First of all you may want to sell those Fox's and get some SAW's.BRAD D said:I searched but did not find much. Lets say you have 12" 2.0 Fox air shocks, at ride height how much should they sag... Just want to know for when I make upper mounts for them.
Why do you think SAW's are better?Easy Rick said:First of all you may want to sell those Fox's and get some SAW's.
SAW's are better out of the box, unless your talkin 2.5 Fox's???
For the obvious reason stated above. And also for some of the more minor reasons such as the misalignment spacers in the ends lock into the ball. This makes repeated removal and instalation much easier than trying to line up 2 loose spacers on the foxs. The 2" hex nut makes disassembly much easier as well. As for the insides they are more tuneable with zero aftermarket parts than foxs. The 2 bleed holes are recessed and tapped with one already plugged and a large unloading improvement can be had by simply swapping shim packs top to bottom so that the rebound is stiffer and compression lighter. And adding as much oil as possible, to lower nitro pressures, and not knock your teeth out on bumpy roads.TRD said:Why do you think SAW's are better?
Or do you just think they have a better factory setting?
I keep hearing people say SAW's are better but havnt gotten a firm reason from anyone who has run mulitple brands.
TRD said:Thanks for someone finally posting why they like the SAW shocks more.
Rebound should be stiffer than compression from the factory.

I can tell you that if you plan to run these on the street or really even off road you are gunna need at least one sway bar to maintain stability. Turning leads to the feeling of instability. Obviously suspension design can help a lot but be forwarned.
