Well guys and gals i decided to go with King shocks for the rear. And ill be going with a 2.5 because Greg told me "NOT to get the 2.0 Kings" since the shaft is to big for the size. But don't know if i should get them with External Reservoir or as Emulsion shock? will they perform the same or no? cause they are $50 apart on price. The emulsions are $290 each and the externals are $340 each. Here are the pics.

yea the price is cheap and they also do free shipping. So the external should keep the pistons not so hot right?

I believe that is correct.

Wrong, has nothing to do with heat, cavitation of the oil is the main concern, as well as a larger N2 chamber to keep internal pressures in check while the oil heats up and expands.

You can have them anodized black when you buy order them from most places but it is like a 100 more i think. I would say go with the external resivor. The only thing would would have to worry about is mounting the reserviors but shouldnt be too hard. Piggyback would be nice but I dont know it they would fit.

I can get them in black but my truck is Silver with chrome and like the blue since it matches bada*s with my trucks color.

With the external resi the shock oil doesn't come in contact with the N2.....The oil is completely pressurized and this will reduce the oil foaming and then effecting the damping...for only $50 more is worth it...

Now the truth.....if you're NOT going to run thru sections of whoops the overall performance will be the same either way you go...street queens don't need the external resi's....
