    Anyone got a lead on a pair of used 8 inch coilovers? These saws are beat to shit, would rather replace them and rebuild them then sell or sell them as is. New upper and lower uniballs getting ordered as we speak

    What? When they say "shocks tuned by TRD" they mean thrown in the trash for a set of blackhawks. Seems like a reasonable tuning method to me.

    The resi's are 4.5" with a 3.0" extruded aluminum shock body. Only $3K each.

    Quick question, looking to buy some 2.5 8" c/o found these and the guy said the springs are 18-700#. Would I run into any problems running these on a LT kit [​IMG]
    The resi look way bigger than most fox co I've seen

    Prob have to change to 90* fittings on the resi's out of the top cap, the big resi's are a bit of a pain to find a spot for and they have dual rate stoppers which you don't need on an 8" not really gonna do anything but they can rub on the coil, have to take off the resi hose to remove them the way fox machines the threaded area on their shock bodies.

    I like the shorter lower rod ends too but depends on what kit you are running and 2wd Vs. 4wd

    I think 700 lb is a little on the high side spring rate.

    Not an optimal set to buy unless they are a good price.

    2wd I'm planning on going with a Trac 3.5 over kit, once I can save up a little more. Just wanted to get some parts together first, was planning on buying some new SAW but I saw these go up for sale and the dude is asking $650 thats the cheapest I been able to find for a pair of Fox or Kings

    Thats a good price, I think you will for sure have to change to 90* fittings for the resi hose, can pull off the dual rate stop when you do that. Short lower rod ends aren't that much if you need them for the kit.
    Up to you

    Alright cool, they didn't look beat to shit like most the used shocks I've seen for sale. So hopefully with changing the fittings I can still get a decent pair of shocks for cheap.
