Fox rear shocks, FJ on a Tacoma

Who is running the FJ length rear shocks on their 05+ Tacoma, keep in mind these are for the people running 1.5"+ rear lift.

What did you need to do for bump stops? IE: possibly lengthening them due to a longer compressed length

Thanks In Advance

I know how to make them fit, remove the FJ bushings by removing the snap ring and replace with the Tacoma bushings.

The only thing I was looking for was weather people are topping the shock out (not enough collapsed length).

On that note: I will do a search but does anyone know the travel numbers of a J66 leaf pack?

If this helps any the 5100 is:

0" to 1.5" Rear Lift Shock Part #: BE5-C476-H0
Extended Length: 22.94"
Collapsed Length: 14.02"

Oh and the FJ numbers are 24.45" extended and 14.85" collapsed. http://www.offroadwarehouse.com/prod...productID/3980

So does the .83" really make too much of a difference on the collapsed length? Ill be running Timbren stops with the setup

Oh and for 3-4" of lift:

3" to 4" Rear Lift Shock Part #: BE5-B110-T5
Extended Length: 27.28"
Collapsed Length: 16.34"

So from the numbers it seems like I SHOULD be ok especially since I will be running the Timbrens which "engage" start bumping sooner than stock...or is that the wrong way to think?

If I add the axle shims to correct the driveline angle will that add that little bit of lift needed?

Problem is I'm not running what I'm ending up with.

DSM has billys with a 16" collapsed and 27" extended shocks that they recommend for the 3-4" lift. So I would look into shock with those specs.
