Question for all the superlift and rcd guys running fox coilovers

So i snapped my bilsteins about 2 months ago and have been trying to fit my new fox 6.5" travel c/o since then. Problem i was having is that the bottom part of the spring was hitting the cv boot and i though this would be a problem. I then bought the long rod ends for the c/o from fox, and now (obviously) the shock is to long to get in, i can compress it and bolt it in, but do you think that is bad for the shock? the fact that it needs to be compressed 2 inches while the Lca is at full droop? Also what kind of spanner wrenches you guys using, with the shock bolts in like i stated above, i have no room to compress the spring, the upper arm is in the way. Any advice would help big guys. Been around this site for a while and did a search-thanks, Ken

I would assume you want it to be compressed some at "full droop" so you don’t hurt the coil-over (along with using an insurance policy of limit straps).

As long as you don’t over extend it or bottom it out during the overall suspension travel...I would think your "good to go".

I had to compress the coil-over about an inch. No big deal.
