Fox's rough, OME?

Hey guys,
I currently have 3in BDS springs and a 1.25 BL with Fox 2.0 Performance shocks valved by BDS. The ride is way to rough, i frequently drive on old brick roads and need a softer shock i assume.

I was thinking about OME but not sure which ones for my lift or if there was any other suggestions.

I just want to have a decent ride, now it is not even fun to drive and is extremely bumpy. THanks everyone!

Look at Bilstein 5100s as well, fantastic shock.

Just put some 5100s in all the way around and makes a world of a difference!

Something sounds wrong. Fox shocks are superb. I cannot imagine Bilstein 5100 riding better than a set of Fox. I'm thingking your coils might have more to do with it than you think.

If you haven't already, you can lower your tire pressure to around 28psi to soften the ride. Bisteins,OME, Ranchos are good riding shocks. I do like the adjustable Rancho 9000's, you just adjust the ride quality to your liking instead of others where you hope that one setting will fix your issues.

See i was thinking just like you guys that the Fox's shouldnt ride bad. I am going to lower my tire pressure to 27-28 psi and see if i see a diffference. Also, i need to extend my bumpstops to 2 inches but i dont think that is the problem. And for the BDS coils, most people say they ride pretty well.

And im not just complaining about a few bumps, it really rides terrible. So bumpy and you just feel every single bump even on smooth rodes.

Old thread but gather info on the BDS Fox shocks as I may pull the trigger. What did you finally end up doing? Did you lower the tire pressure and all is well? If so, out of curiosity, what was previous pressure? If you replaced shocks, what did you get and how do they perform?

+1 as I am looking at pulling the trigger on a BDS 3" lift with the Fox 2.0 shocks as well. I have read other reviews that say the Gas makes it even better than stock than the 5500's do. Give us the update.

I love my fox's with my OME coils. Had OME and then teraflex shocks on it before I went fox.

Ranchos 9000. You should be able to find your range in their adjustability. Aren't Fox shocks rebuildable though?

Edit: Dang it. Got sucked into another ancient thread

ha, so did several of us. Regardless, I ended up going with BDS 3" lift with BDS 5500 shocks.
