Which King Coilovers

Well I managed to ruin the cylinder shaft on one of my front Fox shocks today while reassembling. shaft slipped while in the vise while torquing and left some deep marks. I'm at a cross roads because I want to move on to a King coilover but I'm not sure which one I should be running. I sent OffroadPro a PM but he hasn't posted since 2011 so I don't even know if he'll get it in the time frame I have. Can someone point me in the right direction please. I'm supposed to leave for Pismo beach a week from this Wednesday so the time is ticking. Which models should I be looking at and what are some recommended springs for jumping 6-8' consistently in sand with 180# adult.
Thanks,
Troy

You will have to change the front upper A-arms to fit coil overs on there. I would just buy a new piston shaft from PolyPerformance. I think there is a front shock for sale on this forum also (the guy parting out a Revolt). Polyperformance also sells the aluminum vise jaws to keep from damaging your shock while holding it in a vise.

I was told by somebody at fox that they didnt sell parts like that but I will give Poly a call on the morning. They are only about 2 hours away.
The Revolt for sale on the forum shows the shocks are already sold.
Where would I get the A-arms for the coilovers? Or would I have to fab them up myself.
Thanks for the heads up.

Re: Which King Coilovers

King Shocks should already have some info fo rRevolt Coil Overs. They had this car to set them up on. As far as upper control Arms you could Modify yours by cutting off the Back part of the upper arm and Making that part with a bend in it.

Re: Which King Coilovers

The rear shocks say they are sold but the front left shock is still listed for $100.00 The last I checked Poly Performance had all the parts for our Fox air shocks.

Yes you were right, they do I called today but they said it would be 7-10 days before I would have them in my hands. OffroadPro (Jose) turned me onto Offroad Warehouse and they can have them to me on Monday. The brand new shafts were $65 each and $60 for the vise clamp so I don't repeat my mistake.
