Default Fox 2.5 Spanner wrenches

Hi, for those that have the Fox 2.5 coilovers, where did you order your spanner wrenches? They are expensive! IMO, they should already come with them!!!


On their website, it states I would need 2 of them?




(803-00-732) 2.5 Aluminum Coil-Over Preload Spanner Wrench
(803-00-733) 2.5 Aluminum Coil-Over Backup Spanner Wrench



Do I really need the preload and backup spanner wrench? Where did you guys order them online and if there's other generic ones w/o paying $50 for each, please let me know!


Thanks!!!

You need two as the backup nut is smaller diameter, offroad warehouse has them for $6 each for the 2.5 wrenches. The synergy wrench works for both

I made a leverage optimizer (cheater bar) to turn the nuts. makes it much easier as it is hard to generate sufficient torque with those 6" long spanner wrenches.

Hmm.. great. Now I need to figure out how to make a cheater bar to rotate it. Fun fun.
