Good choice - Fox stuff is top of the line.
Looks like maybe the shaft hit the side of the hole in the frame while in full bind. I think that's what that mark is on the side.
It's been quite a while since I changed shocks on a GM RWD vehicle. I used to break the threads off on front shocks because it was easier than fighting a rusty nut while the shaft is turning. They aren't all that strong. I guess yours got a little extra stress somehow or it was just defective.
Yes, they are very hard, but brittle and intolerant of any flexion. I guess mine flexed.
Edit - I see you actually purchased the adjustable shocks, whereas I purchased the non-adjustable, so my question is likely moot.
Hi, have you installed these yet? I also ordered some to go with the Hotchkis suspension I'll be installing over winter (well, front springs are in and I'm waiting for the rears to come in). Wondering how you find the ride quality of these shocks on the street?
Did you check out the qa1? They have a shock for lowered cars
Thanks yes I did look into them as well but in the end decided to go with the Hotchkis since they are apparently set up to work with their suspension, or at least that's the marketing story I bought into.
Mine still haven't arrived! Supposed to be delivered 3 weeks ago. I really debated over the adjustable vs non. Hotchkis tech guy I spoke with said the non-adjustable are excellent and he has them on his 79.
I just figured I'd pop for adjustable since always like tinkering with things.
The best shocks I've purchased so far ..
