Take the shocks off and flex it out as far as it can go. Then by process of elimination, use the best shock.

it rides ok on the road / but off road when you go into a dip its a drag , i read you can go 3 inchs safely with a stock shock , but the new springs gave me over 4 indhs ,then then i used 1 1/4 boomsrangs. so that put me over the edge i'll see over the weekend thank you.
