Review & Install Video
Hey, I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com and this is my quick review and breakdown of the FOX 2.0 Performance Series IFP Shocks, for a zero through one-inch lift, fitting your rear '09 through '16 F-150. So in this is video, I'm gonna break down the construction and materials of these shocks, talk about who these are gonna appeal to, what you should expect to be spending, and then lastly we're gonna hit the installation. But right off the bat I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you should have this set on your truck in about one to two hours tops.
So if you're on the fence about picking up a leveling kit or a lift kit and you're looking for a marginal bump and clearance, but more importantly you're looking for some of the best ride quality and handling out there, I would definitely suggest taking a look at these shocks for your build. Now right out of the gate, before we get out of the meat and potatoes here, I do want to mention that these are gonna be specifically for trucks that are running only up to a one-inch lift, so let's take a look into the construction.
It's evident that these are definitely tough parts, just like their corresponding FOX 2.0 coil-over shocks, and we're gonna see that predominantly the body itself is gonna be comprised of a 6061-T6 construction for extreme durability as well as longevity. These shocks are gonna feature a five-eighth-inch hard chrome heat-treated alloy steel shaft that's also gonna utilize nitrile bushings for increased articulation. Now, these are not only gonna help your truck perform that much better off-road, but they're definitely gonna help the handling and performance on-road as well.
So taking a look inside these shocks, the FOX series is gonna feature an internal floating piston technology, which essentially means that they're gonna be able to withstand any type of terrain and/or bumps on the road, or even just taking a nasty pothole, or hitting some railroad tracks. Furthermore, they're gonna be filled with the a JM92 suspension fluid just to ensure that your ride is gonna be topnotch.
So getting into the pricing here, you should expect to be spending right around $130 per piece here. But, again, I say that these are definitely worth their weight in gold not only from a quality perspective but from a performance perspective. Now when shopping around for shocks, you're gonna see that some alternatives can easily start at around, say, $45, which is gonna be something that you can pick up going down at your local parts store right off the shelf, and they can easily tip the scales of close to $1300, like if you're looking for something with an external reservoir setup. Now, for the money here, again, guys, for FOX quality as well as performance, I definitely think you're getting a huge bank for the buff of this kit.
So taking a look at the installation side of the video, just like I had said in the beginning, you're gonna be looking at a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you should have these on your truck in about one to two hours tops. So the ease of installation here is definitely gonna be a huge selling point for me as these are honestly going to install by themselves. But while it's gonna be easier said than done, you're gonna need to take your wheels and tires off, and then these stock shocks are then gonna be essentially held in by two bolts. Once they're removed, you're gonna replace them with your FOX shock and then you're good to go.
All right, so to just wrap things up here, I definitely like this option from FOX, if you're looking for the maximum amount of performance, especially when you're gonna be pairing these with their corresponding coil-over shocks, as well as their construction, their durability, the ease of installation, and the aggressive price for what you're gonna be getting. All right, so that's my detailed review and breakdown of the FOX 2.0 Performance Series IFP Shock, for the zero through two-inch lift, fitting your rear 2009 through 2016 F-150, available right here at americanmuscle.com.
