Anyone use fox racing?

I had my steering stabilizer just pop, and a buddy of mine who races bikes, and is a mechanic on trucks recommended fox. He said they are pricey but like butter.

My dampners are on their way out as well, and should be replaced in the next month or so. I don't do a whole lot of towing and when I do, its about 8-9000 total (hmm why do I have a 02 4x4 dually?? oh yeah, cuz I wanted one ). Just a vintage racer on an aluminum trailer. Lots of daily driving though.

I like quality stuff and the idea of a nice ride is worth the extra bucks to me, but I just wanted to see if anyone has any experience with them.

I've had Fox resi's on my Z71 and and on my powerstroke, I love them. Best thing about them is that they're completely rebuildable. If you're low on cash, Bilstiens are great. Kings are great but they're very expensive. If I had to run anything besides Kings it would be Fox's.

2006 F-250 PSD King Ranch ccsb FX4 - 14" Lift w/ TGC 4-Link, Fox 2.0 Resi's, ARP's, EGR deleted, Cat ELC, Mishimoto Radiator/Intercooler, 4" TB exhaust/6" Tip, SCT w/ IDP & Gearhead Tunes, MO962's w/ 43" Goodyears

Rock Crawler/Trails Rig: 94 Jeep YJ - 12" lift, 1 tons, LS1, 40" boggers... F&R 4-link, coilovers and a 4BT soon
