(IFP) Internal Floating Piston Shock
- Oil and Nitrogen are separated by a floating piston.
- Oil and Nitrogen are both in a single shock body.
- Very little room for Nitrogen. Pressure can get very high.
- High pressure makes the seals squeeze hard = wear out faster and worse ride.
- Not as much shock travel because the IFP needs room to move.
- Nitrogen fill port can be very difficult to access.
- Most 2.0’s are only rebuildable by the factory (expensive, or not an option)
- IFP shock would be adequate for a mostly street driven vehicle that sees very little high speed off-road use. These are considered a “throw away” shock once they are worn out.
- Average price for an OEM fit 2.0 Fox IFP Shock is around $170/each
