    What did you end up with? My fox 2.5 factory series came 50/70 way to soft imo bottomed out.

    I'm due for some new shocks in the new few months, and while I've been leaning pretty heavily towards ADS, it's posts like these that make me think I should just go Fox and Accutune.

    you definitely need to give Ryan and his guys a call, or a thorough email. He and the team are very responsive, and the work is good. Love what they did with my massively long 6" lift coils. The ride is stellar, and I'm on F-load range 35"s. They're stiff.

    Accutune rears came in yesterday and looks like the fronts will ship the week of Thanksgiving.

    I had initially asked for 2.85" up front to match the 1.85" from the RXT leafs but Mike at accutune told me anything above 2.5 will get harsh, so I'm going with their advice on keeping it at or below 2.5".

    Not looking forward to having to remove the stock to adjust, so I'm looking into spring compressors that will work to ease just enough tension to adjust while still installed.

    Get one of these pictured below. It's what I bought, and have used twice now, to adjust mine while on the truck. I have to disconnect the sway bar to get it against the coil.

    If you got 2.5s on the front than no need for spring compressors. They can be adjusted pretty easily on the truck. Many here, myself included, have done it. If you have 2.0s than I believe that is a different story.

    Might be a case to case basis, but I drowned my threads with lube and adjusted mine with no issue on the truck. I'd give it a crack and just be very observant and slow at first.

    Hmm. I wonder why because mine are probably cranked more than most people have theirs cranked.

    Drop bracket lift, so that’s a longer coilover and just appears to have more preload.

    Yep, drop bracket here too and I have 2.5" of exposed threads. Still a long way from coil bind.

    Call Eibach again today about the spring failure on the Fox 2.5s, long story short they dont Warrenty or offer discount on broken springs that were made for Fox.

    Nor do they sell replacements in the needed size.

    Wow, that's in rough shape!

    We have a bunch of those springs here that are take-offs. 13x3.0x600 are $20/spring + shipping.
