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
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

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
The heat treated 6061 aluminum alloy piston has our
highly developed port configurations that contribute to
the unique damping performance and famous King
Wear bands are made from an exclusive Teflon
bronze composite that wears longer than any other

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
