Fox 2.0 Performance Series

Anyone running these shocks?

I need to replace my springs and shocks all around (shocking). Plenty of info on OME, OEM, and TF suspensions, even some on the remote reservoir Fox products but I can't find anything on their latest (?) offering.

RN kit



Also I am getting some vibration in reverse and some at startoff and I think my prop shafts may be struggling a bit with the angles on my current +2 setup.

Currently running 33" Tires with spacers, I presume if I lower the truck to stock height my wheels will be too large but I can't be 100% sure. Shocks I have now are shot completely and providing minimal dampening.

I've been running them with OME 2" medium duty springs for the past two years. No complaints here.

Call RN about them. I could have sworn they had some kind of issue with them. I originally wanted these but they steered me towards to the Bilstein. I just can't remember why.

I replaced the rears on my classic with these as I had blown a OME, figured these were made in muricuh. I ended up sending one back as it was built upside-down

As a motorsports professional (I engineer roadracing cars), and having opened up a number of current Fox and RideTech (built by Fox) models, there is no way I'd pay for them.

Bilstein is doing the best job of building longevity into their shocks. If you are going to buy HD yellows or Sports, expect about 50k miles of street use. 5100 or 5165-style, about the same mileage, but better for offroad use.

FWIW, I change shocks when I change tires. They wear out about the same time.

Not made in America any more.
