Fox Shocks for 2006 SMB 4x4?

I've searched here a bit but don't see the answer to this question: Does anyone have the part numbers for Fox Shocks to fit the front of a 2006 E350 SMB 4x4 conversion? Or do they exist as a ready to bolt on part?

Thanks,

Brian

I thought they sold shocks with remote reservoirs as well, but I didn't see them on the parts site.

The Fox SMB 4x4 shocks can only be purchased through Sportsmobile.

Has anyone actually purchased the Fox shocks from SMB? Looking for feedback, as I'm getting ready to replace the shocks on my 07 Ford.

We've installed 2 sets and all positive reviews so far.

Re: Fox Shocks for 2006 SMB 4x4?

On my lighter SMB 4x4 they are wonderful on the washboard washes with tires around 40psi. I just did this last weekend and they are marvelous. Around town I don't like them, they are too harsh compared to the original Rancho's that came from SMB in 2004. I reduced my regular tire pressure into the 60's as some people suggested and it is still bone jarring on speed bumps going slow and road imperfections. On the highway they are fine, no problems as long as road does not have pronounced buckles. No problems with cornering, roll or lack of feedback etc.
