Exclamation fox 2.5 coil overs and 2 rears ?'s (all pro leaf)

I just got a package deal for them from offroadwarehouse. Here's a link to it: http://www.offroadwarehouse.com/prod...roductID/39119 I didn't go with the all pro custom ones cause money was kinda slim but I really wanted the fox's. Everyone I've talked to has said these will work fine since i have the tc uca, and a new rear leaf pack. My concern however is that the rear shocks I may regret I just bought will not fit properly to the all pro 3' leaf in the back, since they may be too short. I was wondering if anyone else has this setup, and how it feels etc. The length on them off road says is Ext. length:22.27" & Col. length:11.37" Please let me know yalls feelings and or concerns with the setup. Thanks, Cory

the rear shocks are to be used w/ stock leafs, or stock height rear end

your good to go on the front, but the rear shocks are too short

Get the FJ rear shocks instead, and have them re-valved for your truck. The FJ shocks are longer, and the piggyback will be positioned on the top.

There are a few people here that have done that.

why would offroadwarehouse pair stock travel rear shocks with a front setup intended to provide lift?

I am guessing because that is the one that Fox makes specifically for the Tacoma.

I also contacted Downsouth about the length of the Tacoma shock, and they told me to get the FJ rear shocks as they are 2" longer. The only thing is that they have to be re-valved for the Tacoma.

Fox Tacoma rear shock (980-02-372-A)
Ext. length:22.27" & Col. length:11.37"

Fox FJ Cruiser rear shock (980-02-417-A)
Ext. length:24.45" & Col. length:14.85"

if i'm right though, thats really dumb

Ya i mean why would they sell it for 0-3 inches of lift with the tc uca, I think the extended length from all pro is pretty close to what i posted but im not positive. If i have to return it, can i setup the front coil over without doing anything to the back for a week.

Sure, I just put my fox 2.5's on yesterday and I dont have anything done to the rear yet, I have the front set at 2'' of lift. Youll love those things, I do already.

ya just called i'd have to get the fj ones, so now i'm debating whether to get the all pro rears and sacrafice 300 bucks to get the adjuster. They said all pro's are the fjs pretty much with the adjuster for compression any opinions on either. Edited: or I can go with a smaller leaf, aal, which may be best since the rear may be ass high right now

I thought about those but some people were saying they were a little stiff, I wanted the all pro 3' simply because I heard the give on em was the softest ride/best offroading after they wore in. Then again I've never had either so

The only time you will notice a change is if you have a lot of weight in the back and even then it will be a slight change.
