The 2.0 Performance Series IFP steering stabilizer helps take the load off your steering components and keep your tires tracking straight and true. Oversized offroad tires have a tendency to seek out traction in any direction. The large knobs and open tread pattern can cause your front end to wander on or off the road. The 2.0 Performance Series IFP stabilizer uses the same advanced damping technology contained in FOX's Performance Series shocks to tame steering feedback from even the most aggressive tires.


  • FOX RACING SHOX 2.0 Dampener with IFP (Internal Floating Piston) which Separates Oil From High-Pressure Nitrogen Gas
  • KINGPIN Universal Steering Dampener Bracket to suit Fox Dampeners and up to 35mm OD Drag link
  • KINGPIN New Chassis end weld on bracket tabs


This kit requires basic level DIY. The chassis end pin mount bracket needs to be cut off and the new supplied chassis bracket tabs welded on.


A steering dampener is simply a damper designed for your steering, It is important however to realize that a steering dampener does NOT and WILL NOT FIX any steering problem. It will only dampen the symptoms.

Stock steering dampeners are designed for stock steering and stock tires. They work well in this application (until around the 100000km mark) and ONLY this application. Throw on some 33” or 35” tires and you’ll be left with a dampener that is not up to the task. When the tire size increases, the steering dampener should be upgraded as well. Larger, aftermarket tires are significantly heavier and harder to control than factory tires, even in on-road applications.

In short the dampeners job is to reduce bump steer feed back into the steering wheel

There are two MAIN types of aftermarket steering dampeners, Emulsion and IFP (Internal Floating Piston). Both are “gas” charged and contain oil. Emulsion shocks are significantly cheaper than their IFP counterpart. These dampers mix the oil with the gas charge. Although the oil is pressurized by the gas, emulsion shocks do not function well in horizontally mounted applications; i.e. steering dampeners. When mounted on its side, the oil rests on the bottom as it’s heavier than the gas which rises to the top. The result, a piston that’s only half-submerged in oil. When the piston starts working back and forth, it’s sloshing and foaming the oil offering almost no damping. For this reason we ALWAYS try to steer people away from emulsion style dampeners. There is another kind…which is foam cell (instead of the nitrogen gas in with the oil sloshing around, its impregnated into foam…and resides in the shock which has no ‘air’ cavity in it…thus the piston is ALWAYS moving though 100% oil. For this reason it will far out preform ANY emulsion style dampener. We sell A LOT of HD 9ways Adjustable Tough Dog steering dampeners for this reason. The Fox you see is an IFP style…and only really suited to offroad focused builds do to its extra firm dampening.

Sorry – that turned into an essay quickly!
