OWR Fox Coil-Over Kit Update

Just got some bad news from Nick at ORW-I was ready to order my Coil-Over Kit today and Nick e-mailed me and said that ORW is putting a temporary hold on the complete kits. They're still selling the brackets kits and Coil-overs separately, but they are going to get a few things straightened-out before they start selling the kits again. They've been running into too many variables between model years to feel completely comfortable selling these at this time. When they are ready, they will probably be offering a couple of different kits so everybody will be covered. I'm sure that when they are ready for re-relase, they will absolutely kick butt. I can't wait! Nick assured me that he would keep us all informed over here.

Wonder what the issues are? I didn't get my brackets from ORW, but I am very happy with mine. I haven't had any issues either.

It sounds like it is a combo of all things mentioned---steering stops, stock-or lifted apps, different style bump stops, plus they're waiting for a shipment from Fox.
Nick and ORW have been a great help on this, so I'm sure they'll get the bugs all worked out--can't blame them for wanting to get it right. I just need to keep telling myself to be patient.

Hmm.....well I think it's great to have someone like Nick @ ORW here supporting the community. Any other company would still let you order the parts, they put it on back order, and now the customer is waiting in limbo for weeks with no info from the retailer.


BUT.....what variables? Bumpstop mounts on the frame are the same....just the bumpstop it's self changed. Superlifted is pretty much well figured out, eh? Probably a dozen folks running they're stuff on Superlifted rigs.

Guess it's a good thing I got mine done a few weeks ago... Haven't had any issues with mine so I wonder what they ran into. Definitly would be worth the wait though
