    I am looking for people who have the Fox Racing 2.5 Coil overs w/ remote resi. I would like to know how many millimeters of threads are showing on your shocks for about 3" of lift. I know every truck will be slightly differant depending on how its outfitted.

    I am stock front end with exception of ALL-PRO skid plates. I would like a starting spot for where to set them at.

    Also, where do I get the spanner wrench for these shocks as they did not come with them. I should have asked when I bought them but I assumed they would as all my previous shocks (motorcycle) have come with them. What kind of wrench do you use?

    Thanks guys.

    I know that i did 1/2" on the threads and got close to 1" of lift, if that helps...calling Fox direclty would be best. good CS and always answer the phone frm experience.

    if you do 1.5 inches that should be 3 inches of lift. if i remember correctly. if you do 1 inch of thread showing that should be 2" of lift .5" of thread is 1"

    Good question...I got my set on and I haven't even threaded them at all. Brian, I am wondering how tall my truck stacks up next to yours.

    Your guys didn't come threaded . So they are at the top of the shock , no threads showing ? Also you need 2 spanner wrenches . I got the cheap ones from ORW and wrapped a little masking tape around them to not scratch them. Bottom of my front fenders over the hub is 38"

    It's did...I meant that I didn't crank my set up at all. I got a different set of springs so I didn't want to lift it until I saw it on the truck. I still clear 285/70/17 KM2s so not a big deal.
