Shock Valving

All:
I am going with the OME 764 springs on all 4 corners with a 1" spacer in the rear. I am wanting to go with the Fox Emulsion 2.0, but I am not sure of the length or the valving. Please list your recommendations for valving and length. FYI, I will be using the stock shock mounts and will be driving 85% on the road.

Foxs will not work on stock mounts. Search for explanation/solution.

They used to make pin to pin style and pin to hoop style shocks.. not sure that they do anymore besides some other OEM applications.

good choice. I have Fox 2 inch emulsion shocks with remotes on all four corners. Call Fox sales and they will insist on you getting the right measurements on the truck to determine the shock specs. I went with standard valving which worked well - if a tad soft at the rear.

I used a Rockware top mounts at the rear and fabbed a simple bottom bracket for the pin. Try to get the pin running at right angles to the shock, or the swivel ball will wear quickly. IMHO they are well worth the little effort to get them fitted
