    You are 100% correct, this photo was taken prior to final torque and trimming the u-bolts. We always trim those down so they do not hit under full bump. Shoot us a DM if you have specific questions, so we dont get super off topic in this thread. Bump stops come with Archives kit, work well. No on shock hose rubbing. The shock doesn't rotate very much. :thumbsup:

    Agreed! If anyone is thinking about buying a lift kit...give @AccuTune Offroad a call. Theyre the best!
    I researched for months. (Ome, bilstein, ...) read through countless forums. If youre going to spend the money, youve got to have your shocks valved correctly for your application. These guys also have the best customer service out there. They answer evertime I call with a stupid question. Lol

    If you are really concerned about adjusting the preload ring you can use a spring compressor like this without removing the coilover. Attach them with the truck on the ground, then jack it up and the spring is already compressed. Personally though, I have had no issues with adjusting under a loaded spring. Just get the tire in the air. And like others have said no spanner wrench, use a 5/16 punch.

    Grab a punch, lift the truck up, drown the threads in lube and you'll be OK.

    After marring my brand new shocks with a cheap spring compressor I order the SPC compressor listed above, I also order the Fox wrench for my shocks

    Anyone have Factory 2.5 w/ res front (0-3") and Performance 2.0 w/ res (0-1.5") in the rear or similar? I'm thinking of getting that without AAL for an around 2/1 lift. Thoughts on performance and look? Recommendations of getting the AAL or not? I haul hefty loads in the bed, occasional trailer, but only a couple times a month half the year. For now the full stock has been doing fine hauling as is.

    @lukeoct8 The shocks themselves will not give you lift in the rear. You will have to either add a block or add a leaf or new leaf pack to achieve rear lift. Based on you saying that you tow and haul things I would go that route. Looks I would say I'm biased bc I have a fox setup and besides it being beautiful it rides like a dream. I have a few pics on my profile as well as a few posts back if you wanna check it out:thumbsup:

    Wow, 123 pages. So I made it through the first 10 pages but way to much reading so I will ask some questions. Have a '19 TRD Pro and with cali raised sliders, diamondback bed cover, and prinsu roof rack. Just got some 17" SR8 -10 offset wheels with 275/70/70 Falken Wildpeaks. Well after some cutting, trimming, heating liners, and also probably needing a cmc before taking offroad. I am now looking at upgrading the suspension.....yes yes yes....changing a Pros suspension (If I did it all over, I would have gotten an OR and put the money into suspension, but live and learn). Also will probably do a cbi front bumper later.

    Love the ride and smoothness of the stock Pro suspension. Doesn't feel like a truck in my opinion. I do a little off roading from time to time, but nothing major as there isnt a lot around me here in DFW.

    So my question is this.
    1. What is equivalent to how the pro feels now (I do not want to downgrade) but would give me a little more lift?
    2. What is the difference between the Fox Level 3 and 4 kits on Headstrong Off-Road?
    3. Do I need to do a diff drop with these as well?

    Or anymore words of wisdom.

    If you don't want to downgrade the TRD Pro suspension, then I would suggest sticking to a Fox Suspension System. Fox 2.5 w/DSC would be a nice upgrade from what you have now. The shocks can be tuned to ride how you want, and the DSC adjusters will allow you to fine tune it even more. If you're only looking for slightly more lift than you have now (stock TRD Pro comes with 1" lift), maybe just stick to an add-a-leaf in the rear.
    You shouldn't need a diff drop, we don't feel they are necessary. If you have specific questions, feel free to shoot us a message!

    Yes. Those do work but you’ll have to remove the coil over. Well, you might be able to wedge it in there buts it’s way easier off the truck.

    At the bottom of the shock body, where the shaft goes into the body there should be a stamped part number on there. But it will be a slightly different P/N than what you will find online. Post that P/N and I can tell you what they are.

    Alright guys the the time has come to choose the coil color, need your help. Black on black on black, or keep the silver and clean them up? These are 2.5 IBP’s

    list is growing fast
    If you go with black, blackout the hose fittings as well.

    I think I'm going to stick with the silver. Painting the fittings would have me be a little concerned if I needed to change anything out in the future if I decide to keep these guys. Plus the silver with the black background looks killer I think.

    I would stick with silver but wouldn't paint, powder coat it.

    I'm going to use Steel-It, since using I've found out the corrosion resistance is just on par with powder coat but the nice thing is touch up is so much easier.
