ive always preferred pedders, mainly because ive been told from a few people (both friends and people in the automotive industry) that kings have a tendancy to sag. thats my 2c

For springs id rather pedders if you cant choose any other brands that is.

Pedders springs arent as bumpy/harsh as the kings, altho kings are a good easy replacement.

Kings are cheap. But I'd go Pedders.. Then you'll tell yourself "I've got on pedders product, let's get some sways, dampers, bushes.." :P

i'd never touch either of those two again. poor customer service, poor ride quality,

dobinson are the way to go. many people have commented on how well my car rides and handles. one of my friends replaced his kings with my setup after driving my car

After reading last few comments id also add that whiteline springs along with dobinson are very nice, used whiteline however been in car with dobinson, lil firm but might be shocks..

I will 2nd the notion of the kings being, uneven. :s

ive got pedders springs shocks and camber kit in my xr8 and it handles really good. ive had my springs compressed an extra 30mm and it still rides not that far from stock u only notice it on really bad roads.
i had kings on my old au futura and they were a much rougher ride but it just depends how much cheaper u can get them for and i think u can get comfort type springs now as well from king
regards from adam
