    Fox 2.0 Performance Series ATS Stabilizer

    So my Fox stabilizer finally arrived last Thursday and I was able to install it later that day.
    Had some issues with the initial install and since this is a new product from Fox, they still have a few issues to work out.
    The install will work in the factory stabilizer position or at the track bar position.
    1. If you have an aftermarket track bar, such as I do, the NUT cannot be used to re-thread onto the FOX bolt shaft. You will have to locate your old trackbar NUT with the tab on it and use it. The thread pitch is different.
    2. the bolt shaft supplied by fox is not long enough for the stabilizer to move forward (if you have an aftermarket tie rod, that faces outward) Or position the stabilizer in a different manor, but make sure it does not come in contact with other componets at full articulation. I had to use 4 very thick washers to bring the Stabilizer away from the track bar (which brought the stabilizer to rest on some threads) which can ruin your spherical bearings and you may need replacement spherical bearings , until the threads wear down. This is because the angle is very sharp from this postion for the stabilizer to the tie rod, hence the need for the spacers. (i have contacted Fox and this was their recommendation).
    3. The face plate that bolts the stabilizer to the tie rod is made out of aluminum. I have a lot of exeperience with these type of face plates, they are prone to fatigue (hairline cracks), and since the face plate faces towards the ground, very prone to landing on a rock and cracking very easily.

    Aside from the minor install issues the actual product feels like a dream. It takes the rough jolts of the road and makes them barely noticable. It's the 5th shock you never had that you always needed, when running larger tires.
    you have 24 clicks of adjustment to adjust the sensitivity of the stabilizer. A setting of 14 to 16 for street driving seems to be a range I like best. 10 - 12 clicks seemed to loose ( but buttery smooth). At higher settings you can feel more bumps from the road.

    It's worth every penny!

    I have the stabilizer but I cant figure out how to adjust it. What part of the stablizer clicks? I know this is probably a silly question but I cant find any info on how to adjust the thing.
