    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.

    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 ra4udysy_3b8771aeb9f27640a3b1b5bde9c741f7bac793ba.jpg
    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.

    Guess I haven't been looking long enough. Finally starting to buy everything, order some McNeil glass a couple days ago and it should be ready in a few weeks. Hopefully snag these shocks on Friday and get the ball rolling. Once school starts I hope I can take off my current setup and sell it to buy a Trac kit and get my bumper redone. Then start saving for the rear.

    I'm running the same shocks with the 90* fitting and 600lbs 18" coils. You could easily sell the 700lbs coils and get lighter ones. I've never had an issue with rubbing either.
