**FYI I am running Fox 2.5 non-resi coils with Total Chaos UCA's up front with AllPro Expedition leafs and Fox 2.0 shocks in the rear**
I installed my Fox set up this past weekend but neglected to purchase a spanner wrench with the kit. After reading post after post on this site searching for info about this set up I took matters into my own hands. It seems most of you are running the Fox 2.0's with the teeth adjustments on the collar and those of you who are running the Fox 2.5's were able to use a punch, screwdriver, 9mm hex wrench, etc to adjust the collars with the holes. Since my set up has the small hole adjustments I took everyone's advice and tried everything to turn these adjustment collars based upon what you all were able to use.
HERE IS THE SOLUTION: Go purchase a strap wrench from your local hardware store! I sprayed some WD40 around the collars and threads and used my strap wrench to slowly but easily turn the coils down to my desired height. Genius!
So here are the numbers I came up with... I turned the coils down so that there is 1.5" from the top of the threads to the top of the top lock collar or you could say there is 2" from the top of the threads to the top of the adjustment ring. I had previously installed a 2.5" spacer lift so I am unable to provide exact lift numbers but my final measurements (from level ground to bottom of finder) are 39.5" in the front and 40" in the rear. Again I am not sure how much of a lift this provided me compared to the spacer but it is quite significant. The AllPro rear expo leafs are supposed to give 4" of lift when the bed is empty and 3" of lift with 500lb in the bed so based on those numbers I am going to guess I have 4" of lift in the rear. Looking at the truck it has a slight rake (makes since due to the 1/2" difference front to back) so I assume I got 3.5" of lift in the front?
Anyway I searched and read posts for months since I purchased this set up in Oct 2011 and just installed it and there were not many write ups for this set up specifically so I hope this helps someone.
