Talking Re: suspension setup for dunes

Man that is a loaded question.
This is what I have done and I in no way imply that what I say is the best way.
I do not like to just jack up the pressure because you get the bucking when you do that and a horrible ride.
I have added 15cc of oil to each shock which changes when the shock gets on the oil. I tried heavier oil but the shocks got hard then and bucked in high speed woops. speed racer used to pump his pressures up high and still would bottom out. The best option is to put some King Coilovers on it for jumping.
stock oil volume is 275cc front and 300cc rear. Fox says you can add an additional 30cc to each shock max for tuning. I have not changed any shims. This can do the most but testing and tuning is not what I want to do at the dunes.
Just some info maybe it helps.

Next

So you have added 15cc of oil to each shock and what pressures do you run ,
Did it make a difference in handling.
I know where your coming from about test and tuning in the dunes ,you just want to cut up the dunes not spend half your time on the spanners

Re: suspension setup for dunes

Dune shock setup:
Front, 60 compression, 45 rebound 270 cc fluid
Rear, 75 compression, 50 rebound 305 cc fluid

Set the nitrogen pressure so that when you are in the car the shocks are in the middle of the travel.... Half of the shock shaft showing. This gives you equal compression and rebound. If you are bottoming, do not add pressure, add oil.....
When you drain the oil, measure what is in there. I am sure it will be low. Check the Fox web site for instructions, also check Pirate 4X4 website and find the article on Fox air shocks. This is very informative....

If you want to just change the oil and refill to the stated levels and adjust your pressure as described, that would be a good start and you will definitely see a difference.

Re: suspension setup for dunes

As per the Fox shox spec sheet the 10" shock has 260cc oil, the 12" shock has 300cc. The compression and rebound setup is etched on the blue ring on the shock. Should look like 35/45 on front and 75/85 on rear. The oil seeps and leeks over time, so as I said it would be a miracle if your oil level is not low. If it has never been changed it will look black with contaminants, should be light blue. You should change oil once a year. If you notice excessive leaking there is a seal kit you can replace that fixes that.

Re: suspension setup for dunes

My bad. I guess I am running 275cc in front which is 15cc over stock. And 315cc in the rear. It has been so long since I have messed with them.

I would have to look at my log book but I believe I run 235lbs in front and 275lbs in the rear for all around riding. Dunes, trails and woops.
