I haven't done much with the F-350 recently, but I've been shopping for a new work car. I drive a ton for work and the Impala was showing it's age. After driving everything in the 'mid-size' category I chose a 2017 Hyundai Sonata Sport with Premium package. Haven't put many miles on it yet but I'm very impressed with it. Add to that their willingness to give me the equivalent of their 'X-Plan', a $4k rebate, and their match of the highest trade offer for my old car and it was a no-brainer.

Had lockers fr/r pulled. Ploughing straight ahead in 4x4 entering a mountainside hairpin is no good. Went trutrac front and ox locker rear. Now the cable actuator on the ox is not set up yet until commit to the routing (it can be manually engaged, havent tried yet), as have some other considerations to figure out. And put new big horns on, replacing some old bfg km2's. 315/75r16 on the old 7" steel d-rings. New 8x16's foming next week, then will put the snows on the smaller wheels for good.

Pulled the transmission and transfercase out. Going to be installing a HD tranny in it. The one I pulled out was a dealership rebuild that only lasted 30,000 miles...

My impressions of the King shocks........

Wow! Completely transformed the truck. It now feels very planted on the road, even loaded and with a trailer behind it. No floatiness, no oscillations after a bump or dip in the road. Ride quality is a little firmer, but still very acceptable, and the truck doesn't have that "heavy" feel on undulating roads, no wallowing or head shaking. Best money I've spent on the truck in a while.

79s, I'm hoping it's much better than the local (dealership) build, which, in fact, did suck ass. Actual mileage of that rebuild was 32,000 miles. She's definitely smoked too. Starting slipping in 3 and then lost all but 1st. and reverse. Fluid is black (actually purplish color). I was hoping it was just an electrical problem inside the transmission, but no go on that. The upgraded/heavy duty transmission has more 3-4 clutch packs that are stronger, upgraded valve body for better flow/line pressure, corvette servo, Beast reaction sunshell, deep pan, all new wiring/electrical and solenoids, etc.... There's a lot more on the list of upgraded parts, but I'm not home and can't look at the build sheet.. I'm hoping it's a good one though...

What truck did you put them on? Did you replace the Fox 2.0's in the pic with the Kings? I'm about to go with Thuren springs on my 98 Dodge 2500 and am torn between the Fox and the Kings....

2014 Ram 2500 4X4 with Cummins. I tried a set of Fox 2.0's, and while it isn't a fair comparison to the Kings as the Fox's are 2", the Kings are 2.5 with reservoirs, the Fox's left me very underwhelmed. the shop that I buy from was very gracious in giving me a full refund on them so I bought the Kings through them. Had the Fox's on for about a week. I suppose the "big" Fox's with reservoirs would have been ok, but these Kings impress the hell out of me.

I guess I'm a little more picky than most, some would call me anal smile , but I've had the factory shocks, Bilstein 5100's, Rancho 9000's, the Fox's, and now these Kings. Happy with my last choice.
