    If you were choosing between the two for the rear, what would you go with?

    Are you using an AAL, progressive leaf, complete pack or block to lift the rear?

    I’m actually not lifting the rear. I just realized that the toytec boss is only able to used with a lift. So now I’m debating the 5160 or the fox 2.0 with remote res. I’m just swapping out the rear shocks and want to spend 500 or less. Any suggestions?

    That’s what I have up front. I’m impressed with them and definitely with the price however, I want to try something else in the rear. I would go with king but it’s like $1000 and that is a lot.

    Yeah they aren’t cheap. Sounds like for your needs if you aren’t lifting and don’t plan on it in the future. 5100’s in back would be fine. You could do the 5160’s or the fox but you probably don’t need them. Save the money.

    I doubt you’ll be disappointed with the Fox purchase.
