    So how high can I lift my 2011 4 x 4 sport with my king's and TR UCA's. The shop turned them 7 rotations from the factory set up is that to high?

    I know a lot of places ship out with preload and 7 turns from shock to shock runs different so maybe someone with kings will chime in also Ho out and measure like Scott mentioned

    You spent $1400 on something you had no idea of the specs of?

    And I thought I spent freely :rolleyes:

    Hopefully u got the 2.5 with a resevior. as far as the pre load, if u have very much more than 3', the frontend will start bouncing as if u had hydraulics and become very hard to steer.

    Ir was a general comment as he said he knew nothing about it except they were 1400. If aomeone buys its just like off the site 1400 without telling specs or anything then they are the same. And there arent different "part numbers" for the coilovers just a different number for parts of the kit, not as a whole.
