    I've found my 2.5 DSC run alot nicer now with added weight. They were pretty jarring without any armor. Ironically I've heard they come valved off the shelf too soft. Anyone else find this to be the case for them too?

    I find some weight helps to ride smoother. Where did you have the low speed knob before the weight? Seems I need to run 1 or 2 clicks from fully open.

    I've run them fully open since install anything else seems too harsh. Only hit front bumps a couple times I also have rear 2.0 with low speed adjuster/iconrxtleafs/timbren bumps in the back. I've since removed my sway bar and found that closing the adjusters a few clicks help with body roll alot

    What stops you from running them fully open? Nose dive or body roll issues?

    Seems fully open is too soft for me. It's hard to explain but it's like it's harsh because it's too soft.
    I will say that getting a new rear spring pack and going from 2.0 to 2.5 DSC also helped.

    Every truck and driver ride quality preference is different. We can definitely help the shocks perform better with our custom valving. In certain occasions we can even revalve the DSC. We usually valve the shocks to be nice and soft with DSC open, then customers can stiffen it up from there.

    That sounds like a good way of making things work. Do you guys sell a rebuilt kit for fox 2.5 DSC and fox2.0 resis with adjusters?
    I'd like to do the rebuild/revalve myself. I've contacted fox and never got a reply :annoyed:

    How long does it take for fox 2.5 coilovers and tundra rear shocks to settle? Also, how much ride height reduction should I expect?

    couple of weeks, I think mine settled in around 10 days. Lost maybe 10%, if that. Probably less. I think it depends on how much preload you put on.

    front coils settle. Rear shocks won’t settle, new leaf pack or add a leaf will in the rear

    I'm on Fox 2.5 coilovers with dsc (14" 650 lb spring) and I'm currently sitting at 3.5" and 3.75" center hub to fender. Should I adjust them down to 3.0" on both sides or leave them at 3.25" so they settle to 3.0"? I want a 3" left in the front.

    3” over stock height on a 3rd gen is too much. You should stay at 2” above stock height or less. You’re ride will suffer. You don’t want that now do you.

    Clarifying my previous post.

    Stock I was sitting at 21" and 21 1/8".

    After lift I'm at 23 1/2" and 23 3/4". In the end I want a 3" lift upfront (2" over stock). My question is since there seems to be a settling effect on the coilovers should I...

    A. Shoot for 3"
    B. Shoot slightly higher than 3" to compensate for the settling effect?

    I'm totally new to this please excuse the ignorance.
