    I can't find the right shock to fit my 2012 with 2'' block.

    regular 5100's are too short.
    the company I'm looking to buy from can't get the extended 5100's
    he says the fox 2.0's that have a loop mount on the bottom and stem on top aren't valved properly for my truck.. is this true?

    from my measurements, I need 16'' max compressed length, and 24.5'' min extended length..

    would the valving on these shocks work for my truck?

    Hey Ross, I don't know what you have for rear springs now but if you're going to use a 2" block (which isn't terribly bad) Get back with DSMS, call & talk to Sonny about some Billy 5125's , they come in many diff. lengths & are cheaper than Fox, & they'll probably fit your needs perfectly.. just throwing it out there...:)

    thanks! I was looking at some 10'' stroke 5125 that would have been perfect, but the mounts are wrong... my only issue with dsms is shipping to canada is going to be expensive, and I like to support a local business. but maybe I'll give him a call and see what he can do

    Oh, I understand about supporting the home team for sure, I know Sonny will give you the right info regardless if he sells you anything, he's truly a good guy & wants peopls to get what they want the first time...
