Post subject:  shock tuning

Ok, so im new to the whole suspension tuning world. We are running fox 2.0 reservoir shocks on our TREC rigs. They can be tuned softer or more firm depending on your rig and needs. Only problem is, i dont know how to relate what i currently feel to what i should be feeling, and what to do to properly adjust. Ive tried finding good sites, but all im coming up with is bike and atv/sidexside sites. So if anyone knows of any good informational sources, please let me know. I tried Fox's site too, but its just bikes as far as tuning help.

call rosco or dino. of all the people that i know locally they have done more tuning of shocks and have a shim kit too for 2.0 and 2.5 shocks with the information on how to make shims to change things. they can definately tell you seat of the pants feel and what you should or shouldn't be feeling. i'm sure rosco would go for a ride with you somewhere too to feel it himself. they have used the 2.0 and 2.5 air shocks but the information they have should at least give you a start on yours even with coil springs. also you will want to, if you didn't when you got them, make sure the shocks have the right amount of oil and nitrogen in them. that makes a difference as well.

if you need either one of their numbers text me.
