King/Lucky 8 shocks?

Anyone have experience with the King Lucky8 branded shocks? They look pretty solid but can't find much commentary on the site. Thanks!

It's a Kali thing. Dave hits it pretty much on the proverbial nail head

Kings are very high dollar and good quality shocks preferred by a lot of off-road racers.

Thanks. They are high $$, so I wanted to hear some positive feedback first.

They don't come with any provision for mounting the reservoirs. Personally if I am spending that kind of money I want at least some rubber pads and hose clamps, cmon. Also the last set said they were charged when they came, but they weren't. So plan on finding someone with a nitrogen tank setup.
