Thuren still in business?

Post by RustyPW » Thu Feb 25, 2021 10:38 pm

Is Thuren still in business? I still haven't gotten my King shocks that I ordered back in Oct. Don isn't answering my e-mails. I've been real nice on the e-mails too. Just asking for an up-date once a month since the end of Dec.

That's odd. I just ordered a bunch of stuff from Don and he responded right back.

Try calling him. I can also send him a note on your behalf since I have a thread going with him.

Yeah the king shocks aren't his fault. They are almost a 6 month back order. According to a fellow airsteamer who specializes in cracking the suspension software on trucks it is because king moved to a new anodizing process.

How do you like the overlands? Thuren shipped them to me so I could get my other suspension comments on but they seem a bit soft in the rear.

I had a rear leaking Bilstein shock. It was the stock shock from 2005!

The rear Overlands are on but I haven't driven it yet. Truck is on loan to a friend who is moving. Will post up when I get truck back.
