King Shocks' reputation for high quality and a smooth ride is well established in our pages. Let's establish it a bit further. Our Sport Trac already sported the high-end blue dampers at both ends, but the existing front shocks were too long for the Dixon design. The DBR long-travel kit is designed around an 8-inch-stroke shock, which facilitates full suspension travel without invading the fender wells. For the final inches of compression travel, we'll rely on a matching pair of King bumpstops to keep things stable and controlled. The DBR kit calls for 2.5-inch-stroke bumpstops.
