I'll be curious to see how the FOAs work out. I've seen very mixed reviews about them, but they've been on the market for quite a while now.

The FOA bypasses won’t work very well with the hose coming out of the top cap, but that’s an easy fix with a fitting, some drilling/honing/TIG work, and a plug for the top cap.

I had FOA coilovers, bypasses and bumps on my last truck, and I loved them for the price. I also have some F150 bolt on shocks for my daily driver in the rear and they work great..I would probably never buy more expensive shock brands even if i could ever afford them.. What I have heard is that a lot of the customers are mud trucking people which would make sense why they have a rep for leaking.. the seals have lasted for me and rebuilding them is cheap and quick. They also have two O-rings on the sealheads.

Care to elaborate on why lower resi is more effective and what it combats. I forgot why they are better.
And yes the insides of the bypass tubes have been a little rough. Meanwhile enjoy this photo of cholo mustaches bumper, i just was recommended some DR members method wheel review and apparently he likes stashes.

The lower resi helps to ramp up the dampening on full compression/bump zone. Especially on solid pistons. Fluid has nowhere to go. With top mounted resi the gas charge can still compress.

We ran the expensive 16`s. Snapped both shafts in half on 2nd or 3rd trip. Simply bolted in some sway a ways and they worked fine for about 8 yrs with no issues until the truck was linked. I added that part to say the geometry was good... shocks just broke. Only experience I have with non white rocket ones.
