Looks close to me. I'd make it work. You can't kink those lines with a little bending. Little added stress is always good on a hose lol

did the leaf pack/shackle movement test before, forgot to post up

tied a string around the center of the front hanger/bushing, lined it up along the leaf pack, sharpie'd where it sat on the rear shackle


pulled it taught, looked at where the sharpie'd mark was now (that dark spot is dirt on the string, the mark is around where my thumb is

So apparently the stock shackle is just a tiny bit too short. idk if I should reinstall my shackles now

damnit jason I was totez set on just throwing it on for gnar travel before haha

They also claim that it was make for the OEM UCA's not aftermarket and wouldn't work with it.

With the hose ordeal he said that they would take a look at it and if it did need to be replaced I would need to take the whole coilover off myself and give it to them without the truck to put a new one on.

What do you guys think about this?

Are they extended travel coilovers ? Usually they need aftermarket uca's . Do the spindles have anything to do with the angles ?

2 things I don't like about king . Their resi fitting location and how they come with no preload . Couple others but ill keep it to myself .

I see the sharpie mark. Could just be the angle, but it doesn't look like the stock shackle is short at all. It pivots on the top bolt and looks like it would rotate rearward enough to hit your sharpie line.

You can still put on your longer shackles...at the sacrifice of uptravel, pinon angle, and stinkbug status.

let's hear it. agree with the fitting location. the preload? well, I only preloaded the driver's side to combat taco leanitis(I have #650 coils). the driver's rear corner still leans though

er, that dark spot was some dirt/grease. the mark I put was right in front of my thumb, by where my pointer is, but rotated out from where I took the picture
but I made another string the length of the shackle and rotated it, it's a just a tad short

idk whether I should be that anal about it haha

thanks for the heads up about doing that though. fucking simple, why the fuck hadnt i thought of that

Looks to me like the installer might of actually put the right resi holder on the left side and viseversa. Notice how the holder cross member is angled tower the back. Look at my picture. It is angled towards the front. (Not sure if it matters though, I don't remember if the holes are centered) It just might be pushing the resi holder forward enough to cause the hose rubbing. My 90* angle looks identical to ours and I don't have any issues. Easy fix, give it a try. Here's my picture.

And just so you know, don't waste your time going down to king unless you have taken the coil over off, they will be able to do nothing with it on the truck. The tool they use is a regular crescent wrench with a cheater bar welded to the end to give it more leverage. I had to take my secondary shock down to them to have the elbow adjusted. They just wrench on it like we would, shock still charged and everything.

After comparing the pictures closer. Just loosen up the resi and push it back a 1/2 inch or so. Look at mine. I have no issues with rubbing. Like the other guy said, don't be worried about having the resi centered in the clamps. Elementary.....

Would you guys recommend switching from a 13" 650lb coil to a 14" 600lb coil on my Icon coilovers? I won't have an aftermarket bumper for while and a winch even longer.

You would have less preload for sure. Are you feeling like the 650# is too rough? Why not just go to a 650# 14" spring?

I would stay with a 650# spring mainly because that is what Icon uses so the shock is valved accordingly for use of that spring

King can build that Tacoma shock with a remote reservoir however you will need to fabricate your own sway bar drop brackets and reservoir mounting brackets as they do not have any available because that older model Tacoma kit is only built standard w/o a reservoir. The 1995.5-2004 Tacoma front coil over in a extended travel with a remote reservoir and 600# coil would be $1425.42/pair

Do first gens get real squirrely without their sway bar? Why not ditch the bar and get weld on res mounts? I think they're like ten bucks a set.

You would be surprised how much you would probably like the way the truck drives with out the sway bar?

Can you weld or do you have access to a welder? Ce sell some mounts that weld on to the frame.. You would need two per shock so a total of 4.
They are 1.99 each.
