I'll be happy to go over what I did with you. I have all kinds of ideas for you haha.
I can share my $ with you guys now, I pre paid so I know how much it was :/ For the Kings it was $3600 total. Keep in mind I paid a lot for upgrades that are NOT required :
Front CO's - Custom Kings built to my ext and collapsed specs. ( My truck sits 8" over stock in the front and 6" in the rear, level stance ) I paid extra for remote resi's, adjustable remote resi's and all black anno parts. King does not offer different colors for their coils so I will have to pay a few $ to get them powdered silver or black if the blue coils end up looking weird on the silver and black bodies ?
Rear Shocks - 14" Kings 2.5" body, I paid extra for black anno parts, remote resi's and adjustable resi's. I am doing an expo style build and I have a camper shell, roof rack & steel bumper with full size spare so I went with the larger 2.5 body just to be safe.
You could get the same set up for probably $1k less
without resi, without adjustment, without custom color and 2" bodies for the backs. Every custom item with King is around $250 per pair per upgrade. I don't think the custom valving I ordered cost any extra. I know I have said this 100 times but either go full custom or don't do it at all, if you want to stay at 6"+ the over the counter " 6" lift CO's " will not do it they are not any taller than the PC or FT CO's.
Install costs - The front CO's will bolt right in and include the King / Toyota top hat so that is free install DIY. The rears will run you around $600 installed for custom hoops and axle tabs etc. Dirt King can create a rear shock hoop kit based off of what they built for me if anyone is interested, they saved all of the specs.
I would highly suggest going through Down South Motorsports
for King, they have a ton of knowledge around custom valving because they are a shock service shop and valving makes a HUGE difference too.
