Ford Raptor Fox Shock Exchange Program

(Picture of a set of refinished shocks)

Why spend $2300+ to replace your old warn out OE Fox shocks, when we can rebuild your shocks at a fraction of the cost!?

Did you know Ford Raptor’s FOX 2.5 shocks have a defined life cycle?

Depending on use, your FOX 2.5 shocks need to be rebuilt between 30,000-50,000 miles (see chart).

The cost to rebuild a set of four Fox Raptor shocks is only $500 if they are already off the truck, or $750 if we need to remove the shocks from the truck and rebuild those shocks the same day. It costs $2300 or more to replace all four shocks for four new OE shocks if you buy the new OE shocks from the Ford or Motorcraft Dealer.

A question we get a lot is... Can’t I just send my old shocks down to Fox to get my shocks rebuilt? The answer is YES! Yes, you can send your old shocks to Fox and have them rebuilt, however, the cost for the rebuild is about $80 more and Fox will rebuild them to OE spec.  Another downside is it can take well over a month for you to get your new shocks back…. yes a MONTH! And that does not include the shipping back and forth! That means your truck is down, without shocks, for a month or more! This is exactly why we designed the Shock Exchange Program.

Here’s How the Shock Exchange Program Works: We at Forged Offroad will build up a set of OE Ford/Fox Raptor shocks or and ship the shocks to you.  Once the shocks arrive you have 7 business days to swap in the rebuilt shocks for your old shocks and send us back your old shocks.  We then rebuild your old shocks, and once complete we send these newly rebuilt shocks to the next guy needing a rebuild.  It’s that simple! AND the best part is your truck is only down for a few hours, not a month or more!

Performance Upgrades for your Ford Raptor Shocks:  In addition to offering the Shock Exchange Program, which greatly minimizes the time your truck is down, we can also rebuild your shocks to your specific spec. needs, improving the overall performance of your off road vehicle.  Why rebuild to OE spec shocks when we can improve the performance of your shocks??  From Mid Perching & Flutter Stacks, to full custom set-ups, we can customize your shocks to perform far better than when your truck and shocks were brand new!

NEW NEW NEW! The new Viton Seals are finally here!! We already use better butyl rubber seals than the shocks originally came with for our standard rebuild kits but now we have the best of the best seals made of Viton. Viton handles a wider range of temperatures and does not wear out as quickly as butyl. Every Fox shock that is 3.0 or larger comes with Viton seals from the factory and now you can have the same high performance Viton seals in your shocks!

NEW NEW NEW! Protect your lower control arms from the damage caused by the OE bolt!

As you can see from the picture, the threads from the OE bolt have eaten into the lower control arms. Forged Offroad has a custom replacement bolt that will prevent any further damage and outlast the truck. Click Here for more info.

*Standard shock rebuild.  Includes all new fluid, seals & nitrogen recharge.*

**If any parts are damaged and require replacement, additional charges will apply for replacement parts. A typical failure are the bleed screws on shocks that have not been rebuilt within standard intervals, leaving the bleed screws corroded into the wiper cap and can therefore no longer be removed.  The only solution is to replace the cap, the bleeder screws and the ball valves at a cost of $65 for each cap.
