coilover conversion which shocks??
Im doing the coilover conversion on my truck and im making my list of all the parts i need ii decided to order my fox shocks from offroadshocks.com and cant deciede whether or not to get the fox coilover emulsions or remote resevoir is there any major benefit to getting the remote oil resevoir over the regular emulions theyre 60 buck more a piece which aint too bad for the price.

pluss i really like driving a lot on washboard gravel roads withs lots of turns:sombrero:
im originally from idaho but as soon as i get back from deployement ill have the truck in california so ill also be going to thedesert a lot also

The remote resi's will help your shocks from fading on washboards, if you dont mind paying the extra they are definately better. (They hold more shock fluid and separate the oil from the nitrogen)

Alright will having the remote resi help with the longevity of the shocks also?

It certainly does not hurt. More or less it provides more heat dissipation so the shocks don't fade. Heat = wear so eliminating heat is good.
