Fat Bobs coilover?

Is anyone using this 500$ coilover?? I hope it would be a good entry level adjustable coilover

Look like chinese 5100 with a threaded body. I dont know anything about it. There may be less time spent designing, sourcing materials, testing different valving for each model, durability may be different. Unfortunately a picture of the exterior of the shock isnt very descriptive in these areas.

The company seems great send them a message on fb and less than 5 minutes later got a response they said the spring rate is 600 lb and they have lifetime warranty and no one has sent the coilover back in the 3 years they have been selling them.

Like I said earlier I never had any issues with mine and it also came with spanner wrenches instead of having to buy them like some places. On the tundra forums there was a guy that was doing some serious romping and ended up breaking a shock I can't remember where exactly and he called fat bobs and they sent him one without issue and he sent his back to them so they could analyze it.

Why not spend $200 more and get the Fox 2.0 coilovers? I have them and they are great, can be rebuilt and it's an American company.

Erik, I PM'd Chas about those and the code you gave me but didn't hear back. Any update as to the code you gave me working? I was also curious if the 2.0 could be rebuilt. I guess you answered that.

I don't have 200 more and I need to stop this just a little more and I can get this a little more I can get that. I'm not expecting to get these 500$ coilover and go hit some sweet jumps lol just want easy adjustability and decent ride. The just a little more game is not one I can afford to play. Also 200 more would be almost a 50% increase increase in price so thanks for your suggestion.

Good looking out man I just really want the ease of adjustable coilover. Looks like 10 people will be getting good deals though.
