Question Air Shocks on a Daily Driver?

I am loking for a softer rate spring for the TTB on my Bronco II, and thought of Fox air shocks.

Are they realiable and stable, or should they be left for use on dedicated rigs??

Air shocks are very adjustable with oil height changes and air pressure adjustments. Mine are very spongy with a v-8 powered truggy on them. I expect to spend weeks tweeking them to get the right balance.

If you are using the vehicle to drive to work most of the time and go wheeling every now and then, the air shocks are probably not your best bet.

Maybe coilovers are a better bet?




I am not really to concerned about getting shit, I;ve never used air shocks before...and they'll regret it when I'm not stuck and they are

Idiot, We have a newbie section for imbiciles like you!


Truthfully there is no way that an airshock (even a 2.5) is going to have enough rate for a ttb. The motion ratio is going to increase the need for spring rate dramatically. If you had a sas you would be better off.

Now delete this worthless thread and search.
