Fox or Walker Evans racing shocks

I finely decided on my new suspension.

For the rear Iím ordering 3 inch lift kit from allprooffroad.com.
Kit comes with:
3inch leaf springs
Spring bushing
Rear break lines
Fox or Walker Evans racing shocks both are adjustable with reservoirs.

I just donít know which shocks to go with. Does any one here has any input on Walker Evans or should I go with Fox ?


My front set up will be:

4Ē Camburg spindles with Fox or Walker Evans 2.0 coil overís with reservoirs.

OEM wheels, Spidertrax wheel spacers and the tires are 285/75/16

Will the 4 inch spindles work with OEM wheels and Spidertrax spacers ?



PS: I will have following items for sale soon as I put my new suspension on.

AAL 1.5 inch of the lift on the rear and 4 5100ís parts are about 6 months old.

Fox.

Just because they are both remote reservoir shocks, don't think they're equal. Note the difference in the reservoir sizes:


The Fox shocks are higher quality and can handle more abuse too. In the comparison shot below you can see how bent the W/E shock is after 1 short desert run.

Note: The Fox coilover above is a 2.5" shock. The adjustable ones are 2.0" shocks but the same information still hold true.

Thanks MJP2, for the input, the price difference between the two is minimal so I guess I will go with Fox.

Mjp2 where in Nj are you ?
