    Looking for some quality snap ring pliers specifically for taking apart fox shocks. Any recommendations?

    Yes
    If it is 8pm on a Saturday night and you are in desperate need of snap ring pliers climb up onto your work bench and clamp your nuts in the vice ...that would be a less painful and less frustrating outcome to Harbor Freight snap ring pliers

    Don't know if they'll fit the shocks but I've had good luck with channel lock snap ring pliers

    That looks about what I have. They work alright but I still fight it. I guess I'll measure the spread and figure out what size I need. Suckers are a bitch when your a six pack deep

    I use them on my uniballs mostly. Haven't touched a fox shock for a little while. I bent the tips inward to get a lot leverage and less likely to spring off.

    I used these, the harbor freight ones are shit and will break. But if there was a more rigid pair for a little more expensive I would go for it. I was in a bind and bought the channel lock ones from home depot.

    I got bored and put the skids off my Prerunner bumper on the polish wheel.
    Pardon the pose, I'm old and it was hard to get an angle.

    Pain in the ass is an understatement. There was a lot of cussing involved.
    They didn't sit right on the frame I had to weld in shims. And some of my welds look like dog shit. Good times!
