Sure is fun to justify your purchase isn't it?......
There are different models for a reason.......we all have different needs/wants.

What you consider a requirement, I could possibly care less about.....
I was just responding to a few members that wanted to justify their purchase and find a silly reason to fault the ZR2.

Which is what did. ZR2s are cool but not for everyone so why did you choose to belittle the Z71?

Not having an option to service a very expensive shock is not a silly reason to fault a ZR2. 36k miles comes up quick for a lot of people. The ZR2 is pretty awesome but it has faults. So no reason to act like your truck is better than someone else's or that owning one somehow elevates your status.

He didnít start it. Some one said something like ďI sure am enjoying my Z71 more and moreĒ alluding to ďIím glad I bought a Z71 instead of a ZR2 now after seeing a few have issues with the shocks leakingĒ. He got a few likes I think and some one post commented agreeing with him.

So it started with a few folks possibly intoxicated, attempting to belittling the ZR2. Bigmick just setting them straight.

How can anyone deny that the ZR2 is an upgrade to the Z71 in just about every way. Itís just a fact.

Odd. The ones that have posted, it has been the left rear only. Production run issue?

Im curious what the spec is for nitrogen pressure. I ran my bilstein 7100's at 225psi on my jeep. Those shocks were easy to rebuild, revalve and adjust pressure in.

i dont know. i know the UCA'S are a nice upgrade but i believe the Multimatics are very comparable to the remote resi foxs or even kings. im not sure you could tell much, if any difference, in both setups when driving. Multimatic claims the DSSV'S will not overheat and i plan to find out with long, hard runs in the dunes. The spool valve technology is said to be the next great thing in bypass shocks. i read Fox or King, cant remember, plans to go that route with their new shocks for the Raptor. Looking forward to finding out what these shocks can do on our mid-travel ZR2's.

One of the things that stood out to me on my first test drive in the zr2 was how much better it drove on the street compared to my fj that had the uni ball upper control arms and fox 2.5s and 2.0s in the rear.
In the desert, they are extremely close. zr2 has better bottoming resistance I always had the foxes rebuilt annually and all 4 shocks were valved specifically for the fj. zr2 wins on the street and desert.

Fox is only 20 miles from me and always gave me A+ service. As a side note the stainless uni ball joint is undoubtedly stronger than a standard ball joint, but they will get loud with age. even assembled with
antiseize the control arm must be removed to replace the joint. Lucky toyota alignment is performed at the lower control arm.
