    Hoping somebody can help me out with making a decision... I've got about $1,500 to spend on a suspension. I drive a 2017 TRD OR w/ an RCI bed rack and Tepui tent that I keep on the back most of the time. Throw in another 100-200lbs of gear when I go camp ( I want a slight rake ). Mostly FSRs when I go with some light off roading so I'm not looking to lift over 2" but want to soak up the rough FSRs pretty well.

    With that said I was looking at the Fox Level 1 kit from Headstrong for $1,200 with their AAL in the rear. Then I found a kit from ShockSurplus for the same price but with what appears to me a much better rear shock option ( it's rebuildable corrrect? ). Wouldn't it be a better option with an AAL that'll add 2" in the rear? Or, if there's a better option for my price range let me know!

    I was looking for something similar and contacted Marie at headstrong. The level 1 from fox rears are not recommended with an add a leaf. I went with the 2.0 up front and 2.0 rears with resi along with the deaver add a leaf. I’m only looking for 1” of lift all around and a slight rake. I have an ARE topper on the back and maybe 100lbs of gear in the back. You could do the same for around $1425

    im currently about to do the same thing.

    looking at cerakote. I called fox and they suggested against powder coating and recommended cerakote because the powder coat does not dissipate heat well. looking into the elite series, i have this on a pistol and the carbon just wipes off, it also has the best chemical resistance of all the cerakoting.

    https://www.cerakote.com/project-gallery/35048/cerakoted-e-160-concrete

    with a black coil.

    https://www.cerakote.com/shop/cerakote-coating/E-100/blackout

    although the metallic look is bad ass, but they dont have that option in the E-series. got some swatches coming. i noticed your wheels were bronze, i think the body in bronze, and blacked out coil would look mean.




    GOT a question, the coil that comes on the FOX extended travel DSC coilovers is 13" 600?

    A quick search and you’ll find Toyota dealers who sell OEM suspension parts if you want to go that route.

    probably just gonna buy a new set for the front, maybe some kings that are adjustable... probably not long before the other side breaks from rust, like the left side did. lost about 4 inches from the bottom of the spring, rusted and split long ways in half,

    Yesterday the line on my rear shock 2.0 w/ remote (no adj. resi) Took a Sh*!. Started leaking really for no apparent reason. (Maybe 2k miles on them) No rubbing, no flexing, and definitely no abuse. I can't for the life of me figure it out. It's not loose. I checked. Lost all the fluid on my garage floor. Bottom line... Hose leaked. Gotta send it in for warranty work. So, looking for a replacement in the meantime, as it's my DD. I'm not against buying a brand new one and having a spare in the end. Just looking for the best deal I can find. Anyone have one laying around? Or, know where there is a great deal on picking up a new single replacement?

    Anyone have a Fox Lift and replace their coil with something to enable a 3" lift and handle weight of some armor?

    may i ask what you are replacing it with. i dont think i will stick with fox, got an email out to fox for a replacement coil, but dont expect to hear back.
    what would equal the ride quality of my current Pro fox front setup, thanks

    Been watching this fox thread (Along with some others) for a while now. Gotta say, I'm inches from pulling the trigger on the 2.0 setup. I haven't gotten a solid answer yet so I thought I would just ask. Straight out of the box without any adjustments, are you guys running a differential drop to offset any positive angles on your CV's? My understanding is that out of the box will provide roughly 1' of lift, doesn't seem like it would require a differential drop but unsure on how much the 2.0 setup will affect the CV angles.

    Other question, are you guys running any rear lift option when just using the 2.0's out of the box without any adjustment? Looking for a level stance since I don't tow or put much weight in the bed. Thanks!
