FOX 2.5 Resi Coilover question

Hey guys, I just got my Fox 2.5 and I was wondering about how much thread is needed to get about 2.75-3" lift out of them. Anyone running that same setup?

I have the all pro front bumper and I'm not long travel.

Btw how much did you pay for your c/o's?
I've read 1.5" I've read 4.3" I would just like to try and adjust them before I put them on the truck.

If whoever decides to get a set of these dont do the 4" of thread like all pro says....
you will get a terrible ride and they will make bad popping/clunking sounds.

I have about 2.5" of thread showing on the passenger side and 2 3/4" thread on the driver side and I think they are perfect.
lol yes I quoted myself

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

It varies alot by vehicle. Start with 2" thread, and adjust from there. Setting them at 3" is gonna give a pretty stiff ride. You may want to go 2 to 2.5". Its gonna take a few days to ge the height right.

I think im at 2.5" of lift.

I had them at the 4" of thread like allpro said and that was absolutly terrible. If I was 4wd that would have destroyed my front end. I backed off about an inch and it was still bad, jacked it back up and backed down some more...

like chris said, start at 2" and go up a little at a time.

Im at 2 1/2" on the pass side and 2 3/4" on driver side to account for the fuel tank

you can check my build page for pics of how it sits. the last page has new pics

So they are being rebuilt at the moment.

It was weird, they ran great at first but after a little while they broke down

Never buy C/O's used I guess..

Anytime you buy used CO's, you need to get them rebuilt before installing them on your truck.
