Hello Tacoma World
Thank you all for your interest in this Group Buy. I will answer a few questions to hopefully clear a few things up, and then we can see where it goes. Taqoma has been doing a great job organizing this, and keeping in contact with us via PM. We will give him all the details of what we would like to do, and if you have any questions, please PM Taqoma 1st, as he will likely be able to answer your question. We will have pricing finalized today, and Taqoma will have all of that info. PLEASE...it is very important to not publicly post the pricing. We ask that pricing only be discussed in PM's.
Group Buy questions:
#1 – For the sake of simplicity, we are only offering the GB on the '2' sku#s in the original post. No substitutions for LT shocks, custom colors, bypass shocks or any of that. We need to keep this as simple and tangle-free as possible. You guys know, we always take care of TW anyways, so if you need custom shocks, just call me and I will work with you.
#2 – For California customers, the question about sales tax came up. I guess there was another quote which included tax, but plus shipping from another vendor. For this GB only, we will pay the sales tax on California orders. That is still free shipping via UPS ground, right to your door.
#3 – There will be a Loooooong wait time for this GB. King is already currently running behind as it is, so if we hit them with this, the build time will be approximately 6 weeks!
#4 – If we get enough orders for the GB to go down, we will ask that once the GB is closed, you call us with all your payment/shipping info. We will not send the P.O. to King, until everyone has called in with payment. So...if you flake out, you will be holding everyone else up.
#1 – Yes, King does offer standard & extended travel versions of their coil-overs. But extended travel, doesn't mean you can lift your truck higher. The only difference in the extended versions, is you gain about 3/8” of droop travel. These coil-overs were never designed to be a “Lift Kit”, but rather as a performance shocks. They obviously do provide a bit of lift, but we strongly recommend just running them at 2.25-2.5” of lift. That will give you the best ride/performance possible. Sorry if this sounds rude, but if you crank a bunch of pre-load into the coils, to gain lift and it rides like a tank....don't call us. That is exactly what happens when you pre-load a coil too much.
#2 – King doesn't make a non-reservoir version of their 2nd Gen Tacoma shocks. All shocks will have reservoirs.
#3 – If you would like to run a higher spring rate due to a winch bumper/winch/armor combo, that's not a problem. Just specify that you'd like a heavier spring when you call us with your info.
Thank you, and please PM Taqoma with any other questions...or you can call me at the shop. Phone calls go much faster than PM/emails!

Here is what we came up with, when speaking to King about the added length.
They cannot build them to ~27" because of the stem top cans being custom. What we can do, is run a +1" longer rod end, and remove the overlap spacer, to gain an extra 1 3/4" on the extended length. But with the longer rod end, it will also extend the collapsed length by an inch. So if we go this route, here are what the dimensions would be:
Again, it will be completely up to each user, to measure and make sure the shocks you order will work for your application.
Hope this helps...
Also, some members are asking about adding the compression adjusters. We can do that for you if you'd like. This is normally a $300/per pair option, but for the GB we're offering it for $255/per pair. It may add a little bit of time to the build time...
-Marco @ DSM
The "Lifted Application" rear King shocks are built to 27.75" extended, and 16" collapsed - BUT, there is an extra fee that they charge for the "custom" built option. So, it's $200 extra to build them that way.
This option is available to you guys, but there will be the extra charge, and you'll need to specify when ordering if you want that option. Same part #, but with a "L" at the end.
Hope this clears it up...
