    Default Fox 2.0 Shock Lengths

    I'm researching shocks for my JKUR and am hoping someone here can help me answer a question.

    I found the length specifications for the Fox shocks based on the Fox part numbers. I'm hoping someone can relate the Fox part numbers to the shocks offered with the Teraflex and/or BDS valving. I'm thinking I want to get the softer valving offered, but don't know which version to buy. I hate buying shocks based on a description like "Good for 2.5-4 inches of lift." I have my measurements and want to ensure I'm getting the right shocks for my application.

    Thanks!

    Call them or a distributor. If you have measurements they should be able to match them up and give you advice on which calving will be better for you.

    I was able to get the measurements for the Teraflex versions of the Fox 2.0 Reservoir Shocks. I got what I need, but wanted to post it here for the next time somebody else is looking for this information:

    Part Number Description Compressed Extended Travel
    1982820 Front, 2.5-4" Lift 15.50" 26" 10.5"
    1982819 Rear, 2.5-4" Lift 16.45" 27.65" 11.2"
    1982865 Front, 5-6" Lift 17.5" 29.9" 12.4"
    1982864 Rear, 5-6" Lift 17.85" 29.95" 12.1"

    Hope this helps someone!!

    I was there long before I started this thread. That is a great source of information on the Fox parts, but the data on the Teraflex version of the Fox shocks is not in that document.

    I had assumed that the Teraflex versions would actually match one of the Fox versions in dimensions and just be pressured/valved differently, but I was wrong. The Teraflex versions are entirely their own specifications, both in valving and in size. That's why I came back and posted the data on Teraflex shocks, figuring that someone would be looking for the specifications in the future at some point.

    No need to apologize. Both sets of data will be useful to someone that uses the search function in the future.

    I run the BDS Valved Fox. They are the shocks Metalcloak uses with their fox lifts. Great shock paired with the MC springs, soft enough valving the combo yields a nice ride on and off road.

    Running 37's, PSC Fenders & 2.75" bumpstop up front and 3.125" in the rear i use all but 1/4" of the shock travel on all 4 with no rubbing.

    Call MC for the expanded and collapsed lengths as they use the same shock for both 2.5" & 3.5" kits.
