see thats what gets me. my foxes are 1.5" wide. and i even inquired to someone else and i was told 1.5" was the norm width. guess we were wrong. oh well, two washer on each side and it works like a charm. lmao. looks a bit goofy but just paint the washers and theyll blend right in.

There sounds like there may have been some confusion with the spacing of the shocks. The brackets Jacob made have 3/8" too much spacing. I will try to PM or E-mail everyone today with the correct spacers.

I know I'm not part of the group buy or the bracket buy group....but....would different misalignment spacers fix the 'gap' issue for a better setup? Like thicker spacers?

Jacob,

My UPS shipment still says, "Billing Information Received." Could you find out why they don't show the package in the system?

Thanks!

Yup. Nick at ORW has hooked us up once again by offering the larger spacers FOR FREE!

I simply cannot say enough good things about ORW and Nick K. In fact, i didnt even contact him, he contacted ME and offered the correct spacers. How cool is that?

We are lucky to have such an awesome site sponsor.

Thanks. Was a little disappointed I didn't get my answer earlier, but it's all good. Just planning ahead for when I'm ready for the swap.

That's awesome to hear. I'll have to check them out when/if I need new coilovers.

I received a tracking number on the 21st but UPS does not yet have a package for that number. It still says, "Billing Information Received." No update thus far.

Ok I have a couple of questions about this. Is there any welding invloved or is it all bolt on? How hard is it to install? What happens to the ride if I max out the lift on the spring settings?
Thanks guys
