    Does anybody want to see tools i use for shock work?

    I ordered a couple things to investigate the FOA’s That I said I would evaluate. My girlfriend thought I should’ve done and unboxing and show you what I got and what it is. It’s too late for that but I’m wondering if you guys want to see what I consider minimal tools for a garage guy to work on shocks at home. Or do you guys already all know?

    Let me know if you want to see something like that before I tear and do the shocks. I still have a few more things coming and hopefully my old loaner or 2.5 foxes is to compare.

          As in rebuilding/re-valving shocks?

              This. I know some of what goes on and what is inside of a shock, but I'd love to know more.

                    I’m planning on breaking into these but I do have some specialized tools. I’m waiting on a couple more of my favorites to show up, but when they do I will put together either a video or a bunch of pictures and some text.

                        I would like to see everything if it's not to much trouble.

                        I have a (sort of) decent understanding of how to tune shocks but never attempted it because I figured I needed a bunch of special tools just to get them apart without wrecking them.

                        This should be good.

                          I actually have no idea of what kind of magic goes on inside a shock or how to unlock it... so of course I'd like to see pics of your girlfriend.

                          But really I would enjoy a very detailed thread of what you are doing, looking at, and why it's good or bad.

                            Do it. The more tech on here the better.

                              In. Would like to see the tools used, and what is involved.
