Aloha,

I currently have the Fox 2.5 with adjustable reservoirs coils. I wanted to get the kings setup, but didn’t want to spend the money at the time for them. My fox rides great and there are no complaints.

Thanks for the info guy.  How is the ride quality on the highway?  I don't a whole lot of off-roading and  I know the real difference is on the dirt.  I have also been looking into the Fox 2.5 W/O the external resi  @ $1300 and the CST 1-3" coilover @ just under $1100.

If you don’t do any actual offroading then I’d recommend any of the good name coil overs. Just one thing, all the coil overs have a limited mileage warranty but you can get some nice Bilstein shocks that give life time warranty. Just my 2cents

CST 4.5-5” Lift, same looking coil overs.

Here’s my CST Lift front and rear

Btw, “PLEASE” don’t think that coil overs will be that much of a dramatic difference in ride quality, yes they’re noticeably different in the way they handle dips but not that much smoother than a great pair of shocks. Just don’t want you to blow all that dough and be disappointed, most of the ride quality depends on your wheel and tire setup. 20” wheels with E rated tires ride much rougher than 18”-16” wheels with tires rated at P.

Thanks for the info.  Yeah I know that it won't be a drastic change.  I would like a more planted ride and looking for something to handle the occasional dips better.  I grew up more of a car guy and always had coil overs on my cars for better handling.  I guess I still have that same fame of mind.  I've always looked at coil overs as the better option.  I really do like your set-up, but I would rather stay with the level look....(easier for the wife and kids to get in and out).   I am leaning more towards the CST coil overs, they're cheaper than the King and Fox and would be more than what I would use them for.

Bilsteins would be great for light OffRoading and you could always swap your front oem coils too.
I love mine but do wish I bought with the adjustable resi’s, there have been times off-roading I would’ve liked to have stiffen them up, next go round lol.

CST has outstanding customer service too.

Good luck and do keep us posted.
