    alright guys here's my problem. I bought some oem king c/o for my 01 Toyota Tacoma, at the same time I did the install I threw on some toytec 2" lift shackles in the rear and called it a day. When I was done I didn't like that the front was sagging more sooo I adjusted my c/o's today and when I was done I took it for a test drive and it feel like the shocks don't absorb much of any bumps and it even feels like im bouncing up and down a bit. Anybody have any idea what this can be do to? I adjusted to much? Need more nitrogen? maybe valve them for that much preload? idk im thinking of calling king and asking them I just want to see if anyone else has had this happen to them.

    pre-load, you may need to re-valve your shocks to dampen out the extra spring force.

    maybe go with a higher spring rating? a bit longer as well?

    Your positive they are charged with nitro. Sometimes vendors send them uncharged.
