King Shocks QUESTION!

I have a 2021 4runner with KDSS. I'm able to get my hands on a set of King front coilover shocks that are NON-KDSS.

Are there minimal modifications to make this fit or is this an entirely different shock assembly not just reservoir mounts or brackets etc. in differences. Please let me know!! The part # is 25001-278.

King Shocks QUESTION!

Could be wrong, but I always thought it’s the orientation of the reservoirs

Kdss



Non-kdss

my icon reservoirs had to be mounted using the non-existant threaded swaybar mounts. the holes for the sway bar mount are there but they are just holes, no threads. I drilled them out abit bigger and used rivnuts.

you also have to cut off a bracket covering the KDSS lines on one side, not a big deal because it gets covered reservoir bracket afterwards.

Thank you guys for all your responses! I will wait to order the correct ones then; sounds like it's too much hassle to fabricate to make it work.

They were one of the dozen shops that I contacted that had a false inventory..

Then they tried to put me on Fox and Icon stuff and also said the fox rears weren't available so I was like wtf why mention it then.

I ordered during Black Friday and have been waiting since. I also saw a few places that have them in stock, but it’s hundreds of dollars more.

that's exactly what I need to do with my King reservoirs. They are mounted horizontally now because of KDSS but it causes quite serious tire rubbing agains reservoirs at full lock.

But looking at your picture I'm wondering how you regrease bushings on your Total Chaos UCA? Looks like you need to remove the reservoirs and the mounting brackets every time you do the service?

Hey Daytonaviolet, I remember seeing you on M3Forums back in the days. I ordered mine through a local vendor in SoCal on 10/22/2020. I am approaching 12 weeks. The status as of this morning was “Kings is having difficulties sourcing components to build the shocks”.
