I was told by filthy motorsports that my lead time would be 5-7 weeks as the shocks were built to order but they only took 2 weeks! I'm stoked on installing them on my Rebel set at a 1.5" taller than stock(2.5 taller than non offroad ram).Too bad my truck will be at the body shop getting repairs for about two weeks.I also purchased a BDS UCA the same day but it only took about 4 days to arrive. I will be pairing it with this kit and I'll be doing a thorough review as I still have not seen a good review on youtube strangely enough.... especially on a ram. 20200708_230811.jpg 20200708_231312.jpg

This is where I purchased them from. Ben Braza is a really nice dude. He will tell you straight up if something is not necessary within the options listed on the website. I initially paid for custom valving and a 1"+ extended strut to get a 3" lift on the rebel but he gave me a call the next day and said he wouldn't reccomend the extended strut and said the valving wasn't necessary either if I dont have any permanent weight. Instead he told me that I should add compression adjusters in the rear( I had already purchased front compression adjusters) in case I ever go on a trail run with some weight in the back such as my atv. So it was pretty cool that they sell you the right product the first time. Total cost for the kings $3,340 and the BDS UCA was $780.

Do you gain a lift?
Yes. I had installed the readylift 2" spacer lift with upper control arms when they had just came out but it only gave me about 1.25" of lift. My center of hub to bottom of fender measured 23.25 when a non leveleved rebel is arlund 22". These are made to give you 24" from center of hub to bottom of fender while still having great performance. This is coming from Ben Braza the owner of filthy motorsports Screenshot_20200710-183505_Gmail.jpg

Ah gotcha. Interesting. So your rear is spaced lifted still?

How do you find the valving from king on those? Thuren sells a king kit too with his custom valving for about $2500.
King sells them tuned at pretty much what would be Thurens stage 4(If you add compression adjusters) and at a stage 3 with out the adjusters. Im not sure if paying that extra money for a couple of shims is worth it. Ben Braza is also an expert at valving and he didn't reccomend me touching the valving because the compression adjusters would be enough for my needs.

I had thuren stage 3 on my 2500 and it was a great balance for a daily driver. I’m glad to hear that for sure. I’m not sure the 1500 needs valving that stiff though.

Any update on this? I am greatly interested in the performance of the Kings both on and off road. Pics would be great!

I ordered stage 4 valved kings with compression adjusters from Thuren yesterday. With the type of trails and 4 wheeling we have down here in the southwest (so. Cal. / Arizona) the stage 4 valving should be perfect.
