i should make a new thread but i want to keep my build thread as active as possible, and my questions do pertain to the "build" so... can anyone give me the specs of the hydro 8000 shocks that came with my 5.5 inch kit ie. compressed and extended length? im needing to put the finish work into the lift so i can ride the trails and not have to worry about my spring falling out every time i get twisty. i want to know how much down travel i can get before the shock is being used as the limiter. my other issue is in the rear. the kit originally comes with 3.5inch 6 leaf packs. with the 1.5 inch shackle that comes out to 5 inches advertised. well i like to ride geared up, so i didnt want major sag, and i like the stance of a bit of rake to the front. i ordered a 1"aal, making the pack a 4.5inch. then i just ran the shackle at the 1" holes rather than the 1.5". my ride is very stiff in the rear. i think i have tougher suspension than a 1 ton truck, haha. seriously thought, its rough. also, i can see that if i stuff the rear tires, the shackles will hit the back of the shackle housing and limit articulation. the shackles are also sitting at an angle(the bottom of the shackle being farther away from the front of the vehicle). i assume that shackle relocation brackets will help with some of this issue? atleast getting a verticle shackle which is what i want correct? give me some ideas and comments, i will add more of my own as i get responses.
