    I barely rub a tiny bit on the 285s when I hit big dips I know it will probably run a lot crawling at full lock anyone else running that size? Did a cmc resolve most of the rub? I seen people start to do cab relocation I’m not going to ever go that route or put 35s that just seems overkill for me

    Anyone have any tips on how to deal with Fox's horizontal reservoir mount against an aftermarket steel bumper (Relentless Fabrication's Stinger bumper)?
    My steel bracket gets in the way of the reservoir. HELP!

    I'd drill a hole through the Fox bracket for the bumper bolt & notch the bumper bracket until the res fit

    The reservoir bracket is not the problem, so drilling the hole in it is expected. The problem is the steel bumper support bracket. If anyone has pictures of their similar setup I would like to see how your reservoirs nounted?

    I cut the fox bracket and welded it to the top of the frame. Just make sure the drivers side is clear of the radiator, rotate the hose clamp on radiator 90 degrees.

    Does anyone ever have trouble with Fox high/low-speed adjusters seizing?
    The outer gold low-speed knob has worked fine for me, but the inner blue high-speed compression ring sticks, as in unable to be turned by hand.
    I tried spraying a bit of wd-40 and then some penetrating oil on them and no change. Then tried to stick an allen key wrench in one of the holes in the blue adjuster rings and ended up breaking something internally, as it now spins forever.

    Known issue? Something else I should try to the other side to free it up without damaging the coilover?

    Yes!! Thought this was just me. I’ve had my changed, for color reasons, and they still are difficult to turn. Usually the first few clicks and and last few..

    I've also struggled with these. It doesn't help that it's a pain to get leverage (hands) in there.

    Seems to be the consensus. The last few clicks fully open or closed may result in a seized adjuster.
    May be something sticking internally due to nitrogen pressure or seal contact.
    I suppose if we’re needing to adjust them to the limits anyhow, different valving maybe be needed.

    they have always been hella hard to adjust. I use a mechanics glove to help get grip on that bastard and keep my hands from being destroyed

    Sounds like you were all the way out with the adjustment and broke the pin and or the housing by turning it to far.


    Get it fixed sooner than later so you don't damage even more parts and cost you more.

    A set I had last spring.

    That bar should be straight, it bent and came out of the groove that holds it.

    The IFP was running into the broken parts.

    Its not as simple as just a bolt being hard to turn, it has more to do with the internal mechanics of the DSC. It is best to get that repaired as soon as possible.

    I may be sending my coilovers to you guys sooner than later for some repair, spring swap, and some custom valving.
    A few preliminary Q’s..

    I also run a set of 2018 Raptor IBP shocks in the rear (OEM Ford Fox 3.0) — is this something you guys can rebuild and change valving to better suit a Tacoma ? Currently the valving is whatever came from factory on the raptors.

    My front coilovers are Camburg LT spec and I assume whatever valving comes straight from Fox. I have some 3tube bypasses straight from Fox for the front as well, currently uninstalled.

    Would it be beneficial to get the bypasses on the truck and record moving video of the truck before making valving changes? (to any of the 6 shocks) Or do you guys have enough of a baseline idea of what the Tacoma needs as far as valving goes, so I can simply drop off the shocks a bit sooner.

    Please respond in quote or PM if you need more Info or clarification!

    They have always been difficult and to turn. Even more so cause of the position on the truck. Reaching up in there all pretzeled up.


    @AccuTune Offroad
    I think some of ours are not seized. Is it normal them to hard to turn toward the beginning and end?
