Default Adjusting suspension
Hi all

I just purchased a brand new 2018 white Raptor screw with 802A package

I was wondering if you can adjust the front and rear shocks.

Thanks

You can’t adjust the rear shocks, but you can adjust the front ones. For that you’ll need to purchase any of these.

Are you talking about ride height or damping rate?

From the factory the shocks are not adjustable. There are aftermarket collars available to raise the ride height up front. Dampening is not adjustable. You have two options for dampening. Having the internal valving inside the shocks changed or go aftermarket. The factory shocks are low end entry level offroad shocks. To get external adjustability expect to pay in the $5k-$6k range at a minimum.

They might be low end in the world of high-speed off-road racing, but as a factory offering they are unparalleled. Given the relatively limited range of suspension travel anyway (relative to true trophy trucks) these shocks are quite good.

Rebound and damping rates being adjustable is really not a big deal. My snowmobile has Fox shocks with these adjustments and in reality you end up setting the adjustments somewhere in the middle...which is what Ford and Fox did with these shocks.

Nice truck, by the way!

FYI dampening is to make something damp or wet. The word you want is damping.
