Hey guys I’m in need of some advice. I’ve got a 2016 ram 1500 Big Horn that I just bought a 6 inch bds lift kit with 5 inch rear springs and UCA to go with it. I’ve been trying to find coil overs to get rid of the 4 inch spacers. Bds says they don’t make fox 2.5s for my truck, but I’m trying to figure out if I can use the 2.5s for the 5th gen I know they are a little longer but I will need to adjust them anyways to get rid of the rake or most of it anyways. Any help or advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys

According to fox’s website, they make 4-6” 2.5” coilovers for your truck…

The expanded view of these coil overs shows the wrong mounting hardware the 4th gen lower strut mount is forked. The blown up parts view show an eyelet mount that’s why I wanted to double check and see it the 5th gen would work

Yeaaaa. Its just a generic pic probably. If fox says it fits your year, i would have to think it fits.

The fox 2.5 coilovers should work. We have had customers run them with 6" Zone kits without an issues. If you would like a quote on them send me a message
