    My order from DSM will get here tomorrow :goingcrazy::yay::bananadance:, but it just hit me that I always assumed that the kings would be ext travel, but I never really knew for sure. So will the ballin' coilovers I get tomorrow be ext travel or did I have to ask them to valve them special or something?

    valving doesnt have anything to do with travel numbers its more of a tuning thing for each persons truck. but knowing if they are extended travel, i have noooooooo idea. call DSM im sure they will gladly help you out.

    nope, they are not. but king can build them to be, if you ask...

    but in reality it's not that big of a deal if they are not ext travel... we're talking about less than 1" difference in droop travel

    New question, Just got everything on today and I'm going to have to raise the front up a little more than what it is. Is there an amount of turn to height ratio? For example how much does a complete turn get me?

    on the instructions of my toytec coilovers, it told me 1/4 turn of the collar equals to about 1 inch of lift. it didn't really work out that way, i turned it about 5 times around just to cancel out my taco lean...

    watch the threads when you're moving the collar. if theres more than an inch of new threads you oughta put the wheels back on, drop the jacks and measure. dont count on turns of the collar is all im sayin :D
    and i wouldn't lift any more than 3.25 over stock lift, or your cv's are gonna hate ya.

    thanks, looks like it will take a while then. I'm hoping to get them at about 2.75ish

    I put about 1.5 turns on the passanger coilover and around 4 turns on the drivers side. I'm right at 2.75 of lift and pretty close to level. But every truck is different and mine is a AC.
