    Are you referring to the Fox Factory Podium 1.5 RC2 unit? If so, then yes. I have been running it for 3 years now and just over 15k miles...

    Ahhhh crud! I BELIEVE it did but it was early on in my recovery and the meds kinda messed with my memory then... Sorry! I had several already in my toolbox from my years as a mechanic which is why I can't be 100% sure for ya.....

    At a guess no wrench is included. We run Fox fronts on our RTS and no wrench is included.

    One method to accurately get the facts. BRP may list the instructions on their website. The instructions typically include the included items. You would type in the part number you purchased, the instructions should be there.

    Tons of them online. The size is fairly standard so if you bought one from say Ohlins (https://www.motosport.com/ohlins-shock-spanner-wrench?variant[OHL0016]=OHL0016-X001-Y001), it would work.... I would stay away from the "universal" ones.....

    Nah, there's nothing there, I checked already....

    Well, the first part of your frustration starts with the 2 locking rings being technically "glued" together by the powder coating from the factory! You need to use a hammer and punch to knock the outer ring (the one not touching the spring) loose from the other one and then use your tool on the one that touches the spring to make your adjustment....
