    Need to replace front & rear shocks.
    Has anyone used FOX brand shocks.
    They are pricey but are they worth it ?

    How much is a set of 6?

    My RK are still in good shape, I hear the FOX are comparable - glad there is a similar alternative.

    Ok . $1800 tractor.

    I wonder how many here have tried them - longevity, rebuildable? Performance?

    Honestly the RK are the best investment I ever made for ride and comfort. Many had issues with leaks and their customer service was terrible, mine are still on and functional.

    If they get to leaking, I’ll try to rebuild myself, but interested in the FOX. Reputable brand as far as I know.

    I respect that opinion, but I seriously thought they’d repaved I 44 after I put those RK shocks on.

    No idea how they are for trucks but in the off road world ATV's, rock crawlers, bikes they're pretty much top of the line

    I went with the Gabriel’s this time but I am interested in the Fox and your brand for next time. If they are rebuildable then it is worth the investment if keeping truck for the long haul. Especially if purchased on one of the sales 4states/Raney’s.whoever has on occasions. Buy once cry a little….

    edit, fox are rebuildable… Rik says factory rebuildable. Are they out of biz?
     
    blairandgretchen and Vampire Thank this.
