Default Recording King Tuner swap

Hello,

I have a RK ROS 626 12 fret, and I wanted to change my stock tuners for some Waverly's. Has anyone here done this and what if any problems did you face.

I don't really want to do a bunch of re-drilling unless absolutely needed. The stock tuners are Grovers but they are really cheap and won't stay put. Plus there is some wobble on the 5 tuner post that makes it tough to stay in tune.

The only other thing I need to replace is the bridge pins. Stock ones are "ivory" with a black dot. FWIW I don't think they are ivory.
I am thinking on going with either ebony or snakewood, try to eeek out some more sustain and overtones.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for your time.
