    about to pick up a set of kings but the top cap is 90* (layout 3) so the resi sits on the side. is it as simple to get a new top cap to make it normal (layout 1)?

    I'd assume so. Just give King a call and see what they can do.

    They will probably have you send them the shocks in order to do it. The top caps are machined per shock to line up right.

    I would expect them to machine each shock body the same, and just offer different top caps based on all shock bodies being the same. Sounds like it would be way more expensive and time consuming to have each shock body to be different with custom caps to match each custom body. I could absolutely be wrong though.

    That's just email for pretty much anywhere. It's always way faster to just pick up the phone and talk to someone.

    Top caps should be the same but just the threads start at different rotations around the bottom is my guess.

    Oooooo pretty. Need to get some 2-1/4” bolt on snouts though. Anyone want some weld on ones? 100$

    Any second gen 4x4 guys had issues with their a-trac not working? I noticed mine wasn't working on my last trip to Moab and I can't figure out why. I've checked and tested the switch and it's fine, even jumped it to eliminate a bad button as the problem. Can't seem to find a wiring diagram; so I don't really know where to go from here.

    Anyone have thoughts? Wiring diagram maybe?

    I know it's the perfect excuse to just throw a proper locker in, but funds are severely lacking for that kind of fix.

    Thanks

    @zscott the Panhard Correction Kit is available for order and the product should be available in the next 3 weeks for shipping if you are interested. I’m not the one selling this, Keith is just a good friend of mine. So I am sharing.

    What are your alignment numbers and wheel specs? Is it rubbing when cycling the suspension at full bump or just during normal driving?

    Thanks. I don’t have the truck this second. But had it aligned again with +3.5 caster on each side. Have print out in truck. Just rubs while turning sharp and or hitting bumps while turning.

    What are the wheel specs. Only time I’ve seen 33’s rub fiberglass during normal driving was on a truck that had wheels that weren’t in spec for tacomas
