Instructions and information on your rebuilt shocks

 

Shock Care

FOX shock bodies and reservoirs are plated with zinc and clear coat. Before installing, and then several times a year, we suggest that you wax your shock bodies with a non-abrasive automotive wax. This will keep your shocks looking new for years to come. shafts Each time your shock is fully compressed, the shaft is cleaned by the wiper seal. Since the shock is rarely fully compressed on most vehicles, the lower portion of the shaft will build up deposits and is more prone to corrosion. To avoid future problems, clean the shock shafts when needed. Nitrogen pressure FOX shocks should be charged with Nitrogen only. Nitrogen will not hold moisture, and expands less as temperatures increase. Do not fill your shocks with compressed air because this will introduce moisture to the shock causing internal corrosion. FOX shocks should be left at the factory setting of nitrogen. The nitrogen charge in the shock is to pressurize the internal floating piston (IFP) and avoid cavitation. Tuning should be performed through spring rates or shock valving changes and not with changes in nitrogen pressure. We recommend checking the nitrogen pressure regularly. We also advise cleaning the bodies and shafts several times a year.

WARNINGS

FOX offroad shocks should always be installed as a pair for maximum performance. Proper installation and service procedures are essential for the safe and reliable installation of chassis parts, requiring the experience and tools specially designed for this purpose. Installation and maintenance procedures for this product must be performed by a qualified service technician, to avoid potentially unsafe vehicle handling characteristics which may result in serious INJURY or DEATH. Modifying your vehicle’s suspension will change the handling characteristics of your vehicle. Under certain conditions, your modified vehicle may be more susceptible to loss of control or rollover, which can result in serious INJURY or DEATH. Thoroughly familiarize yourself with the modified vehicle handling characteristics before any rigorous vehicle operation. Wear body protective gear including head protection when appropriate. Installation of vehicle roll bars or cage is highly recommended. FOX direct-replacement, smooth body shocks are gas-charged and are highly pressurized. Placing shocks in a vise or clamp, applying heat, or attempting to open or service the shock without the proper tools and training can result in serious INJURY or DEATH. Do not attempt to modify, disassemble, puncture or incinerate a FOX Direct Replacement Smooth Body shock absorber. Any attempt to misuse, misapply, modify, or tamper with any FOX product voids any warranty and may result in serious INJURY or DEATH.
