Description

PLEASE READ THESE NOTES !

--- SHOCKS ARE BUILT AND PRICED PER PAIR. BUILD FRONT OR REAR, ADD TO CART, THEN BUILD ANOTHER PAIR IF YOU LIKE.

--- THESE SHOCKS ARE HOSE REMOTE RESERVOIR FOR THE FRONT, AND PIGGYBACK REMOTE RESERVOIR FOR THE REAR. THE FRONT SHOCKS HOSE IS ALWAYS BLACK IN COLOR.

--- CUSTOM COLORS ADD AN EXTRA WEEK OR SO TO THE NOTED TIMELINE. THE CUSTOM END CAPS COLOR OPTION MAKES EVERYTHING YOU SEE NORMALLY BLUE CHANGED OUT TO THE COLOR YOU CHOOSE.

--- THE STANDARD SILVER SHOCK BODY CAN LOOSE IT'S SHINE VERY QUICKLY. TO KEEP THE SHOCKS LOOKING GREAT FOR EVER, WE SUGGEST WRAPPING THE MAIN BODY WITH CLEAR 3M VINYL WHEN NEW. THE ALUMINUM RESERVOIR BODY DOES NOT NEED THIS DONE.

--- THE STAINLESS STEEL SHAFT OPTION IS HIGHLY SUGGESTED. THE STANDARD CHROME SHAFTS CAN PIT AND CHIP VERY QUICKLY IF YOU ARE IN AN EVEN SLIGHTLY CORROSIVE AREA.

--- THESE FRONT SHOCKS ARE INTENDED TO BE USED WITH THUREN COILS. THEY CAN BE BE BUILT AND TUNED FOR OEM COILS OR OTHER BRAND COILS FROM THE 0" TO 3" LIFT HEIGHT, BUT THE SAME PERFORMANCE GAINS WILL NOT BE HAD. IF YOU ARE NOT USING OUR COILS, BE SURE TO NOTE EXACTLY WHAT YOU HAVE IN THE MESSAGE BOX.

--- REAR KING SHOCKS CAN BE MADE TO WORK WITH MANY SPRING COMBINATIONS. EVEN THE OEM AIRBAG TRUCKS. PLEASE NOTE REAR SUSPENSION DETAILS IN MESSAGE BOX IF NOT USING OUR REAR COILS OR LEAFS, SO THE SHOCKS CAN BE BUILT PROPERLY.

--- FRONT KINGS GIVE UP TO 9.5" WHEEL TRAVEL. REAR 2500 COIL SPRING TRUCK KINGS CAN GIVE UP TO 12.5" WHEEL TRAVEL. IF NOT USING OUR COILS THOSE NUMBERS WILL BE LESS.

--- LEAF SPRUNG 3500 TRUCKS WILL NEED AFTERMARKET LEAFS TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE EXTRA TRAVEL OPTION. SO NO REAL NEED WITH OEM LEAFS, BUT DOES NOT HURT ANYTHING EITHER IF YOU WANT TO CHOOSE THAT OPTION.

--- WE ARE ON KING'S TIMELINE. SOMETIMES THE SHOCKS TAKE 3 WEEKS TO SHIP, SOMETIMES 10. VERY HARD TO NAIL DOWN. UNLESS WE ARE SHIPPING SHOCKS OUT OF THE 48 STATES, THE SHOCKS ARE BUILT AT KING AND DROP SHIPPED STRAIGHT TO YOU. OUR RESERVOIR MOUNTS AND CUSTOM THUREN/KING STICKERS WILL COME FROM US VIA USPS PRIORITY MAIL. SHOCKS SHIPPING OUT OF THE 48 STATES COME TO US FIRST, AND THEN WE EXPORT.

 

         OUR WIDE RANGE OF VALVING OPTIONS COMES FROM YEARS OF RESEARCH, THEORY, AND TESTING. TECHNOLOGY BASED FROM THE LATEST MOTOCROSS SHOCK INTERNALS, AND ADAPTING THE DESIGN TO ALLOW THESE HEAVY DODGE DIESELS TO PERFORM LIKE NO OTHER. EVERY SHOCK INTERNAL DESIGN WE HAVE FOCUSES ON GIVING THE BEST RIDE ON THE SMALLER BUMPS, WHILE RESISTING BOTTOMING AND ADDING CONTROL ON THE LARGER IMPACTS. THIS IS DONE BY STRATEGICALLY PLACING MULTIPLE VALVING ZONES INSIDE THE SHOCK, GIVING TRUE SPEED SENSITIVE VALVING. SMALLER IMPACTS USE THE SOFT ZONE, WHILE LARGER IMPACTS PUSH THROUGH THE SOFT ZONE AND USE THE TUNED STIFFER ZONE(S). THIS TYPE OF VALVING IS VERY VEHICLE SPECIFIC AND REQUIRES PRECISION DOWN TO THE LAST .001". YOU DO NOT GET THIS LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE FROM ANY OFF THE SHELF UNIVERSAL RACE SHOCK.

- STAGE ONE - RIDES UNBELIEVABLE ON THE HIGHWAY AND PERFORMS GREAT ON MILD GRAVEL ROADS. VALVING IS LIGHT ENOUGH TO COMPLETELY ABSORB EVEN THE LARGEST POTHOLES, HIGHWAY EXPANSION JOINTS, AND EXCELS ON SMALL CHOPPY TERRAIN. STAGE ONE FRONT VALVING IS THE LIGHTEST VALVING WE HAVE, AND CAN STILL BOTTOM OUT EASILY ONCE YOU GET MORE AGGRESSIVE OFF ROAD. COMFORT AND POSSIBLE SPEED OFF ROAD IS STILL ABOUT DOUBLE WHAT IS POSSIBLE WITH THE STOCK SHOCKS.

- STAGE TWO - HIGHWAY RIDE IS STILL TOP-NOTCH, BUT THE SUSPENSION WILL NOW HAVE A SLIGHT SPORTS CAR TYPE FEEL TO IT. LARGE POTHOLES AND RUTS ARE ABSORBED THE SAME AS STAGE ONE, BUT THE SMALLER HOLES AND BUMPS HAVE A BIT MORE ENTRY FEEL. OFF ROAD PERFORMANCE AND BOTTOMING RESISTANCE IS INCREASED ABOUT 10% FROM STAGE ONE.

- STAGE THREE - THE MOST COMMON VALVING DESIGN WE USE. HIGHWAY RIDE IS STILL MUCH BETTER THAN STOCK, AND WITH THE RIGHT COMPONENTS, THE OFF ROAD PERFORMANCE INCREASE IS HUGE. LARGE POTHOLES, CURB SIZE BUMPS, RUTTED DIRT ROADS, AND SMALL SAND WHOOPS ARE NO PROBLEM. MORE SPEED EQUALS MORE FORCE TO PUSH THROUGH THE VALVING AND SMOOTH OUT THE RIDE IN THIS TYPE OF TERRAIN.

- STAGE FOUR - THIS IS WHERE THE OFF ROAD PERFORMANCE REALLY INCREASES, AND DESIRES SPEED. TIME TO START THINKING ABOUT A FRONT AXLE TRUSS, AS THE OFF ROAD SPEEDS ATTAINED CAN LET THE REALLY BIG HITS COME UP QUICK. ON ROAD RIDE IS STILL BETTER THAN STOCK ALL AROUND, WILL START TO FEEL MORE FIRM ON THE LARGER POTHOLES AND BUMPS COMPARED TO STAGE THREE.

- STAGE FIVE - AXLE TRUSS IS PRETTY MUCH MANDATORY AT THIS POINT TO USE THIS VALVING TO IT'S POTENTIAL. WITH THIS MUCH VALVING THE SUSPENSION DOES NOT ABSORB THE SMALLER BUMPS AS EASY, AND IS DESIGNED TO NOW REALLY RESIST BOTTOMING OUT. LARGE POTHOLES AND SMALL SPEED BUMPS ARE NOW ABOUT THE SAME FEEL AS THE STOCK SUSPENSION, BUT DO STILL GET ABSORBED WITH ENOUGH SPEED. THE HIGHWAY RIDE IS MORE BALANCED THAN STOCK, BUT HAS ABOUT THE SAME FEEL ON AVERAGE.

- STAGE SIX - PRETTY MUCH FOCUSED ON RACE SPEED OFF ROAD PERFORMANCE. SMALLER SQUARE EDGE BUMPS WILL BE PRONOUNCED, BUT THE BIGGER ROLLERS AND WHOOPS JUST WANT MORE SPEED. LARGE SAND WHOOPS CAN BE SKIPPED ACROSS WITH THE CORRECT LINE AND SKILL. THIS VALVING CAN TEST THE LIMITS OF ANY DRIVER AND LET THE TRUCK OBTAIN JAW DROPPING SPEED IN THE ROUGH. TO DRIVE YOUR DODGE RAM AT THE LIMITS OF THIS VALVING WILL REQUIRE VAST OFF ROAD DRIVING SKILL AND EXPERIENCE. HIGHWAY RIDE IS COMPROMISED WHEN CONTACTING LARGE POTHOLES AND BUMPS, BUT FREEWAY EXPANSION JOINTS ARE STILL MORE BALANCED THAN STOCK.
