King's large 1" and 1.25" diameter shock shafts are induction hardened to 60-65 on the Rockwell scale, hard chrome plated and then micro-polished to a 3 RMS mirror finish. The incredible hardness protects against rock bruising and the mirror finish creates a highly effective seal that does not weep. Our rod end attachment method has been in use for 13 years without a single failure. We hydraulically press the shaft through a threaded bung then tig weld the bung to the end of the shaft. The rod end is then threaded onto the bung. This design removes all threads from the external portion of the shaft end giving it unbelievable strength. Shocks are mounted on both ends through replaceable Teflon lined steel spherical bearings.
King Pure Race series reservoirs feature threaded end caps to withstand higher pressures and ease maintenance. Their lightweight aluminum construction aids in heat dissipation and will not rust due to condensation or gas charging contamination. We use only the best Aeroquip hoses and high quality fittings with our remote reservoirs. The Aeroquip hoses are extremely durable with the highest temperature and pressure ratings and are able to bend tighter without kinking like braided steel lines.
