    Yes. King's website does a better description of specs than I will.

    Yes, OEM Performance series.
    It's all bolt on, but I tune all my shocks. Bit of a hobby. Shock tuning is tuned to the rig and driver preference. That said, if you buy them from Micah at Downsouth Motorsports and he'll tune it however you want before they go on the truck to your house.

    I might take a drive to his shop in San Diego. It's not too far from L.A.

    one more question: if I go from stock to the stock height KINGS perf series, will it give me a 3" lift and clear 35 "s ?
    I see they are offering a stock and lift height size for their shocks.

    They are adjustable coilovers, so you can add/remove preload to adjust the ride height up/down. Depending on what spring rate you chose, how much preload you add, and weight you have on the front of the truck will determine your overall ride height
    You can clear 35's with no lift, so yes.
    The "lifted" height size option you are referring to is specifically for drop bracket lifts such as fabtech or procomp. It has a longer rod end. You don't want that option unless you have a drop bracket.
