Different King Shocks

The King bypass shocks are built to spec for each application. The bypass shocks are unique in that they allow multiple valving settings throughout the stroke of the shock. In a standard shock the internal shock oil must all pass through the piston of the shock shaft as it moves up and down in the shock body. But often you want a softer shock valving in the first few inches of travel up and down and then a more aggressive valving as it goes to full compression or full droop. (The monster shocks in the background are Kings built for desert racing Trophy Trucks.)
