    I had it slide back at first and it was worse. Now it only rubs if at full lock and hit a bump...


    I really don't want wheel spacers I think the wheel fitment is perfect now don't want the tires sticking out..

    What reservoir? If it's plastic and doesn't hold flammable liquid you could carefully heat it up with a heat gun and push it in with something like a screwdriver handle until it clears because I wouldn't think it would need a lot of clearance.
    Edit: You also could extend the hose by buying a new one and putting it on or slicing into it and adding an extra length of hose onto it.

    i was just wondering if this is common. There is plenty of room to mount it in a custom location but the problem is they supply a bracket and the hose is designed for that. If I want to move it I will have to send them back to Fox to have the hose changed.

    Apparently on FJ Cruisers it's a known issue:

    Icon seems to know what they are doing:

    Call All-Pro or Icon and see if you can purchase a vertical reservoir mount. Should be interchangeable amongst Fox, Icon and WE, since the reservoir is mounted with just hose clamps. Just hope the hose is long enough.

    You need to move it up a touch. I had the same problem. Instead of moving it back toward the shock move it a touch closer to the front of the truck and your resi hose should now clear the coil spring.
