I noticed a slight squeaking noise from one of my rear Mopar Fox 2.5 shocks. Upon compression/decompression it makes a slight squeak, and also when I shake the shock I can hear a very slight sloshing liquid inside. There are no visible leaks and the shock appears to compress/decompresses just fine.

Has anyone here had an experience with the Fox rebuild process on the Mopar 2.5 shocks?

No, unfortunately I don't have any experience with rebuilding shocks and I don't have the tools to do so either. But I would if I had the knowledge and tools.

it’s a trick question, he said Mopar shocks, not Mopar Fox shocks….😂😅
Hmmm. Will Fox even rebuild these? Shouldn’t it go through Mopar for the performance parts warranty?

Another complicated question… lol, fox makes the 2.5s exclusively for Mopar lift , can’t buy them off the shelf( or at least that’s how it used to be) so is it a Mopar shock, or a fox shock made for Mopar ??🤷‍♂️

It’s a weird in-between spot where they still allow the Fox name to be on the shocks, but I am fairly sure it’s 100% treated as a Mopar warranty. Now, you may be able to pay fox to fix them, but why bother if you can warranty out a single shock?

Given that they have Mopar part numbers, I would treat them as any other Mopar part and warranty it through the dealer.

These shocks are older than 24 months, I am the second owner as well and do not have the original receipt.
