Building several buggy's prior to doing my rear steer conversation we always had around two inch's of rod for ride height. The idea was/is to have more down travel than up as there is no ride quality needed. But again when it came to shocks Sean my good friend did that end. I was the build the axles, bend the tube, mostly design the chassis and weld it type of guy, lol.
1993 YJ 4.0 60 Front, Rear steer 60, bolth spooled, 5.38's, 700r/241 39.5 iroks and beating it like it owes me money.
And on the 8th day, God created the 14 bolt....
