I would have replied to Keithy's post in another thread yesterday but was busy doing this:

Initial test fit with the elbow installed so that the hose would be directed downward.


Reservoir mounted


Rear started. Went to a nearby mall for lunch so didn't take final pictures of those. Will add them when I finally update my build thread.

I started out with nothing & still have most of it left

When the Fox rep installed the elbows, he suggested that, rather than going directly to the standard 200 psi on reassembly, that I start at 150 psi and then decide what I wanted. After driving for a while, I will also decide if I want to do any revalving.

Im interested in the model of shock you are using Bob. Mine are 2.0x8 smooth body/remote reservoir and stickered "Factory race series", the same as your rear ones. These look a different length to suit less lift perhaps? I love them on the front, need to order some rears once I measure up lengths needed. Im running 200psi in them, which is firm but ok with some weight in the car. Will mess about and try lower to see what its like.

Nah, Keithy. Just my Gen3. Haven't gone to the dark side…..yet. I think my daughter may end up deciding she wants one of the new moel.

Riccy:
Mine are 980-02-049 for the front and 980-06-030 for the rear. Those are as close as I could find to match the shock mounting dimensions taken by another Jimny owner (12.28 inches on bumpstops in front and 13.78 inches on bumpstops for the rear). The 980-02-049 are 11.84 inches compressed and 18.34 extended. The 980-06-030 are 12.3 inches compressed and 18.8 extended. If you haven’t already looked, your model number may be imprinted on the shock body end cap. That is where mine are marked.

I did order custom valving. The front standard is 45/30. I think a little light on the rebound so I had it made with 45/80. The rear are 30/90 standard but I had those changed to 80 rebound also.
