Fox IFP 2.0 (F/R) & Coach Builder (+1) and bushings

These are the latest modifications made. My goal to improve the suspension in functionality and durability over stock.

Original:
2013 Toyota Tundra LTD (4WD) non-TRD package.
20" wheels
Tires: 275 55 R20 tires (30 lb psi front / 33 lb psi rear)

New:
Fox IFP 2.0 (F/R)
Coach Builder (+1) Shackles
Bushings Polyurethane (full kit)
TRD Rear Sway Bar

Initial impressions are good. I will be posting pictures and other comments as I spend more time with the set up. My opinions at this point might be biased, qualitative impressions. As my head clears of the "new stuff" excitement, I will provide more insight.

Please respond with any specific questions you may have, and I will attempt to answer.

Ok - butt in seat impression: Stock vs. Fox on road.

I noticed three things with the stock set up that initiated this change. The first was a see-saw effect. The second issue was noticed on bridges at speed while turning. The third was large bumps. The see-saw effect occurred usually while traveling in a straight line. It was felt as a back and forth motion in the neck area. It was as if the rear of the truck was fighting the front. The second was more disturbing. When going over a bridge on a turn I frequently travel, I noticed (or perceived) the front on the truck moving laterally when I hit the bridge joint. Large bumps off road were jarring.

The FOX set up has 75 miles on it, so take from that what you may. However, the lateral movement on the bridge turn is gone. The see-saw effect is perceived much lower in my back. This might indicate a smaller amplitude "vibration" or the suspension working more effectively -- like riding a horse. a new rider keeps his back stiff and gets whiplash. An experienced rider allows the horse to move under him flexing at the hips. Large bumps are still known to be there but the response is different. It is like a boat slowing down coming off plane. This is the point where the boat operator has to "goose" the engine to avoid swamping the engine in the swell. Large bumps seem to have a "swell" vs. a "throw".

I hope that helps. 'kind of a long post, but I hoped to use examples from other things that people might relate. Qualitative "perception" is largely personal. Everyone has a different butt.

Is the change in the rear slightly different vs oem or a big improvement in your opinion?

Do you notice a bouncy feeling on the street like the rebound on the new shocks is shooting the truck up on minor road chatter?

I think it's a big improvement. As I understand it, the metals sleeve/rubber bushing seizes solid with age and things gets worse with time.

On the new set up, I hear the tire slap some of the rough spots and nothing is felt. This is new.

I have the same shocks with a plus 2" (I tow). over stock? Night and day. Against a 2.5? I challenge anyone to an "All Around Ride" contest.

The 2.0's may fade sooner against a 2.5 out in the desert, but almost no one is beating their truck all day every day in the desert.

I think the push from manufacturers and dealers may have to do with larger $$ margins. Just sayin...

And I live in San Diego... Bring it on!
