Initial thoughts are that the reversing light is pretty useless but the brake lights will give the person behind a tan!

My rear end has been attached to my sofa for the past couple of weeks waiting for an arrival. Rear shocks finally came.



If you read this Riccy, I should have asked you a question. Since you have Fox shocks, do you want the decals that came with mine? I don't plan to put them on my Jimny.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

They look cool. Be keen to know how you get on with them in the back. Ive not finished sorting mine out yet and still need to order longer springs to match them. Have managed to sort out the nitrogen & regulator as well as oil. From emailing Fox ive found out the IFP needs to be bottomed out in the reservoir during the build up (the depth is important to get right). Going to start off with nitrogen at 200psi and see how they feel, good hopefully as the nitrogen, regulator and oil have so far cost more than the shocks themselves!

I would also be interested in your kind offer of the stickers/decals. I want them for the shock body/reservoir rather than the car (just advertising to casual observing thieves to my mind). Obviously some beer tokens will be involved ;-)

Just pm me your address Riccy. I only have 2 since they came with the front and not the rear. I will put both of them in the mail. Since you are rebuilding yours you may want to consider a modification for the front. To keep this related to the thread, I received 2 of these the day before the shock:



I will be having the front modified so that these elbows direct the hose downward rather than straight out like this:



Luckily having the shocks modified here in the Philippines (by the Fox authorized shop) only costs about $11 USD for both. My plan is to mount the reservoirs like this so that I don't have to modify the upper shock mount (don't laugh at the sketch):

Jimnybits HD front recovery points. These seem to be in demand - got the email that they were back in stock, clicked 'buy' and they were showing as out of stock again!

Built to last like all the other JB stuff. Bolts to both legs of the chassis and has a spreader plate and central securing plate too. Comes in at 9kg with all the fittings.
