    @AccuTune Offroad can you all make a video or article on how to adjust the hoses that go to the resi to come out at a 45 degree angle? I'm trying to reposition with resi and seen some where that you could barely loosen the hose at the resi and reposition and then tighten them back up. I'm really worried about letting out any N.

    @AccuTune Offroad thanks a ton! I really wish I lived closer to you all. I need to adjust the o-ring seal side of the resi. What size is that nut on the Fox 2.5 with DSC resi? (I've been looking for an excuse to buy a new SAE wrench set) What adjustments does your shop normally make on the Fox 2.5 with DSC resi? I remember I had to wrestle with those bastards to get them in place. The brackets had a little adjustment and that's how I got them on but that pushed the dials of the resi closer to the tire. I want to push the bracket and resi back further into the wheel well and away from the tire. I'm hoping that a 45 degree adjustment to the elbow will help with that.

    I believe that nut is 7/8". We do not make any adjustments to reservoirs on OEM specific shocks

    Rotating the fitting will help in getting the res mounted but be careful. If you turn it out too far you will get your tire rubbing on the hose when you turn. Ask me how I know this. And yes I think it is 7/8...I think a 22 mm fits too.

    How do you all get those damn res in place to clamp them without adjusting the fittings? It's like wrestling a damn bear.

    Do you think 45 degrees is safe?

    Too much. Mine were like this and they rubbed. Of course your wheels and tires may vary.

    Playing with some mounts today. Shocks will be in tomorrow, @AccuTune Offroad got me set up with some FOX-985-26-118 shocks. I’ve seen some people say the universal reservoir mount fox sells are a little to big for the 2.0’s reservoirs. According to fox the resi’s are 6” long so I cut about 2 1/2” out of the center of the mounts and welded them back together. Should fit nicely now

    How would i find out what kind of compression/rebound shim stacks my 2.0 rear resi shocks have? Do these numbers mean anything?

    How much weight do you have back there? Plate bumper/full size spare, anything additional?

    You can definitely run your rear tires with a lower psi if unloaded. Should help alot with harshness

    Hello everyone, I was wondering if you could help me out.
    recently I bought a c4 hybrid bumper, winch and fox 2.5s with dscs from a friend who's trading in his truck. The shocks have 14" 600lbs coils and are tuned by accutune. one concern that I have is that I feel that the truck is lifted a bit too much on the front ,I prefer performance over looks so I want to lower the front a bit if it is taking away travel. My question is if there's a way to tell when you have too much preload? measuring the coils or measuring the threads showing on the shocks?
    Also the blue knobs on the reservoirs are stuck do I need to loosen the Allen bolts on the knob or just apply more strength? And finally, I can see that there is a + and a - sign on the knobs which way should i turn the knobs if a want a softer suspension?
    Thanks for the help
