Anyone have any experience with KING?

Hey all, so OGTerror over on f150online gave me this link the other day: KING Performance Coil-Over Kit FORD F-150

im really thinking about doing this.. I can fit 35s, and im sure it would ride SOO much better than the hocky puck and prob. be more capable offroad..

The other option im looking at is poss. doing a Rancho 4" with KING coilovers..

Im still looking at getting a Ranger for a dedicated trail rig, so the F150 will be my DD/weekend warrior truck so its not getting a 6" lift anymore..

just wondering if you guys have any experience with KING and if you think this setup would be worth it?

king is one of the better shock companies out there. it doesnt get much better than those. its just preference on which brand at that point.

Agreed. I'm happy with my Bilsteins though, those are a little overkill for what I need. For only 2.5" of lift though I think its way to much money. Maybe if you were going with a major lift
