King Suspenion Setup Q n A's

Front Set-up
So i know king oe replacement coilovers and rear shocks have the same amount of length extended and compressed. As stock billies on my trd.

Just to confirm, once c/os are installed with a t/c uca. Only advatage i will be getting up front set to 2.5inches of lift. Is no binding form uca uniball, and alignmnet corrections? As far as travel, will it be increased? im guessing not at all. since king doesnt make extended lenght bolt in c/os. So in another words the uca is capable of allowing more travel than the king replacement c/o can provide since not be an extended length type of c/o.
Correct me if im wrong.

Rear Set-up
For the rear im not lifted at all with km2 285/70/17. what is the most reasonable lift amount i should preform in the rear? without bottoming out/fully extending the shock when on/off roading. i was thinking a 1" lift if not a 1.5" max. i do haul a 6x12 ft enclosed trailer when going to go play in the dirt. and i dont have that rear leaf tsb done.... which reminds me. im out of warranty. can i still have it preformed at the dealer at no cost to me? high hopes there huh? lol
and input would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks

ok, i wont be such a dick... you are correct about the CO's and UCA's. you will gain no extra travel using an aftermarket UCA unless you have ext length CO's. you will get alignment corrections and wont have binding issues and it adds strength to your front set up. as for the rear susp IDK cause i dont have a second gen. call up king and see what they recomend for a rear lift w/ their shocks. you'll prob be fine w/ something like this if your worried about price and being able to still haul crap and not bottoming out the susp. but still call king and see what they have to say.

You will get more down travel with aftermarket uniball arms with your Kings. I asked the guy at Downsouth Motorspots about the Kings and ICON UCA"s and this was his reply.....



Good evening,
As far as I know the ICON Billet UCA's will clear, but I will be at
King tomorrow and a friend of mine that used to work at ICON works at
King now and I will ask him to be on the safe side....
King does not make an Extended travel per say....There shock already
has a little more droop travel then stock....Around 1.5" 1.75" of added
droop travel....
Let me know if you would like for me to still check on the fitment with
the ICON UCA's???
Thank you,
Sonny
