Do a google search and do some research before going with the Road Kings. I have read on several Trucker Forums that they have not had good luck with the Road Kings and their Customer Service is horrible.

As stated before $2000 for shocks is a little steep.

Where or who can I contact to let me know which Bilstien shocks my 99 HR Endeavor DP would use? My coach has the original Bilstien's with around 90k miles. I replaced the front air bags and will do the rears and shocks this spring.

Can these be replaced without a lift in a driveway, per chance?

Attached is Bilstein brochure that shows the shock P/N's by chassis manufacturer and model. Or you can call Bilstein and ask them.

I installed Koni FSDs on the rear and Koni adjustables on the front. The Bilsteins had 50,000 mi on them. Man what a difference. Also I was able to dial in the ride with the front adjustable shocks. Rides and drives like a big sedan of the 60s-70s vintage and the handling is crisp and tight. Shocks on anything should be replaced at around 70,000 mi.
