    Preload is pictured but it's set at 7/8" passenger side and 1" driver's side which is currently sitting at 2-2.5ish" of lift over stock. I'm not exactly sure but it's somewhere in there, good amount of lift with almost no preload and great ride quality! Best of all these springs should last longer I'm hoping thanks to the high spring rate and low preload

    Installed Fox Racing Shox 2.5 Factory Series Coilover Reservoir Shock Set - 880-02-376 in the front and 985-24-116 in the rear and I love the ride. I got 1 more inch of lift in the front then stock to be close to level.

    That is definitely over 1 inch and a good amount of preload. What is the thread count?

    This was due to a different coating that Fox used to use in the past on their shocks. They've since updated their finishing process and it's no longer an issue.

    Yep, already red that.
    I'm not sure it's too much to ask if your going to drop 3 to 5 G's on suspension if it's going to rust or corrode prematurely...

    I completely agree. Which is why I suggested contacting them about what they've improved far as coatings

    I'm not sure what the process change was but Andrew at Accutune was the one that told me about it because I asked him the exact same question about the older ones getting ruined over time.

    I will say that my rear Performance 2.0 IFPs have stayed pretty much longer than the 5100s did!

    I measured pre and post install and I got 1” up front after installing straight out of the box. The truck sits pretty level now but once I lift the back it should have about an inch of rake.

    I’m running the 985-26-118

    They are nearly perfect with the EL095r Dakar’s I’m running. They would be perfect if they were ~1/2” longer as I have some travel left in the springs with these are fully dropped out.

    If it's been corrected, I don't see a problem.
