real problem is, lt has been suggested to increase the ride height by 1/2 to 3/4", that did not help, it would top out then. I plan now to install the RK's if nothing happens.

I've read that worn/hardened rubber bushings on the various front end components can cause handling issues.

When I retire next year and we head out West, we plan to visit Country Coach and let them check everything and replace those type of wear items if necessary. I have a bunch of urethane bushings I got from Hendersons for my Journey that I never got around to installing and hope to be able to use them if needed.
