FOX Shocks.. AGAIN :)

Ok guys, so I am finally sick of my truck riding like the back seat of the school bus... So after hearing alot of you guys say that FOX will revalve the shocks for free, I called about 2 minutes ago and was happily please when the woman told me that it is indeed true So now I have to take off all 6 of my shocks and send them to CA (from MN) to have them revalved for a MUCH softer ride I am hoping. My question is, what will my truck ride like without any of the shocks on?? Is it a bad idea to drive my truck like this?? Can I tow my 6,000 lb. trailer like this?? She said right now it will only take like 2 days once they receive the shocks to get them done... Does anybody think this will help the rough ride like I am hoping??? Let me know what you think people

I would not drive the truck I had bad shocks on the back of a truck once I swear the rear jumped over about 2' every bump it was quite uneasy feeling at e way speed. I definitly would not tow, the job of youre shocks is to slow the sespention and prevent spring breakage not just your ace.:w oot:

Ok so I just called fox back, and the dude told me now that it COULD take up to a week, when the first lady told me 2 days probably... And he told me that they will only ship them back ground shipping...So I might not have them back until sometime next week...That really sucks...Now I don't know what to do...

You wont hurt your truck by driving it without shocks, unless you hit something. The tires wont have as good of a contact with the road when you hit bumps, debris, etc. So bracking, acceleration, panic maneuvers will be affected. As far as the ride goes after this is done, if they are valved right, you wont ever look back. Fox makes great shocks. I have a set of 6 superlift superride shocks that I took off when I put on my Foxs' if your interested in them, pm me an offer...
