King long travel rear shocks

Only thread I found was from a year ago and part numbers listed didnít work when I called king directly.

Metal tech gave me the extended and collapsed measurements needed and the only place that has them listed is bpfabricating. No number listed just email. When I called king they said they arenít a retail shop and directed me back to them.

Has anyone ordered these recently that can help?

Thanks in advance.

Just to update my own thread.....califab said itís a 6-8 week lead time and we have the correct measurements and king will valve them for the 5th gen.

Another off the shelf options would be tundra shocks and thatís about another 1.5Ē but the ďlong travelĒ ones are about another 4Ē.

So.....as soon as I order these and have an idea when theyíll be here I will be listing my current rear kings with adjusters for sale in the classifieds

I would call up Filthy Motorsports. They are an absolute pleasure to work with. I had multiple calls with them before I even placed an order and they were happy to answer all of my questions. They offer packages or single items and I know for a fact that they can work with King to do custom length rear shocks and valving.

Second on the Filthy Motorsports call. I spent an hour on the phone with Ben 2 weeks ago and got my tracking number on Friday with a delivery date of 10/10 for my 2.5 kit. I've received 4 emails in the past two weeks with updates.

See thatís what others have said. I might call back tomorrow and see if I can get someone else and just place the order without the middle man.

Maybe itíll even be a little cheaper.



Side note to those reading this thread......what are these stock king rear shocks worth used? Theyíre $1100 new. These have only about 5k miles on them and are in really good condition.

Check downsouth motorsports. The are THE place for king shocks. They build and valve the shocks in house. All other places send them to king or just dropship. Downsouth are experts

I personally purchased from wheelers. Often times, if you e-mail and ask the retailer if they have any promo codes, they will say no but give you a small discount.

I would not buy used shocks because you'd want to rebuild them, regardless of that the previous owner says.
