    Fox shock settings for the dunes..........

    How are you guys adjusting your Fox shocks for the dunes? I am thinking about 2 clicks up from soft in the front and 4 in the back to start with. Anybody dialed them in with something you like? Adjusted the ride height?

    On the back I am full stiff so I can carry more speed without bottoming out at the bottom of dunes. On the front I am about middle so about 12 clicks

    I have had a few super aggressive riders say they felt about 12 on the front, and 12-15 on the rear. I might start several clicks less to start, but it seems 2/4 might be too soft.

    Just make sure your women gets off early on Wednesday. Then come out and we will figure it out.

    If I'm not full stiff on the back I bottom out hard. Not to mention when jumping 8 feet in the air I need them that stiff otherwise I bottom out doing that too

    Dent,

    I did mine at Olds. Took about 6 - 8 runs, but finally got it just about perfect through the whoops. No hopping, or bucking. IMO, if you're good through the whoops at Olds, you'll be good just about everywhere at Glamis. You're always going to hit that one good G Out that will torque your spine, but that's about it.

    also make sure the stop rings for the dual rate springs are not all the way at the bottom of the threads on the shock.. Mine came like that from the dealer on the rear. The way they were i wasn't even using the smaller spring. I set them 5.5 inches down from the top of the spring, that allows for no binding and a smooth ride.

    With the ring placed that high, are you even using the stiffer spring at all? Based on the amount of shock shaft visible, it looks like the shock will bottom out betore you ever even get to the stiffer spring. I would lower it some, but that is just me.

    Thanks Hollywood. I plan on doing some testing, i was just trying to get a consensus on a good place to start. Seems like it really comes down to preference and how much air you wanna get! I'm not gonna be near Olds, but the whoops at the bottom of Patton, or any of the others should be about the same............

    Yeah, there you go, Patton's the same. Fronts should be close to stock, maybe a click softer. The backs I would first take a run, see if she bucks/hops, go softer two clicks, run it again. You will start to reel it in to where you need it. When you finally make that run where the car just drives right through it and feel basically nothing, that's sweet!

    If you even ride a little hard or bowel at speed you will bottom the back non stop even on the stiffest setting. I run full stiff in the rear and 5 clicks from full stiff on the front and it pounds the whoops if your not scared to put your foot in it. If I keep the cat it is getting 2.5" rear shocks no matter what. It needs all the help it can get. It could also use a little slower rebound in the rear.

    if it's bottoming easy isn't that really telling you the main springs are to light ? or maybe your cross over needs to be altered ?? cranking up the damping is just kinda masking it ?? with the compression dialed all the way up what is the ride quality like at slower speeds ??? just trying to understand what you guys are seeing so to speak with the fox's

    does anyone have the spring rate data ? I have a spreadsheet for calculating the effective combined rates and with additional details we can then plot the spring progression vs wheel travel, that will really tells you what is going on...... I can see potential issues with the rebound being to fast with heavier springs though.......
