Selecting The Best Fox Shock Series For Your Build

If you drive an off-road vehicle, there are plenty of things that you need to make sure you are looking into when you want to build it right. Whatever kind of build you have, or have planned in the pipeline, it’s vital that you are picking out all the right parts. Some parts are always going to be more important than others, of course, and a perfect example of a part that’s hugely important is the shocks.

In this guide, we are going to take you through how you can select the best shocks for your build, looking specifically at various Fox shock series that you might want to try out. By the end of it, you should have a much better idea of what you need to think about and how you can better select the best Fox shock series for your own vehicle.

What Is A Shock For?

First of all, in case you don’t know already, it might be helpful to look into just what a shock is and what it is used for. Essentially, it is short for shock absorber, and it is the part of the vehicle that does exactly that – absorbs shock. That means that the vehicle is going to be kept from bouncing, which is obviously very useful when you have an off-road car that you are actually using as an off-road vehicle!

The Advantages Of Good Shocks

So what is the point of making sure that you have the best possible shocks you can find? There are a few main reasons you might want to look into this, but one of the main ones is handling. When you have less bouncing around going on, it gives you a much greater ability to be able to handle the vehicle. That makes it easier to do what you want, increasing enjoyability but also ensuring that you can remain as safe as possible too, which is another really important factor in all of this.

In short, if you have good shocks, you will have a much better time with your off-roading experience. So it is absolutely worthwhile investing in good quality shocks.

What Are Fox Shocks?

Now that we have looked into what shocks are and why you might need them, we might want to uncover what Fox shocks are, and how they differ. You have probably heard a lot about Fox shocks if you have been in the community a while, and especially if this is not your first rodeo. They are well-known as a particularly good option and a lot of people swear by them, but what actually are they and how do they differ from normal, standard shocks?

Essentially the difference is in the intended use and application of them and the vehicle they are in. Fox shocks are usually the go-to choice for anyone hoping to drive off-road. You might come across off-road vehicles that have standard shocks, and those are probably not actually being driven off-road. If you want to go off-road and you want to do it right, you are going to want Fox shocks.

Choosing The Best Fox Shock Series

So how can you ensure that you are actually choosing the best Fox shock series for your build? With so many Fox shocks to choose between, it can be hard knowing whether or not you are making the right decision here. The main thing to remember is that you need to choose the series that is suitable for the level of off-road intensity that you will be carrying out with your build.

Performance Series

Those hoping to get the kind of on-road experience off-road without too much trouble might want to look at the performance series Fox shocks. These are built to last but not incredibly high-intensity, so they are a good option for relatively gentle off-roading. Nonetheless, they’re better than any on-road options you might find.

Performance Elite Series

The performance elite series, on the other hand, is a great option if you want an oversized performance shock, in order to massively increase strength and give you a lot more control. This is essentially your best option if you are doing slightly more intense off-roading than you might with the standard performance series.

Factory Race Series

Finally we have the factory race series, ideal for absolutely any terrain that you might wish to traverse. The most hardcore option around.
As you can see, there is a lot to think about here. Whatever you go for, be sure to seek the help of professional servicers like Dixie 4 Wheel Drive.
