Want to upgrade to fox 2.5 remote resi's

I have been looking to upgrade my front coil overs. Right now I am currently running 5100's set at .85 with Camburg 1.25 Uniball Upper Control Arms with Camburg 4" spindles...with stock Lower Control Arms. Also, someone mentioned there is a difference in length in the shock. I am looking to keep mt stock fenders. (All advice and suggestions welcome).

Running 5100's in the rear with a 3" Deaver 10 pack leaf spring.

I am looking to purchase a set of Fox 2.5 coil overs with remote reservoirs. I live in orange county, Ca. Does anyone know where I can get a set of these in OC and how much they go for? (installed).

Thanks.

I just picked up a set from downsouth motorsports with UCAs and rear 2.0s for a great price. They are custom valving them for my setup too.

Give them a call.

They quoted $1260.00 for a set and they have them in stock. That sounds like a great price.

Any complants with the 5100's in the front? I plan to either get the 5100 or keep my stock shocks when I get my Camburg Spindles. Also what made you go with the upper control arms with the spindles?....I heard it was okay to use the OEM ones????????

No complaints at all with the 5100's - the only thing is that you have to take the shock off and compress it in order to change the settings. Sorta of a hassle if you dont have the tools, time and know how..or $240.00 for someone else to do it. Its just not that easy..IMO. I want to be able to change the settings and looking for a little upgrade with the Fox 2.5 coilovers with remote reservoirs.

My front 5100's are set at .85. With the spindles and Camburg UCA. I actually have pretty good travel with the 5100's and the stock coils - The coils have actually worked in very nicely and the ride is super smooth.

Yes, you can use the stock UCA with the spindles. If you go with a 2.5 coil over, you will have to go with a different UCA - TC or Camburg or something of the sort.

Just need extended break lines and will have to remove the dust cover off the rotors.breaks...no biggy.

Extend the brake lines up front? I didn't have to.

I have Fox 2.5 resi - I bought them from a very well know company here but I wouldn't do that again, I would go to Down South Motor Sports. That way you can have them valved and sprung specifically for your application and not the company's FJ!!!

I bought mine from a different company but Sonny tweaked the valving to my specific needs and I swear, compared to what I got from that other company to what I have now I feel like I have triple bypasses!
