KING Coil Over

Hey guys, I am looking at putting 35 X 12.50 X 20 under my 07. I understand to do this correctly I will need to at least level it.

Has anyone used the KING coil over set up? I know its not the cheap way to get 2-3 inches of lift but I dont mind investing in my truck.

Zach

Yes...IMO theres not a nickles difference...course someone will come in and say that FOX made in china King in US...and thats true...but theres nothing wrong with FOX shocks/coilovers.

Fox Shocks are made here in the US. The F150 raptor shocks are built in watsonville, ca at their main headquarters. Most of there standard offroad line shocks are built in santee, ca fyi

Spend the $$ on Kings...or get just as good of ride quality with proper coil springs and correctly valved shocks.. A 4 link is much more important to the ride quality of the '05's up.

Fabtech coilovers are not on the same page as Kings or Fox

Ok, Im going to go ahead with the King set up. Does anyone know what other things I will need to get this done. I know I will likely need a new track bar and some castor shims... but is that it? What about a new mounts for the coils? I have looked, but cant seem to find information on how to install these ne 2-3 Coilover systems for the PSD.

Chime in if anyone has info..
