Do Kings make any noises

Will king 2.5 smooth body coilovers make any noises? Like popping, grinding, or squeeking?

Are new UCA's necessary for them at 2.5" of lift on a 4x4?

I have no problems with mine and you can keep the stock UCAs at 2.5...but after getting the upgraded UCAs it was just a much better feel.

can you tell me honestly if the "feel" is worth $635 greenbacks? I mean is it still nice without them or do you think it should be mandatory for UCAs

I have Built Right UCAs and they set me back $469.

I am into it more for performance not looks. If the UCAs didn't do anything for me I would not waste my money.

I ran the same trail

Stock
Then
Added TSB
Then
King Coilever
Then UCA

So I have a pretty good comparison.

If I was just using the truck for the street and not on the trails that I go on I would likely just have the stock UCA.

The aftermarket ones give you better Articulation as well.

So to answer your question...

Yes I would pay the money for TC or Camburg if the Built Rights were not available.

Do I think they are mandatory if you have a 2.5" lift and do light trails...No
