    I would look elsewhere. Those are not an OEM Fox coilover for a Tacoma. Also looks like an extremely heavy rate spring

    You can get a part number of the seal cap, however I wouldn't even bother asking for that.

    I’m currently rebuilding my fox 2.5s with dsc. After 40,000 miles it’s time. I’m looking for pointers on which way to go on the valving. The truck feel stiff on the start of compression. Also I’ve never run with the dsc passed 2 clicks on high speed comp, too stiff. I think I need to lower compression valving to smooth out ride and then if I need it stiffer I can adjust dsc on the trail. The guys at accutune have helped me a lot over phone and emails. I don’t really want to waist there time any more and wanted to try and do it myself.

    Factory rebound is a #70
    Factory compression is a #55 with flutter stack.

    I’m thinking about putting a #60 rebound in and a #45 or #40 compression in and adding a shim to the flutter stack, a .800x.012.

    Any thoughts out there?

    Full OME Kit, Level 8 MK6 Wheels wrapped in 255/80/17 Cooper Maxxs, NWTI Plate Bumper, Flowmaster 40 muffler, Smittybilt X2O 10K winch.
    So I figured this would be a good place to ask vs starting a new thread. I have OME gear all around and Im so so sick of the lean. I have proper height on the passenger side but no matter what Ive tried on the driver side I get like 1.5" in lean to the driver side. I run the heaviest spring and the preload spacer on that side too and Im thinking of switching over to foxes in the front (either the 2.0 or 2.5) to add adjustability and put a heavier spring on the driver side. I do have a steel bumper and winch up front too. I don't think I want the reservoirs as I dont do anything high speed just want the truck to sit and ride right. I do already have icon ucas so Im good on that. I want to keep the 2-2.5" lift up front like the OME stuff provided to keep running 33s, in you guys opinions what would be the best set up, also unsure if I want to do the rear struts fox too but Ive seen you can get the front and rear for like $200 more so might as well haha

    I was looking at the 2.5 non resi fronts with 2.0 resi rears, SPC uppers and deaver add a leaf from Headstrong Offroad for 2400$ shipped. Then I found the Stage 2A kit from AccuTune Offroad 4100$... I mean thats 1700$ more than what I want to spend! Maybe the stage 1 or 2 kit is all i need? Is the Accutune setups really worth the price? I can't decide!

    Edited: Since I just read about DSC adjustables. I don't really need them. The AccuTune stage 2 kit would probably be what I'm looking for. As for the UCA is the Delta Joint by Icon better then SPC Adjustables? Also is the 3 leaf adda leaf better then a single?

    I am not an expert, so take what I say accordingly, but I have heard the SPC's are better in the sense that they are highly adjustable and I think are one of the few options that works well for specific lift kits (I think around 3"?). I have SPCs waiting for me to stop procrastinating.

    I went with the toytec progressive (deaver) 3 leaf add a leaf as well as the spc uca and am very happy with both. The spc uca give you the most adjustability available with both caster and camber able to be adjusted easily. The upper ball joint is also sealed and easily greasable which is nice because they don't creak or squeak like some of the other options available. When replacing the uca I recommend buying new uca bolts as they are much easier to just cut to romove and then install your new ones in the opposite direction so you dont have to bend your inner fender to remove or replace parts later. :fistbump:

    Just be sure to compare the same parts that come in our kits to other kits online. The custom valving we provide, is completely free. We have used the Icon Delta joint in our kits for a while with no issues, however we can certainly get you an SPC arm if thats what you would like to go with. If you have any specific questions about our kits, feel free to send us a message :thumbsup:

    What fox rear shocks are good for a first-gen with Dakar's in the back. I have about 2.5" of lift. I don't want to have to do a shock relocation.

    Can you tell me the difference between your tuned shocks vs ordering off the shelf? How's the ride compare? I cant afford the DSC versions as the Stage 2 is already pushing my limit lol. So I need to know if I am still gonna be able to put weight in the bed or tow my flat bed occasionally (couple times a year, if that)?

    Ride quality is subjective, however the stock valving that comes in Fox 2.5 Coilovers is too soft. Also, depending on how much weight in accessories has been added, it may be even worse. We cater to what the customer wants and how they will be driving the truck mostly. We really do change the valving in every shock before it gets sent out. With adjusters like you mentioned, the customer can also fine tune the shocks to perform better on or off-road, or towing etc... Since its a free service we offer when you buy direct, its really a no brainer. In addition to that, we are offering 25% off rebuilds when the time comes. Feel free to shoot us a direct message if you have any more questions

    so this would mean 2 inch's of lift on the 3rd gens, with about 2 inches of threads showing, ? because you have a 2nd gen

    i have seen so many differant answers when it comes to the preload, im getting ready to have mine put on my 3rd gen. this member has his set at 2.9 in. and got 2.75 of lift after settling. im looking at around 1 3/4 in to 2 in. max . for myself, i have preload at 2 1/4, but not sure if i will keep it before install, still looking for answers
    for every inch of threads = 1 inch of lift ..?humm

    I was planning on getting Bilstein 5100s all around on my 2016 crew cab limited with 80,000 miles in her.

    It’s a daily driver & I tow a toy hauler, but never go off road.

    I’m not interested in lift & have stock sized tires.

    What Fox set up do y’all recommend that is comparable to the 5100s?

    list is growing fast
    The TRD pro fox shocks are going to be your best option for what your looking for.

    TRD Pro's will run around 3100.00 front and rear.. you probably will need a Pro VIN to purchase a set, from what ive read..

    Hey guys, just wanted to post some pics up after the install. FOX 2.5's all the way around with ICON RXT leafsprings in the back and some SPC's in front. Install went fairly smooth, didnt adjust the preload as they pretty much nailed it. Thanks again, @AccuTune Offroad.
