Shock Porn - King Shocks arrived tonight.

I ordered the King OEM Performace series for my F250 a friggin month ago, after chewing on King for two weeks, they landed at my doorstep this evening.

I opened em up and took a few pics down and dirty. These shocks are no joke. I ordered the adjustable pin top fronts, with remote resi's and the rears, adjustable with remote resi's as well.

I'm hoping to install tomorrow, keeping track as I go.


If ya wait a month, you can get some free stickers


Fronts are adjustable pin tops, with remotes mounted. Heavy monkeys, fo sho. Each shock is marked "driver" or "passenger". Sounds like they are pretty specifically tuned (although I bet its so the mounts and stickers are all facing the same way, lol)




From the King site, I assumed the rears were piggyback adjustables, but apparently they are not.





I think I can get em on in the am, if not, tomorrow night. Turkey Day and all.

Any lift or did you just replace your stock shocks? I just got a set of King reservoirs for my Rize steering stabilize. I wouldnt mind getting the rest of the truck done up with Kings though. I also like the fact that yours are adjustable.

so, an update... I'm half done. lol.

This am I got up and because I've swapped shocks on this and my other F250 several times, I didn't think it would be a big deal, so I thought I would knock em out.

As I mentioned, all the shocks are marked "driver" or "passenger". I originally thought for tuning, but apparently for clearances, etc. I took off the passenger shock (near the exhaust) in about a minute, and grabbed the King rear markef "passenger". Simple.

The way I THOUGHT it should go, put the hose too close to the frame, so I turned it around. Nothing getting in the way, so I mounted it up, BAM! easy peasy lemon squeezy!

Flopped over to the other side (driver) and pulled the Rancho and grabbed the King. I mounted it same as other one, with the hose away from the frame (if I mounted it the other way, the hose squeezed between the shock body and the frame.

e·piph·a·ny   [ih-pif-uh-nee]
noun, plural -nies.

a sudden, intuitive perception of or insight into the reality or essential meaning of something, usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience.


these damn things are on the wrong sides, and why? King marked em wrong. Happy Thanksgiving to me !!!

(heres a pick of the passenger side, mounted with the drivers side shock. you can see if I turned it around, the hose would compress between the frame and the shock body.)


I take a break, go have lunch with my family and get back into it later today. Swapped em OPPOSITE of what the tags said (thanks King) and they fit perfect, look great.

I start on the front shocks. I know with the OEMs you can literally unbolt and push em together with your hands and pull em out of the mount. Simple. I bolted the top of the new King to the mount, and the shock appears to be too long. I know they are already extended, but if I compress em and get em into the mount and the suspension goes back to the height it WAS, I literally am gonna have 2 inches of travel until the shock body compresses 100%.




Before I tackle the front, I gotta call the King guys and see if they have actually installed one of these on a 2011 F250, lol.

**Does anyone know if these shocks are gonna lift that front at all? I'm doubting they can lift that 1,000lb diesel engine, but I'm not getting into that front until I hear from these guys.
