Got my Fox 2.0's mounted up...

I bought these thru Dragonfire Racing (pretty killer forum discount by the way), and had them within a few days.

They were extremely easy to mount up, took me about 1.5 hrs start to finish. For the fronts, I didn't even have to take the wheels off! The rears were a little tougher, but the dump bed made it a lot easier to work on. I went with replacement shocks over a long travel because of the riding I do - mostly trails.

I haven't given them a thorough thrashing yet, but will soon. First impression is that they are much softer than the stockers. I think the stockers were designed for more utility use - and to me they had a very stiff ride, my back told me so! The difference was noticeable by just pushing the front suspension down manually - with the factory shocks it would go down about 1 inch in the front, and the Fox's are probably closer to 2 inches. I have a feeling these are going to be awesome for trail use. They seem to float over bumps. I have not adjusted them at all yet, but they do have LSC and HSC settings - I believe 24 setting for each! Right now they are set in the middle and are a huge improvement over the factory shocks. As they came, the front ride height went down by about a 1/2 inch and rear was the same as stock. Right now, it still sits pretty level, but I will probably play with this as well.

As far as body roll, there is more with the Fox 2.0's... I think some adjusting should tighten that up, without diminishing the ride quality. So far I have only tested that on the street, but it does cause the Teryx to lean a little more when cutting the wheels back and forth.

Looks good! Now get some video of jumps, whoops, rough stuff, etc... and let us know. Shocks would be soooooo nice.

Thanks for the report. I will be installing the same set on my buddies teryx tonight. Chris does cut a heck of a deal and is great to work with. I will try to get a ride report up if he lets me ride his machine.

Thanks for doing a review. I can't wait to see how they work in the trails for you. You should be able to bring the ride height up by tightening down the spring retainer, which would most likely get rid of the body roll. Let me know if there is anything else I can help with or if you run into any speed bumps with the tuning. Looks great, have fun!

P.S. Little tech note, if you lift the car off the ground and wear a pair of gloves you should be able to spin the spring and the retainer at the same time by hand for most of the adjustment. Trust me it’s faster than a mallet & flathead with one tap at a time.

Thanks,
Chris.

I can get you a set of 2.0 with rebound but they are not going to be as cheap as this kit here. If you shoot me a PM I'll get you a quote.

This set-up for OE replacement was purpose built so that we could get a kit in for under $2K. We did all the valveing so they could drop in with minimal to no tuning. Personally I would never set the rebound myself I would have a Pro do it. I have been racing motocross all my life and I still don't do my own rebound. It's just plain and simply really hard to do and most people have no clue as to what they are adjusting or how. Most racers will tell you valveing is everything with shock performance, so to take the work out of it we had the Pro's do it from the get go, so you don't have to.
