Fox Shock Coating

Recommended Posts

So Im looking to get my coil overs and bypasses redone and I want to get them all coated black while they are being rebuilt but not sure what the best coating is. I know a lot of people have done powdercoat and some people have even started using cerakote but im wondering what holds up the best and what works best on the threaded coilover bodies. What route has everyone been going??

I'll second these guys for Cerakote, used them for a few lowers and they do really fine work.

Have you called fox directly ? They quoted me a really good price to tear down and re coat some bypass shock bodies. You can choose the  color too.

Thats exactly how i want mine done, Who did the coating for you? 

Also how does the cerakote hold up on the threads when you screw the adjuster down?

I sent them to board member BBR1628 that posted above. I'm not sure who he had coat them. It's held up great so far and it's been over a year .

Glad you started this thread. Going to be rebuilding my shocks after the season and would like to get them ceracoated black. They look great. 

Who has done this in San Diego and where did you take them to get done?

A little off to the side but I’m going to ask. How much does it cost to have them coated with Cerakote?   Thanks

Well if it costs 100 or more to do a lower for a rifle, it's gotta be thousands to coat shocks right? I bet they run more hot and fade to grey eventually with cerakote?  Now Black shocks matter? Ha

This looks great. What is the best option for springs? Still Cerakote?

I believe it was less than $150 per shock
