    If you are interested in this:


    Sign up by replying to this thread. Don’t chicken out. You are either in or you aren’t. NO maybe, no waiting on the wife, gf or bf to get permission. There is enough time to make up your mind or find a doctor to sell your kidney or pawn your wife’s jewelry. If you are on the fence to see if it’ll go up to max discount before you jump in, you are HOLDING the group buy back. Don’t be that dude.

    Someone just tell me which to buy in a 2.5. I had settled on the Fox and am a newb so this throws me for a loop. I know i won’t go wrong so any input would be much appreciated!

    Kings for so many reasons

    But honestly you're not in southern California so the real reasons are not applicable. If you buy kings you can meet them in the desert and they will help set up your vehicle and tune the shocks. So....besides the pretty blue colors, and depending on your actual applications, both are solid purchases

    That’s the sense I’m getting. Damn it I hate these decisions. I’m in for sure. I strongly dislike this forum.

    KINGs have better quality internal components. Otherwise KING and Fox are comparable shocks.

    We have access to Kings full line of products but it can depend on shipping costs, etc so not all items may qualify for the same discount but we can evaluate it on a case by case situation. Just PM me if you know what you'd like and I will check on it for you.

    PM me the details of your exact kit and we can see what is available in either King or ADS brands if you would like.

    I was told the opposite from Headstrong. ADS has better components without a charge where King, one needs to pay extra to upgrade the parts. Unless things have changed. The finish on ADS is better than King as well. Over a year ago, the customer service with ADS wasn't the best.

    Wondering what option to go if we are going to purchase the ADS shocks for mid-travel? Is there an extended option comparable to kings or?

    Would this apply to things like shackles and leaf-packs as well? I am hopefully sourcing a set of ADS front and rear from some members here, but will need to upgrade UCAs, rear leaf, etc. in the process

    I was told by one of the best trophy truck prep guys in the business. But he was comparing race shocks.
