2016 F150 SCrew FX4
Cornering around turns, with un-even pavement, is downright dangerous on these new F150's. I can't believe how bad the back end wants to dance around. After reading about this dilemma, on F150forums.com , I decided to try these Fox 2 rear shocks out. I ordered here, and got them for $207 delivered. Not even Amazon tops that price. Once I received them, I put them on myself. I've never put shocks on before, so it was definitely a learning experience for me. The stock shocks are very easy to compress. These are NOT! I had to jack my trucks frame up, and use a crow bar, to pry them up and in. I do not have a good jack, so I had to use my trucks jack. It took me 2 hours, with absolutely no experience, or proper tools. They are a bear to compress by hand, and alone. An extra set of hands would've been nice, but the crow bar from my trucks jack worked fine. Had I known any of this before hand, I probably could've done it in a half hour to 45 min. After the install, I went for a ride, looking for the worst pavement. No matter how bad the road, the truck never side stepped again. These shocks gave my truck a very compliant ride. They really softened and smoothed everything. The only trouble I have now is, I absolutely see how bad the stock front suspension is now. The difference will astound you.
