Fox 2.0 shocks and Extreme 2”” Lift

Finally installed my new Fox 2.0 shocks and 2” front lift (leveling kit) on my 2012 825i.

Straight forward install, no surprises.

I like that a lot! I have the same lift kit and very satisfied. Please update up in time on the Fox shocks. Thanks for sharing.

Any reason you went with the leveling kit instead of the spring spacers?

The spring spacers I have on hand don’t seem to be compatible with this shock setup.

I believe the shock relocation type leveling kit, is a safer option for lifting my Gator. With spring spacers you need to be careful with heavy loads on the machine or risk breaking components.

Spring spacers provide a lift option for many users, however with the weight of my Deluxe Cab and snowplow they wouldn’t be my first choice.
