    Yeah. Stupid Dakar’s. They’ve had the W shape since install. Still have plenary of lift and weight carrying capacity on them. So IDK.

    spend 1400.00 on a set of front shocks and have to paint them.. wow...
    frame is in good shape, not much rust 4 yrs. my tyger auto steps great shape after 3 yrs, hardly any rust, the fox fittings and shock was clearly bare metal , with no plating or any kind of anodizing,, just poor quality.. junk...crap.. buyer beware....they will be coming off and replaced with something that doesnt look like shit ,,rusty shit,, bought them from headstrong offroad, wont be dealing with them any more also.. if i bought them from Amazon, i could have sent them back,, for my money or replacement.. lesson learned,,

    Those of you that have had your shocks rebuilt, who are you sending them to and what are you seeing for price?

    You'll have to hit them up as cost varies a ton. Just give them a call. I've talked to multiple people there and they are super nice people

    What's everyone doing about the taco lean? I'm running fox 2.5 all around and thinking about adding a 1/4" spacer to the driver side. Thoughts?

    Just crank the the collar a few more times om the driver side. Do not put a spacer. It will over extend and bind up your cv shafts

    No worries, and I can understand that thought. It won't take much preload to make up for the lean. Since the coilover is mounted on a control arm, it will take very little adjustment at the shock to make a bigger change at the wheel. (rough example: 1/2" of preload may adjust lift height 1" at the wheel)

    @AccuTune Offroad What are the recommended rebuild intervals for P/N 880-02-418? I'm all about preventative maintenance, and would hate to NEED the rebuilt because they failed. Thanks!

    I set my high speed dsc to be at the firmest setting. I'm trying to dial them back and they seem stuck. Is this common?
    Can I back them off easier if I Jack up the truck a little?

    Mine are tight as shit for high and low speed. Same with the rear (2.0s). I put on some gloves and tried to get my arm in there for the best leverage and it worked after liberal amounts of elbow grease.

    I used a punch in the dowel hole to get it moving.
    I think I ruined them now tho. They spin in either direction and I get the feedback clicks.. problem is, they don't have a hard stop on either end of firm or soft now. They will just continuosly rotate.
    I think I wrecked them. Super stoked about that lol

    Slow speed dial still works proper and I definitely feel the effect of how they're set. Unfortunately now, I can't feel any difference on any high speed changes anymore. Pretty upsetting since I just rebuilt them.. I remember they were difficult to adjust prior to rebuilding once they were set to the firmest setting even from new; never had this free spin issue until now.
    PS I never messed with the DSC during the rebuild so I can't blame my own incompetence since I never messed with them mechanically.
    It would be nice to see an exploded view of the DSC to see what part of the coupling would have failed, and why it makes the adjuster gets so tight in the firmest setting.
