Erik D_lux I am of the opinion that everybody that gets adjustable shocks should get messed up valving from the start. If you give them a shock thats "close enough" then they will just run that till the end of time and never know any better.

Thats what happened to me. I ran my shocks for almost 2 yrs because they worked OK. I wish I would have gotten them with 90/30 valving and been forced to tune them from day one and truly understand the benefits.

I understand there is a group that dosent want to tune. Might as well say there is a standard like 40/80 or 50/80, and deal with your crappy suspension.
How can you just give them a shock with what you think is a good valving and consider them happy? 9.9 times out of 10 its going to be far from dialed. As I said IMO the closer you get without being perfect is worse. I think if you buy a coilover you should just be ready to tune it.

If your coilover suspension sucks there is nobody to blame but yourself.

Well thats the point I was trying to make..... All the shocks we get come valved for rockcrawling. If you order shocks its a real good idea to know what valving you are getting. Typically if your a guy thats doing rockcrawling thats what you want your shocks set up to do. Same idea goes if you are building a off road race truck or sand car.

Standard to who....? Thats typically not standard. When shocks are ordered through FOX if you don't request anything thats not what you get.

Glad to see it all worked out for you.

Beat95YJ Search. This has been covered a bunch of times.

I generally recommend Poly Performance, however if their is a local shop that services and sells coilovers where you are, you may want to buy from them. Coilovers are not a buy it, throw them on and run it product. You are likely going to end up revalving and trading springs until the truck is right. If there is a local shop it makes it much easier.

Btw Poly Performance does have a spring swap policy that helps out a bunch when you are trying to find your rates.
