Meredith: If you're in search of a shock that's going to give you better performance for the streets and the trails, these Fox Performance Series 2.0 front and rear shocks are a great option to check out for your 2007 to 2018 JK Wrangler with one-and-a-half to three-and-a-half inches of lift. Now, these will be a great addition if you've added a lift or a leveling kit to your Wrangler and you're looking for a more responsive ride with a higher-quality shock than your factory one or an entry-level shock that you may already have.Now, in my opinion, these will give a little bit of a stiffer ride while still remaining very comfortable. You're not gonna get all of that body roll like you would with your factory shocks when turning, especially while you're driving on the street, but it's still going to be smooth for on and off-road bumpy driving.Not to mention, if you take your Jeep off-road often and you're looking for a shock that's going to be durable and able to hold up when it comes to the strength and internal performance, this is going to be a great pick. As to the build, these will have a two-inch 6061-T6 aluminum body with a clear iodized finish on top that's going to protect that aluminum underneath from any corrosion. These will also have a polished five-eighths inch hard chrome steel shaft that's resistant to any bending or knicks in the shaft itself, keeping the performance high. Now on the inside, this will also have an internal IFP reservoir design with a high-flow piston to optimize the dampening. Now each shock will also have quiet nitrol rubber bushings that will offer some flexibility and also last, especially in comparison to the factory ones.Getting into the price tag on these as a full kit. This will come in at roughly $575. Now in my opinion, these are going to be right in the middle when it comes to a set of shocks. It's not going to have every single bell and whistle like some more expensive options would, but is going to be better performing than an entry-level shock or your factory ones. Now, for example, some less expensive options may have a steel shock body or a smaller shaft that may not be as durable as this choice. Now on the other end of the spectrum, some more expensive choices may have reservoirs that are attached to the body of the shock for extra valving, or they may be adjustable for different types of scenarios.Now I think if you're looking for a high-quality and well-performing shock that's not going to break the bank, then this is going to be a great kit to choose. When it comes to the install, I'm gonna give this a two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, taking you about three hours to get the job done with the correct hand tools. Now, one of our installers here is going to walk you through what that process looks like step by step. That's gonna wrap it up for my review. Let's go ahead and get into the install.Installer: Tools used for this install, a three-eighths electric impact gun, a 16, 18 and 19-millimeter sockets, a short extension, a long extension, a half to three-eighths adapter, 19,18-millimeter wrenches, and a pole jack stand. Hey guys. I'm gonna show you how to install our front and rear shocks here on our Wrangler. So let's get started. First thing we're gonna do, now we have our vehicle up in the air. If you have your vehicle on the ground, you're gonna wanna jack it up, make sure you have jack stand's supported the right way, make sure so it doesn't fall. What we're gonna do is remove this nut up here. It's holding the upper shock in. It's a 19 millimeter and then we have an 18 millimeter down here, we'll remove that and we'll take our shock out. So now I'm gonna take my 19 millimeter, we're gonna get up in here and because of it being so tight up here with the plastic, I'm gonna just wrench this nut off.Now, I'm gonna get it to the point where it's finger loose and it does take a little bit to wrench it off with a wrench, but it is very close up there, so it is hard to get anything else up in there to get it off. So now we got the top nut off and we do have a rubber up here that we will take off once we get the bottom bolt out and then we can start removing our shock. So now I'm gonna take an 18-millimeter wrench and an 18-millimeter socket on my three-eighths gun and we're gonna break this loose down here and take this bolt out. I'm gonna remove the nut there, pull this bolt out and then let's give a couple of taps like that to pull it out of the rubber grommet up there. We get up top here, remove our washer and our grommet and we'll pull the shock down and get the shock removed. And we're just gonna reach up in here, grab our washer and our rubber grommet and that'll be our shock removal.Now, we're gonna install our front shock and what I'm gonna do is get this up in place here. I'm gonna take my rubber and my washer here and get that up in top. And once I get that rubber and that washer up there, I'm gonna slide the rest of the shock up through, you can see and came through. And then we're going to put our 19-millimeter nut on top and get this started. I'm gonna run it down as far as I can. I'm gonna take my 19-millimeter wrench and tighten this up. I'm just gonna turn the bottom here a little bit just to get it in place and keep tightening so we smash the rubbers up top. And once you get those smashed, now we'll install and stick in the bottom part of our shock. So now we're gonna install our lower shock bolt. Just gonna get in here, get it into place, might have to just lift up on a suspension just like that, just a little bit to get it to go, stick the nut on. Once you get the nut started, I'm gonna take my three-eighths gun again with an 18-millimeter and an 18-millimeter wrench and hold it, run it in. And you're gonna wanna repeat this whole install and uninstalled procedure on the opposite side.So now we're gonna take off our rear shock. We have two 16 millimeters up here and then we have another bolt down in the bottom here. We're gonna remove that one. First. I'm gonna get up here with my 16 millimeter, a couple of extensions on my three eights gun and pull these two out up top. So now I'm gonna take my 16 millimeter on my three-eighths gun. Get up in here and remove these two bolts, one and then one on the other side. All right, now that we have those two out, remove our bottom one.Okay, now I'm gonna take my 18-millimeter wrench and my 18-millimeter socket on my three-eighths gun. Take this bottom bolt out, so now we got our bolt out, I'm just going to wiggle our shock out of the bottom bracket here like that, and remove our shock.So now we're gonna install our shock. First thing we're going to do, so I'm gonna get the shock up in place here and just start our upper bolts in place. I got one started there. We're probably not gonna be able to see this until we start tightening them, but I'm gonna get the other one in place here and started. And now we got both of them started, we'll take our lower shock and get that in place here, put our bolt back in and our nut. And now we'll tighten everything up.And I'm gonna take my 18 millimeter wrench and my 18 millimeter socket on my three-eighths gun and we're gonna tighten this up. So now I'm gonna take my 16 millimeter with some extensions on my three-eighths gun, and I'm gonna get up in here and tighten these two up. Same on the other side and now you're gonna wanna repeat this whole uninstall and install procedure on the opposite side.That wraps up this review, and install of our Fox Performance Series 2.0 front and rear IFP shocks for one-and-a-half to three-and-a-half-inch lift for '07 to '18 Jeep Wrangler JKs.
