I had looked at the Kings. They are a lot more expensive. The Bilstein 7100s and the Fox 2.0s are both in the $175-$200 range. The Kings and the Fox 2.5s are in the $375-$400 range. Quite a big difference when you are buying eight of them. The truth is that I would probably never work the Kings or the Fox 2.5s really hard, so it just becomes overkill. If money was no object I would go with the piggyback Kings. Hmmmmm what to do???
On the valving, Bilstein offers the following choices 150/50 170/60 180/75 255/70 275/78 and 360/80 I believe these are compression/rebound rates. I have a note here from someone at Fox from a while back. They recommended a 30/70 for the front and a 25/70 for the rear. Why the different numbers between Bilstein and Fox?
