King's new line of Original Equipment Manufacturer, (OEM), shock upgrade kits provide a bolt on suspension system that elevates your on and off-road performance to unmatched levels. Each kit has been subjected to punishing real world testing to develop the optimal damping curves and spring rates for your vehicle. Built with the same quality of materials and precise tolerances found on our high end race shocks our OEM upgrade kits enable you to experience the famous King ride quality on your daily driver.
Built with race winning design features our kits come complete and provide simple 100% bolt on installation with no cutting or welding done to your vehicle. Our front kits provide an adjustable ride height up to 25% increase in wheel travel. Rear kits typically allow a 15% travel increase. Large 2.5" diameter shock bodies with external reservoirs dramatically increase fluid capacity and heat dissipation to provide sustained damping performance even under the most punishing conditions. Our OEM upgrade shocks feature the same serviceable design that allows for valve adjustments with simple hand tools just like our race shocks.
Our experienced shock technicians are a phone call away to help should any questions arise during installation or use. Our kits are available ready to bolt into stock vehicles or with custom length rod end for vehicles running lifted aftermarket suspensions.
100% made in the USA under the strictest tolerances from the highest quality materials obtainable. Easily tunable and serviceable with simple hand tools.
Lightweight hard anodized 6061 aluminum alloy reservoirs dissipate heat quickly and will not rust due to gas charging contamination. High quality Parker fittings are mated to Aeroquip high pressure hoses which resist abrasion and kinks.
2.5" Shock cylinders are precision bored to within +/- .001 to ensure seal fit. Cylinders are honed after cadmium plating for precise piston sealing. Coilover shocks are machined with our own truncated thread design for ultimate strength and trouble free spring adjustments.
The heat treated 6061 aluminum alloy piston has our highly developed port configurations that contribute to the unique damping performance and famous King ride quality.
Wear bands are made from an exclusive Teflon bronze composite that wears longer than any other material available.
Large 3/4" or 7/8" diameter shafts have a minimum tensile strength of 100,000 pounds per square inch. They are hard chromed and micro-polished to a 6 RA finish for extended seal life.
Aluminum components and vehicle specific mounts are machined from aircraft quality billet.
Steel Teflon lined spherical bearings for smooth articulation and long life with no metal to metal contact.
All vehicle specific mounting brackets and necessary hardware is included in both front and rear shock kits. Detailed installation instructions are also included.
