Default Fox shocks on 2017 F150

Does anybody know if 2nd gen Fox suspension will fit on a 2017 F150? They were originally on a raptor. I attached a pic.

The rears will fit. The fronts will not fit without some modifications due to a design change. The bottom of the strut has a different mounting design on the 15+ trucks

The rears should work. I have them on my truck (2014 f150 4wd) but it has a 2" rear block instead of a 1.25" and an additional add a leaf to get a total of 2.25" of extra lift in the rear. You will need this amount to get the shock to ride about 25" in length for normal driving as this is where the shock is designed to ride on the newer raptors aka, you are in the comfort zone for the shock. They are about perfect for a 4" lift as the lengths of the raptor shocks are nearly identical to a 4" lift rear shock.

The front's, you will also have to have a lift on there to even have a hope of working as they are even longer than the previous gen raptor and those guys can't run them without modification. I also don't know if the UCA or LCA are different on the raptor.

For the rears, here is a picture of mine and how close they are (My fingers were very tight in there) with a lt295/55/r20 (33x11.5") nitto ridge grappler tire on factory wheels.You can't go wider than a 11.5" tire with these on factory wheels.
