Hi guys what are the ideal coil over shocks to use with an st3. How long should they be and how thick?

ST3/ST2-LT plans show Fox 2.0 series non-coil over Air Shocks. Front = Fox #980-99-013-A (Page E07 of plans), Rear = Fox #980-99-020-A (Page E02 of plans). You can substitute coil over shocks, however, you may have to make adjustments to the shock mounts to allow for the larger diameter body of the springs.

I prefer coil over shocks. Do you thing 19" at the back an 16" at the front will be ok. ?

??? since the OD of coilover is larger you have to possibly mover the mounts so they will clear arms. You will have to measure for length then using weight at ea corner, and motion rate of arm, determine spring to use.

Probably too late for you but we are using Ford Ranger Air shocks (Autozone) on our ST3's. They are 22.5" eye to eye. You do have to set them up with their own fill valves (rather than using a T) or the buggy will lean a lot in turns. We have had them down to Coal Creek in TN and they worked great. These are on the rear and we have coil overs in front.
