Yes it did. That explains that.

It's amazing how much tighter the dash is now. I can push on it and it no longer budges. Lately, it's been the little things like that.

I have a squeak like that but is not the bracket nuts. Mine are all there

It seems that it is the AC lines as they cross the firewall but am not 100% sure yet.

Check the nuts that hold the heaterbox to the firewall, there are atleast 5 or 6 of them. The lines go through a big foam/ rubber piece, doubt that makes noise

On another note, I've been going through and really cleaning this thing up recently--cutting what I didn't like off the cage, cleaning up the fuel cell plumbing, adjusting the brake booster pushrod to take all of the slack out of the pedal, sealing up the soft top seams, etc. Adding to that, I've always had an intermittent dash squeak and it's driven me nuts for a long time. I finally decided to get down to business today and I found the source--apparently, the factory decided not to put nuts on 2 of the 4 upper dash retention studs. If you pull the defrost vent strip off you'll see M6 x 1.0 studs across the width of the tub that secure the main dash structure. The two outer studs had nuts but they were loose and the two inner studs were nutless. I picked up some M6 x 1.0 nylock nuts and some washers and torqued it all down. Tight, movement and squeak free dash.

Happy day.
I am going to check that this afternoon to see if thats where my squeak is coming from . Thanks for posting this .

I'm looking into new shocks. I'd like to stick with 11" travel in the ~17/28 compressed/extended length range.

I'm looking at Bilstein 5165's, which are perfect length-wise....and actually would provide me 11.6" total travel. The only problem is that they're only available in 255/70 valving, which I think will be a bit too heavy for my rear end.

I'm also looking into Fox 2.0 smooth body remote res's. On Poly Perf, there are no valving details.

Any input? Light rear end, standard front end.

My current 255/70 are too heavy for my rear end. Have you considered some 11" 5125s with 170/60 valving?

Yep, that's what I run in the rear right now. I run the heavier valving in the front. They're OK but I know it could be better.

I'd like to experiment with something else.

Anyone know what kind of valving the Fox IFP remote res's come with from Poly?

Mine are 40/60 what ever that converts to. The more I drive it the more I like it.

Fox's default valving is 40/60 if not specified otherwise. You can order them with any valving you would like though.

If you want to get serious about the shocks, order Fox 2.0s and ship them to Wayne and let him valve them based on your specs. Better if he actually tuned with you but I bet he can get you valved better over the phone than choosing any factory available valving from fox.

OK, good deal. I plan on talking to Wayne but I doubt I'll do it immediately. I'd like to run them as long as they're in the ball park then get them tuned later on so that I can compare the differences.

James, you've got them once I'm done with them. 255/70 front, 170/60 rear, both 11" travel.

Just the rears, I'll swap the twelves to the front. I think they will be better there.
