AIRSHOCKS

The air bypass provides the light weight and infinite height adjustability of our air shock, common on competitive rock crawlers, with the position sensitive damping control of our bypass design. This shock is a prime example of King’s custom built for your application approach. The air bypass works great on competition rock racers, a light weight desert play car or long travel sand buggy. Whatever your application, King Shock Technology has the solution to your damping requirements. Once you experience King shocks you will know, there really is a difference. Nothing rides like a King.

Air Shock - Air Bypass Features

Feature 1 1. O-ring on shaft aids in setting ride height and gauges shaft travel. Feature 7 7. The heat treated 6061 aluminum alloy piston has our highly developed port configurations, specific to air shock applications, that contribute to the unique damping performance and famous King ride quality.
Feature 2 2. Shock cylinders are precision bored to within +/- .001, then honed after cadmium plating to remove buildup for a tight piston seal and optimum valving function. Feature 8 8. Heat treated stainless alloy valve shims have a unique grain structure that does not fracture and remains stable at high temperatures to maintain consistent valve function.
Feature 3 3. Bypass tubes are aircraft quality tig welded to the bodies then pressure tested to 300 psi before getting cadmium plated. Welded and plated bodies are then honed to assure a precision seal and proper valving function. Feature 9 9. Wear bands are made from an exclusive Teflon bronze composite that wears longer than any other material available. Overlapping end design enhances sealing.
Feature 4 4. Bypass tubes offer high flow rates in a compact low profile design. Available in several time tested tube placement patterns or built to your custom specs. High flow bypass valves allow precise adjustability with no unregulated bypass flow. Feature 10 10. Gun drilled for weight reduction, large 1-1/4” or 1-5/8” diameter shafts have a minimum tensile strength of 75,000 pounds per square inch. They are hard chromed and micro-polished to a 6 RA finish for extended seal life.
Feature 5 5. Bypass ports are cnc drilled then hand deburred and polished before welding. Feature 11 11. Rod end threads into hollow shaft and rides on steel Teflon lined spherical bearings for smooth articulation and long life with no metal to metal contact.
Feature 5 6. Aluminum components are machined from aircraft quality billet.
