Shock cylinders are bored and honed after cadmium plating to ensure cylindricity and an efficient piston seal that enhances valve function.
Highly developed port designs on our 6061 aluminium alloy piston provide the famous King ride quality.
Large ¾” or 7/8” diameter shafts have a tensile strength of 100,000 pounds per square inch. They are hard chromed to combat rock bruising and micro-polished to a 6 RA finish for extended seal life.
Shocks cylinders are precision bored within x/- .001 then honed after zinc plating to remove buildup for a tight piston seal and optimum valving function.
Special long wearing urethane seals have been tested on 18 wheelers for 450,000 miles without a failure.
Heat treated stainless alloy valve shims do not fracture like plain carbon steel and resist deformation at high temperatures providing consistent fade free performance.
Wear bands are made from a Rulon composite that offers incredible wear resistance, low deformation under load and high compressive strength. Overlapping end design enhances sealing.
