Similar to the blueprints of a home, every bypass shock requires a predetermined map prior to assembly. Each configuration requires a specific arrangement of tubes. King maps out each shock body plan with ink on the exterior of the body prior to assembly. This photo shows a typical bypass layout after it's drawn. From there, a center-punch tool is used to create drill index marks.
