Fox 980-02-417-A FJ Cruiser Shocks

This shock does not seem to work on a 2nd gen Tacoma out of the box.

Do I need different bushings on the bottom to make it work? Do I get them from Fox?

Also what is your opinion on a revalveing? ORW told me it wasn't necessary.

Thanks! ORW said they have sold many of these and no one has ever asked for a bushing. Bushing hunt tomorrow!! Worse case I will call All Pro.

Just Sunday I installed the set I got from ORW and they sold me the bushings and sleeves that they recommended when I placed the call. The sleeves were unmarked but the bushings were from Energy, sorry no part number for you.

What they sold me fit perfectly except they were a little too wide for the mount so I had to shave them down a bit. About an 1/8th.

So I called them and got the part numbers for ya from my order.

The energy bushings are PN: 98107 G (He said the letter signifies the color, but I got red so not sure why it would be G)

The sleeves are a 12mm sleeve thats 1-1/2 long and 5/8, so I am guessing that means 12mm ID, 5/8 OD and 1.5" long if you were looking for something local

The part number for them is 4130.12mm
