We are needing our Fox shocks serviced for our 10 car, I have called and sent emails, and tried to fill there service form page out, all the codes passwords log-in info%$#@*&() and the last time I had them on the phone they put me on hold and then the call was so long it said call ended, so am not getting anywhere. And this post is not to Dog on Fox, I just want to send my shocks in so we can get our car ready to race. Any advice, someone else that does great service work on Fox shocks?
Thanks, Steve.

I need a shock man with plans. How much do they generally run for a test session in Barstow? If we had 5 prerunners?

downsouth motorsports in San Diego as well. SDG is top tier so they may be out of your price range, but they are the best in the biz now. All their techs are former master Fox Techs

Learn how to service them yourself, its not brain surgery. You should be able to get the kits and oil at Kartek. The more you know how to work on your own car the better off you will be when you have problems in the race. Good luck

if you are happy with the set up servicing is just parts changing but you might not be able to see any problems with the shim stack that an experienced shock guy could,other than that do it yourself.

Literally just got home from a testing session with Wayne from Alltech. I can not imagine how one could get their shocks working well with out a day of testing in person with a shock specialist. Every car is different. Every driver is different. Well worth the time! Do it! 10 hour drive to Barstow for us. Well worth it!

Sure, seal kits are cheap, but if you know what labor goes into actually fully rebuilding a shock then the price makes sense. Do you have a body cap wrench to change the cap seal? A sonic-cleaner? Maybe not necessary but the legit shops take care of you.

Thanks everyone for the information, I will give this some thought and make a few phone calls around to some of the shops listed above. It would be nice if I could find someone in driving distance to us, we are in Southern Oregon, is there anyone really good around Reno NV? its only 5hrs one way, and that way we might still be able to go out for testing after the service? We haven't ran the car since the 50th, but are hoping to get things back up and going soon. Also servicing them our self is on my list at some point, just not this time. Are the any good rebuild videos, needed tool list, parts brake down diagrams available? Also I think the shock bodies really need a good coating of something, as they really got oxidized and beat up at the 50th 1000.
