The new FOX 2.0 IFP Snap Ring Coil-over Shock works nearly identical to other height adjustable shocks on the market with an adjustable coil spring collar that can sit at factory height, or up to 2” of lift. The specific vehicle application will determine what the max ride height is, but Fox is known for limiting their 2.0 shocks at about 2” of lift. Bilstein on the other hand goes up to 2.5” of lift with some applications using the 5100 series shock.
Some notable features of the Fox 2.0 Snap Ring shock is the single-piece aluminum body and the black anodized aluminum components, which contribute to both better heat dissipation and weight savings. Beyond the construction of the shock, you can expect similar ride characteristics of the 2.0 Performance IFP shocks in the rest of Fox’s line, specifically they are tuned for vehicles that see a good amount of off-road driving.
As far as comparing these to other products in the market, Fox states:
“This includes a new custom-molded spring seat, allowing you to reuse your stock spring and mounting hardware, while providing excellent on- and off-road performance at an affordable price point.”
Other options, such as Bilstein 5100, Rancho RS7000MT, Pro Comp Pro Runners, also provide coil spring seats that use factory coil springs. And touting ‘affordable price point’ is misleading considering that every other ride height adjustable shock on the market can be had at almost half the price of this new offering.
One place where the new Fox 2.0 Snap Ring shock should excel at would be pairing with lifted coil springs, typically seen from Old Man Emu, Eibach, and other custom spring manufacturers that aim to lift mid-size trucks.
