7" Sky King Coilovers

I pulled these off a buggy I just picked up. Not sure what year they are and what the springs rates are. $650 for the pair obo. Located in Hot Springs. Shipping on your dime. I switched to a different set up there is nothing wrong with them.

Those are actually King coilovers, branded by Skyjacker. They were used on 2nd gen Dodge Ram trucks as part of a 7" kit upgrade. Not many people used them because it was so expensive and the coilovers didn't have as much travel as a real set of Kings, plus they are just single-rate. That's a good price on them though - when they actually do come up for sale, they tend to be a couple hundred more than that. Skyjacker sells a conversion bracket that bolts into the upper coil mount in place of the shock tower that will allow anybody with a Ram truck to run these. 3rd and 4th gen guys, you could probably run them and get 5" of lift or so, depending on the spring rate.


That's all of the info I have on them... they're kinda rare.

I really have no use for them but what kind of trades are you interested in? I was even thinking about using them to do a rear 4 link but the spring rate will be too high and they dont have enough travel. I have Chevy 350 aftermarket parts, some good 37" Toyo MT spares, probably some old CJ8 parts, not sure what else. I could do some custom fab on my CNC table in exchange.

I guess I should have said cash + trades because I will need a little cash on top with trades. BUt if anyone wants to make a cash deal PM and I can make you a good deal on them.

Sorry but I really don't need any of the things you have up for trade. Maybe cash and some cnc work but that would be it.

Turns out these may have also been used on a Jeep. I didn't realize they were made for them as well. So there is no telling what the spring rate is but it should be relatively easy to find out once you put some weight on them. So these might work with more than just heavy trucks. Being that they were on your buggy, they are probably the Jeep coilovers. What is the center to center measurement fully extended?

I'll check when I get back into town. I did see on the quadratec website they sell brackets for Jeeps. Very pricey at 300.00 but if you get the coilovers cheap you could come out pretty good on them. Also thought you could probably get them on Toys as well. They have a bunch of overspray on them that I am cleaning up as well and will retake pics.

I don't know how to tell the spring rates. But if someon tells me there stamped ill take a look. Like I said they were on a buggy. I have a guy locally interested so cash is key. I don't need anything for my vehicles but what were you thinking on trade? I still want some $$$$ with trades.

Well, I do know all King springs had the rate stamped into the top or bottom of the spring. And I'm almost positive the springs are from King. So they should be listed on there.

Just got home. The extended length is 27.5" Travel of the shock before it bottoms out is 8.25" so that would give you compressed length of 19.25" THe body of the shock is 2.5". I could not find a spring rate anywhere on the coils.
