    I dont understand why king doesn't offer the option to make them rust prof. They would obviously sell more shocks.

    King does offer anodizing but it's more of an appearance option than it is a "weather-proofing" or protectant coating. Hard coat anodizing does offer this but it's a little different process and probably one that they aren't equipped for. There are ways to minimize the corrosion, but any coating eventually wears off. I had decent luck constantly spraying mine with WD-40 corrosion inhibitor as it clings pretty well. Staying out of the salt is the only real long-term solution and frankly I wouldn't have taken the step of moving to coilovers if mine was a DD.

    Very interesting thread. I'd been considering Kings on my build. But I'll probably go with Rancho 9000's. I can toss them and buy new when the rust gets bad.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
