I hear you, they are pricey. Much cheaper then buying the fox 3.0's. They are worth it when you are ready for the next level.
I would say not a good idea. I have a feeling that a bushing holds a shock in place and a bolt just squeezes it hard enough to hold it in one place. On other hand if you are not jumping you jeep it might not matter.Would using washers as spacers cause any issues? They are just there to get the shock correctly aligned in the mount?
Max what springs are you running?Just to share some of my thoughts. So far after several months with these shocks I can say it’s the best cheap mod out there. With street driving it’s only positives for me. With gravel roads it’s a HUGE improvement. The only negative is with low speed rock crowing. I would prefer slightly more dumping. But it’s impossible to have every thing perfect.
Correct. Shock extensions are only needed when changing bump stops. And longer bump stops are usually only needed to keep a larger tire from contacting something. If you aren't changing tires, there is no reason to extend bump stops, and therefore no reason to add shock extensions either.Hey guys , I plan on putting JT oem fox shocks on my JL and had a quick question. Based on this chart(not sure if I’m reading it correctly) the compressed measurement of the sport shock vs oem fox is the same, but the extended measurement is 21.50” vs fox 23.63” so basically 2 inches longer. Does this mean if I install the teraflex 1.5 leveling kit (2” front 1.5” rear pucks) I won’t need to buy shock extenders?
I will be changing tires, 35s that run small and measure 34” mounted, and I will be adding the rubicon higher clearance fenders and removing the bottom plastic trim to made them flat, so I figured that won’t rub at all, that if I needed bump stops it would be for the bottoming out of the shocks and not the fender rubbingCorrect.
