Default Road King Shocks

Has anybody on the forum tried Road King shocks? Looking for opinions.
I'm getting ready to replace all my airbags and shocks.
Does anyone have the part numbers for the airbags?

It seems like everyone is replacing something. Why are you doing this ? How many miles on your coach ? I have about 123,000 on mine

When it was time to replace OEM shocks on my Class 8 Trucks I used Road King. At the time they were a 100,000 mile shock. Used them on both KWs and Peterbilts. I had 1 failure in several different sets.

Richard,

The Ridewell engineer that has long advised me on suspension issues recommends replacing air bags every 10 years as a preventative measure.

Thanks David , Rick , Richard

The reason for replacement is 10 years is about when I start having trouble with my over the road trucks. Dry rot is the number one failure for us. We have 82 tractor and trailers all air ride. I dont spare any any expense on the safety and up keep of my equipment.

Thanks for the info everyone

Les
