Out of curiosity, which IFP did you buy? Fox makes a cheap "Adventure Series", a middle line "Factory Series" (slowly being replaced with the "Evolution"), and a higher line "Performance Series."

The "Adventure Series" is way overpriced, and performs about the same as a Monroe or KYB gas charged shock.

I guess it's hard to resist the credibility enhancing paint job and performance enhancing sticker on the Foxes.
IFP describes emulsion shocks? How's that work?

I got the performance series. They were cheap, 105 bucks IIRC. No paint on them fancy aluminum shock bodies.

This is what I am talking about, $500/set from RN

Product Details - Rovers North - Classic Land Rover Parts


Any comments on OEM springs? Do I have the buy the Genuine for $95 a piece or are the Bearmach at $27 or UKM? $50 a piece the same. Surely they are better then the $20 a piece Britparts. I don't want to lift the truck at all or it won't fit in the garage.

sorry if I wasn't clear: monotubes, which are single gas pistons with a dividing piston with a gas charge.

emulsions aren't monotubes (Fox has a separate line of emulsions, as you probably know)

btw, $105 is a steal for performance series IFPs. They usually go for $40 more a shock.

Fox's 2.0 emulsion is a monotube. Most of the quality aluminum-body emulsion shocks are.
