Speaking of ADS, Holly recently acquired ADS. Hoping that helps the product development and supply chain issues. I know ADS hasn't really been ahead of the curve on technology but they've had solid quality and good customer service for myself and all my friends that run them. Fox and Bilstein seem to be pushing the limits on the technology side of things with King being not too far ahead of ADS in regards to their IBP. ADS just seems to keep things simple without all the extra features like internal bypass stuff or live valve.

Hopefully Holley just provides an influx of cash, an increase in production, and doesn't fuck with quality.

43" from base to the handle. Another 6 or so to the top of the spiral. I'm currently using it to hold parts. Haha.

Have to say that this fucking trick (using value tool to pull out res cap) didn't work out too well for me...

Why would I have a spare, right?!

Yeah I killed one of my bypasses and one of @Itaro as well. What you can do is put a bit of air pressure in the resi, and slam the shock shaft down before pulling the shaft seal and the oil pressure will make it pop. I bought replacements from kartek.

Yea, definitely will try it next time around.

Also broke my T handle spanner while adjusting height on vehicle...
Hate ordering one thing at the time and pay extra shipping, oh, well

Doh. Those t handles suck. I've used a chisel and the back of a broken drill bit with a piece of pipe to turn the collars.

Damn!! You MacGyvered the shit out of it!




I liked my T handle :sad:

I've done what I've had to do. I was actually given two different king t handles at one point because they snapped at various points. Nothing a grinder and a piece of lead pipe couldn't make work. Haha. Now I just try to get the collar close to what we want before putting the coil back on.
