Who has what, and how do you like it? What are the pros and cons of each? As of now I'm leaning towards TC, but I'm really not sure. Help me make up my mind!
I think the kits which let you keep the 4wd is the best deal. You don't always need the push button, but when you need it to haul someone out, or low gear it over something, you just can't beat the 4wd. I have to agree, pick a color. And, King gets the nod, although there is nothing wrong with Fox, they just don't do as many taco's as King. Buuuutttt, the SAW from the 'Burg, valved right would be hard to pass on. So, again, pick a color.YoTRacer158 said:The ESB kit would be my choice, but It's a little out of my budget

??? Have you ever seen the inside of either shock? I'm not gonna start bashing SAW, they actually have improved a little bit, but in terms of quality of components SAW doesn't even fall in the same category as King. I rebuilt shocks for two years, and let's just say we had to fix WAY more SAWs then Kings. Half the SAWs that came in I could twist the shock body out of the end cap with my hand, or especially often, the end loop off the shaft. To get a King shaft out of the endloop we had to heat up the endloop with a torch for about 2 minutes before having to use a wrench and a breaker bar with all my weight on it. Most of the time I had to heat it up more than once. Also, I saw way more broken shims on SAWs then King. I think I saw broken King shims once. I could go on but basically Kings have better heims, shafts, seals (Viton), shims, and better components all around. There's a reason why you don't see hardly any SAWs on high dollar race vehicles. Now with that said, they're not THAT bad for the price, but if you're going for quality (and something that's gonna work better out of the box) go King or Fox.drabnor said:why not?
they are all basically the same inside... like i said, pick a color
Fox's new shocks are giving King a run for their money. REALLY, REALLY nice shocks.YoTRacer158 said:I've never really thought highly of Fox, always seemed like racerunner and king were the big two...
Probably cuz they represent the two extremes of race shocks. You see Kings on all the Class 1s and TTs, and SAWs on all the budget prerunners.YoTRacer158 said:always seemed like racerunner and king were the big two...
