The assembly process begins with the shaft assembly. The Performance Race shafts are made from 1050 steel that are hard-chromed and micro-polished. King's Pure Race shafts are induction-hardened, hard-chromed, and polished to a mirror finish. Once the shaft finish is applied, King installs a billet aluminum rod end. This part is threaded to the shock shaft with a special thread locking compound.
