Kings, of course! What's cooler than having a big ole fat KING remote reservoir sticking out in plain sight on your desert racer. Even if the Fox's are marginally better..........you can't beat the name out there!!!

Honestly I haven't run either one. Maybe I shouldn't have voted. But I can't believe either is a bad choice, but let's face it, there might be a reason the big boys with millions of dollars in their pockets run kings! And it's not because they are the least expensive!

I was trying to compare the more "economic" brands....

-but if you guys want, we can put them on the poll. I dont think I can modify it now.... Maybe Bear Foot can do it....

Re: Fox coilovers vs. King coilovers Vs. Elka

I ran Fox coil overs on my Edge Barracuda and it was by far the best $2000 i spent on that machine. They would soak up anything I though at them.
Can I ask why you are upgrading to coil overs? Because in my opinion the extra performance doesn't counter act the extra weight.

I work for the Lucas Oil Off Road series and the top drivers are around a 50/ 50 split between Fox and Kings. They are both good shocks.

On the glen helen race I noticed lots of fading on the shocks, and the suspension just didnt respond the same after a couple of laps.... I couldn't push the car like the beginning, I felt some lack of performance, in which I see it as a disadvantage....... Im hoping that the coilovers will eliminate the fading and give me better performance.... or am I thinking wrong? will I still be getting fading with the coilovers?
