Fox 2.0 16" Emulsion Coilover

I spilled some oil out of my coilovers, can you tell me how much oil they should have? Thanks.

I would stay away from the threaded body air shock. If you turn them into coilovers you will have a fairly expensive shock that performs like a really shitty shock.

Buy real coilovers and you wont regret it!

They should be filled 7.50" from the open end of the body. Fox is kind weird how they do their shit.

Thanks. So I need to take the end off of the body? How do I do that? I don't want to damage the shock.

Ahhh, you must be trying to fill it through the schrader. Here's a quick run through of the steps.

1 - Clamp shock in vice, shaft up.
2 - Use 3/32" Allen to loosen set screw on the colored cap where the shaft goes into the body.
3 - Unscrew the colored cap, use a spanner wrench in the two holes.
4 - Push the seal carrier down and remove the wire retaining ring.
5 - Pull entire shaft/bearing assembly out and set aside, keep the wear band that is on the piston.
6 - Fill with oil and reverse steps to re-assemble shock.

Edit: I forgot, make sure you have shop towels around, I can't keep the stuff off of me.

This is the same procedure to re-valve/rebuild except you have to pull the nut off the shaft to get to the valve disks.

If you have any questions you can email me directly ar Kurt@polyperformance.com or give me a call: 805-783-2060 (ask for Kurt)

Maybe you guys could post up the fluid amounts for all the fox coilovers. (for the guys running 10,12, 14, 18, etc.)?

Good idea... I am gonna see what we can do about loading oil volumes for ALL the shocks we carry to our site, not just the airs.
