Kk gotcha. Logan mentioned on one of the other forums that the part number was supposed to be 213-01-238-A, which is 4.488 in long, 3.75 in center to eye. So that's what we should be looking for. That's the longest available on poly.

Glad you got it ironed out! I'll hunt down my post on here..and correct my typo on my part #'s for anyone that comes across it.

FYI...that length of extended eyelet/long rod end will work for either a stock height or a Superlifted truck.

EDIT: I guess I can't go back that far in time and edit anything....See, it will pay for people in the future to read ALL the way to the end of threads! lol

Guys, if you're absolutely committed to them, and want to secure a spot in the next run, PM me and we can setup a deposit situation. It will be the end of February/beginning of March until they'll be ready to ship, so you it's not like you don't get payment in on them in the next two weeks and they're gone. I just don't want to drop the cash on another run and sit on half of them.

As of right now, this is exclusive to this site. However, if you know anyone interested, direct them over here. While you're at it, encourage a contributing membership here.



Anyone have any feedback on them? Quality, etc.? I know there's no way a set has been installed yet, but I'm looking for whatever impression you have of them after having them in hand.

Feedback

The quality seems excellent. I won't be able to install them until I get some coil-overs, but that will be soon... ($$$ tax return) I'll take a few pics of what arrived on Monday, (sent on Saturday!) when I get home from work tonight. The powdercoating looked great, the pieces were wrapped in some foam stuff and then brown paper and then packed together in a flat rate box with newspaper. Thanks for including some gussets also, I didn't think they would come with the kit.

Haven't got mine yet, but I'm not surprised considering it usually takes forever to ship anything up to canuckle land.

Man I want these so bad but I just can't figure out exactly how to know which coil overs I need. I have searched through this thread a few times and I see the part numbers people post and stuff but I don't know how to be sure what I need. Not asking for someone to take a ton of time to tell me but can someone just guide me? I have been going on the Fox website and I see 2.0 2.5 for sizes..I know I need extended eyelets and things. Just need to know what I have to get. I do know that I need the 12" springs and as far as the spring rate I guess I'd go 700-750 being I have no grill guard or winch or anything.

Do you need any type of deposit or a full payment or what? I have been wanting to do this forever.

Thanks everyone for the help. I know I am always asking questions.

I already posted the exact part numbers w/ descriptions for the Fox items required a few times in this thread (and others). The Fox numbers will change a little bit based on the desired finish and color...but they are all there.

I think you even told us you were Superlifted...which is the exact items I posted here:

coilover brackets

If you want to use Fox items...the part numbers are all listed (note my one typo talked about in the last page - I can't edit a post that old). The valving and everything has also been mentioned.

I guess I'm not sure what more you’re looking for?

A deposit or payment in full will secure a spot. PM me for details.

As for shocks, you want 2.0, not 2.5. There is no need for the larger, and it's a tight enough fit on our truck with 2.5" springs, nevermind 3" ones.

Your best bet is to read through this thread and "coilover sadness/madness" as most, if not all, of your questions have been answered.

If you have a torsion bar suspension (which I believe you do), then yes. The spindles will not change anything related to the shocks and springs.

I guess I really need to do some more studying on the sadness/madness thread. I'm just not very familiar with coil overs themselves. I go on the Fox website and I see quite a few different choices for different shock bodies including race shocks and "Ford" specific shocks.

Ean, I'm sorry I missed your part numbers. I know how annoying it is when the same questions get asked repeatedly by late bloomers in a thread. "What's the best muffler to get???"

Buy anyways..I found the part numbers for the extended eyelets. I'm going to do some more looking to find just what coil overs I need and which springs I need. I know the length and general idea of the spring rate.

Thanks everyone for the help.

Alright so I found all the parts I think. Most all from ORW...the spacers from Poly Performance. Having trouble finding where to get the eyelets.

Where do I sign for these brackets? :]

I assume they are going to custom valve the coilovers for you? I've heard decent things from them..but I wasn't impressed when I called them a few years ago.

My previous comments on valving and what a GOOD dealer should do for you: Any "real" dealers will give you tons of advice as well (and BETTER advice). I wouldn't buy my Fox brand coilovers from an online "shopping cart" without having them customized. More of my post here:coilover brackets

Careful on the spacers...you will want to verify these new brackets have the same 1.5" inner dimension as the RCD ones did before you pull the trigger. I think ME00Stepside said they do, and he might even be able to supply these side-to-side spacers instead of having to buy them from Poly...but I'm sure he will answer.

ALL very important info! Thank you so much brotha. I did read where he was providing some spacers with his kit but I wasn't sure if it was these spacers or not. I will def. do some calling and conversating with a company before I buy coil overs "off the shelf."

Great great info man.
