    Anybody ever rebuild the 883-02-025 's?
    Pretty much the 2.5 extended ifp coilovers.

    Any part numbers for the rebuild?
    Oil, bearings, seals etc.

    Going to rebuild them with some 14" 600# on there. They've been great so far.

    Did you just install the suspension system, or is this noise only coming AFTER you adjusted preload?
    Have you gone through every nut and bolt to make sure it torqued properly?
    What is the measurement from lower shock eye to top hat?

    thanks, only after I adjust preload, and yes I check torque for all nuts and bolts, the measurement are 23" with 20 threads showing

    23" from lower eyelet to top hat is way too tall and you are most likely topping out that shock. Max we recommend is 21". Measure those threads showing, how tall is that exactly?

    Do you have any additional weight up front or just want that tall of a lift?

    yes I have light bumper with winch, skid plate, rock sliders, and I would be happy if I could get 2.5" lift, that's why I change springs to 13" to 14" but the handling is horrible :(

    What’s up guys,

    not to ask a dumb question but how are you supposed to mount the 2.0/2.5 rear reservoir mounts to the frame? It came with four screws that look like you’re supposed to drill holes into the frame but that does not sound right. There are not existing holes where it looks like a lot of you have yours positioned though. Am I missing something? Thanks for the feedback In advance

    They are self tapping screws for the frame. Install instructions and quick photo:

Rear: FOX-985-24-108 2.0 LSC paired with Dakar leafs and a 1.5” block. The rear shocks are made for a TJ front so @AccuTune Offroad built them using lower bushings and sleeves for a Tacoma.
    Did you get an alignment after adjusting? I have the same setup and 2.5” of lift made noise and ride like shit. First, the angles of your steering components are bad over 2” and can creat some binding. You might even be getting some coil bind. I came back down to 2” and my problems went away.

    you’re the man. I was hoping I was wrong and didn’t have to drill holes in my frame but I assume it’s not going to cause problems. Thanks for the quick response. I currently have them mounted to the shock itself and they ride way better than stock so it’s worth tRouble

    The 2.0 remote reservoirs usually mount to the shock body, but the 2.5s need to go up on the frame. Happy to help

    A few mods here and there and counting....
    I’m about to swap the 13’ 600 springs over to 14’ 650 springs on a set of 2.5 ext. Fox said to move the collars up an inch. That said, what about to accommodate the taco lean on the driver side?

    One full turn down or two?

    Where are you measuring on the top hat from? I've got mine installed and having a problem getting the lift height I'd like. Hoping I don't need 14" springs as I asked for them 3 different times and was told I didn't need them.

    list is growing fast
    If you don’t off road there is no point to any of this. Just get a spacer and block lift for $80 and call it a day.

    Hi, we are measuring from the top of the top hat (where it meets the chassis) down to the center of the lower bolt.

    So a little guesstimation then beings though the top hat sits up into the chassis a bit

    I have a noob question.

    I’m looking to get a Fox 2.0 Performance setup. Can I adjust the 2.0 coilover to get 3 inches of lift? Everywhere lists it of have 0”-2” of lift.
