If i did want to do fox all round are these the parts your talking about:

Front:
2.0 Performance Series Coil-over IFP

Rear
2.0 Performance Series IFP

Will these support the 6inch lift over factory?

Thanks for all your information, so much to learn!

The front you will be good to go. On the rear I didn't look completely into it. But to play it safe Id grab the BDS/FOX shocks. But if you're already spending that much money Id go for the resovoir shocks. Trust me sooo much worth it in looks. Id also go FOX bc Im running you're wanna be Bilstien super setup with Resi's haha. I have the spare bushings you're gonna need for this as well, so let me know and I'll get em to you free of chrage of course. Just collecting dust at my house. If you need help Id be glad to help research as long as you get them through Andrew, he'll get you the best prices too

Now are you still trying to get 9"? That FOX setup will be about an inch lower than the Bilstien setup. But you can always do a 1.25/1.5 or 3" body lift. What you thinking for tires? With oem wheels you'll be limited boss....

Ya if you can find the rear shocks your talking about that would be great, while i was on the fox website i think these are the only rear shocks they show. The 6inch lift is fine to start with. I was just trying to focus and spend money on the lift to do it right so i won't have issues with it 50k miles down the road.

What about the axle? Will i need an extension for that?


EDIT: also is upgrading to fox shocks gonna serve any purpose beside brand name if i don't do mudding? Would the 5100 do just fine since i don't do any serious mudding if any?

Their website and shock wording is CRAZY haha, confusing at the least.

The Fox shocks arent going to do anything than what I said early, say FOX. The RCX shocks will be fine to be honest...ask most of the board members. The Bilstien will be a nice upgrade, but if you want some eye candy spend a little more and get the 5165s I got. They do ride better than the RCX shocks and look badass at the same time

Whats this axle jiberish you speak of? What are your tire plans?

You can get the RCX 6" with Adjustable Bilstiens up front and rear Bilstien 5100s for proably 1500-1600. Add another 200 and you can roll on the 5165 resi's...

No sir, everything is included. The front driveshaft has a spacer but is included. All pinion angled are in check and taken care of via the lift kit

TIRES TIRES TIRES.....

The 5160 is a 5165. The 5160 is a direct stock replacement. The 5165 is universal and sold by lengths. Just like the 5100 is to the 5125s....

I have the correct 5165s. Well there are 2 or 3 that will work, but I wanted the most travel, 14" of travel to be exact. All you have to do is ask when you're ready....
