Fox Coilovers Installed on a 2010 Toyota Tundra - Fox Racing Suspension

One of our latest project trucks finally made its way home the other day-a 2010 Toyota Tundra to replace the '08 model we had to give back to Toyota recently. Our last Tundra was big and definitely looked good but lacked a little in the performance-and-handling department. Our friends at Fox are always ahead of the game when it comes to building race-winning off-road trucks so we decided to check out what they had for our Tundra.

OC Motorsports in Costa Mesa, California, is more than familiar with installing Fox coilovers onto IFS trucks, so we headed down there to watch the magic happen on our new Tundra test vehicle.

Features of the 2.5 coilovers
•Smooth-bore seamless shock body
•Tunable velocity-sensitive valving
•Teflon-lined heat-treated alloy steel spherical bearings
•7/8-inch stainless steel shafts
•Billet aluminum top mounting adapter, body cap, eyelet, bearing cap and reservoir end caps
•Eibach springs
•Grade 8 hardware
•Nitrogen gas pressurized to 200PSI
•Consumer serviceable/tunable
•Preload standard setting for 2.5 inches of lift

1. We chose to add the 2.0 piggyback shocks to complement our new beefy 2.5 front coilovers. Fox sent us everything we needed, including all the hardware and reservoir mounts. If you choose to install this suspension yourself, please consult the manufacturer instructions. We will give you a basic look into our install and some things to watch out for, not a complete how-to.

Features of the 2.0 piggyback shocks
•Smooth-bore seamless body
•Tunable velocity-sensitive valving
•Teflon-lined heat-treated alloy steel spherical bearings
•5/8-inch alloy steel, heat-treated, hard chrome plated shafts
•Billet aluminum body cap, eyelet, bearing cap, internal floating piston and reservoir end caps
•Powder metal piston
•Nitrogen gas pressurized to 200 psi
•Consumer serviceable/tunable

2. After getting the truck on the lift, we removed the skidplate and sway bar from the truck. Getting them both out of the way will save you time later.
