Think I have pretty much decided to go with the Stock height coil overs, 800lb springs, 1" body lift and 265s on stock wheels with spacers.

Would love to do the super lift and coil overs with 285s but that adds another 1400 to the price

Anybody with these brackets running foa coilovers. Ive searched many forums and google and have gotten mixed reviews. Ive read that the seals have leaked, but that they have fixed those problems. There emulsions run $120 vs fox at $207 and there rr run $160 vs fox at $260. Next question is extendes eyelets. If im running these brackets with superlift would I need the extended eyelets? And I dont see that foa makes them would fox's work on foas or other brand co's and where do you get the fox ones ive searched but havent came up with anything. I would like to give Foa a shot, bad reviews get turned into big rumors of a friend of a friend and id honestly like to give them a shot if they are reliable co's instead of reading someones friend of a friend review.

Also I am curious about bumpstops, where they have been mounted in this application and if they are needed.

Yep. The Superlift uses drop brackets on everything - so it still has the same issues.

It also doesn't matter what coilover you use - you will need an extended eyelet of some kind.

The only exception I have seen is the original Bilsteins that came with the RCD kit. They had a 'built-in' extension to solve the clearance issue (there may be others) - but it's essentially the same thing.

The Bilsteins are seen here:



At the end of the day you just need to clear the CV boot.

Just Google the part number (which is 213--01--238--A).

Also, anywhere that sells Fox Shocks can get you the eyelets.

Example: Fox 2.0 Coilover Shock Eyelet

I know it's been covered in this thread multiple times (pictures & everything).....just please take a second & look back.

You basically mount it wherever you can....it depends on how much of the stock mount get's removed.

You would have to look up the specs, or call FOA.

For example, the Fox 2.0 shocks use a 5/8 shaft, whereas some shocks use a 1/2" shaft on their 2.0 shocks. My Strange uses 1/2", and they don't make extended rod ends, so I made my own. I can do the same for any brand of shocks, provided I have one to work with. However, when you get into having custom rod ends made, they end up being more expensive than the ones you can buy already, and it negates the savings you may have by getting the cheaper shocks.

In the end, you're probably better off getting the Fox.

I love FOA's, price and quality are spot on. We run them on our race/play truck.

When did you get them. They stated that their products wernt the best a few years ago but they worked out the kinks and they would be great for my application. I talked with JD and he said the 6 travel with 3 rod ends would be fine compared to foxs 6.5 and 4.488 rod ends. Yall think I should have them make a set of rod ensa that are about 4.5 long like foxs, or add in the .5 that foas are shorter than foxs for a length of 4.488+.5 so a total of 4.988 long rod ends? Or do you I think I will have a problem with the 6 inch travel with 3 inch extension rod ? I'm having the order put in tomorrow.

FYI guys, the last set is gone. I'm taking a break from these for a few months to catch up on some other projects, but I will plan on running a new batch around the first of the year.

As always, pics of installed units appreciated!

Thanks

I won't be doing mine for a while, unfortunately. It turns out school is expensive and I don't have a job. But at least I have some nice paperweights for a while.

Yes, it is a lot of info to go through, but I would still recommend going through it. This is not a small or cheap project and you can get through it in about an hour if you skip the chit chat.

That said, I had begun working on a project of gathering all the relevant info and putting it into one document to be read all in one place without extra chat. However, I haven't finished it, as I haven't done my install and just in general havent had time to add to it. If you want to see what I have so far, there is a link in my sig to the pdf which has most of the info you are looking for. Hope that helps.
