Ok my Hayabusa King Sand Car is just way too soft!
I'm bottoming out if I get the slightest amount of air and at the bottom transition of every hill. G out I think you guys call it

I ordered rebuild kits 8 and 15 shim stacks and a nitrogen filling setup. Time to get this thing dialed in.

My set up in the front was initially a.
12 stack on Rebound - 10 stack on compression
Front springs are 200 over 250 on King piggyback's
Car weighs 1600 - 1800 lbs with passengers

Called King and they said it seemed like the stacks were backwards and to change it to 10 stack rebound - 12 stack compression and adjust from there.

What is everyone else with King shocks running for valving, springs and nitrogen pressure.
Do the flutter stacks work best for the dunes?

I would love to be able to get this thing a few feet off the ground!!

Every car is different. Every driver has different preferences. Getting a car to handle to your taste is a lot of work with lots of trial and error. If you are serious , buy a master shim kit and dive in! Keep records of what you do each time with notes so you can make intelligent changes.
