Changing shocks on a Roadmaster rr4r chassis

I just ordered new Bilsteins for my 04 Safari Cheetah. I am changing both front and rear. Any good advice for performing this work on a roadmaster rr4r chassis?

Have the trailing arms been replaced yet?

The trailing arms were replaced by Monaco back in 05. Unfortunately, at that time, they were replacing them with basically the same design. I have had them inspected and do not show any stress cracks. The coach only has 30K miles. I do plan to have Source Engineering arms installed this winter when I get to Florida. I will be looking for a facility that has experience with the work and has optical alignment technology. I did read that Henderson's Line Up in Orlando has good service.

I wouldn't replace the shocks until you have source engineering do the trailing arms. They have special blistern tuned for the RR4R chassis. If you are doing the shocks I would have Source install the Ride Enchance Kit which includes the glisten shocks.

Josams alignment in Orlando is arguably the top heavy vehicle alignment shop in the country. If they will do the install you can be assured that there is none better.
