Fox valving

O.k. getting a set of used fox shocks. No resevoir kind. I am going to run Rovertyme 3 inch springs. ST with an occassional roof top tent (lets say 150lbs up top) and no front swaybar. Looking for daily driveability but want the truck to handle washboard as well. Any feedback on valving or valve setting for front and rear would be appreciated.

I'd like to see what valving works on washboard and daily driving also. What are your spring rates?

I'm running Emulsion 2.0 on the 110. Nothing on the roof. Valving is 40/80. I get some roll on the street, but they are great off-road. With weight on the roof and a bias towards street, I would think 90/110. Good thing for you Clay, is Off Road Warehouse is in your area. Go visit them, tell them your requirements, and have them valve them up.

Report back what you go with and how you like it. I'm curious.

HTH. Mark

I cant remember my valving but I went w/ HD 3" springs all the way around. When do you wheel when empty in the back? Me? Never...............I think my valving is 40/80 too! I had MD springs for rears for years and it would always bottom out............
