Well, if you were gonna go 14's I would go with a 175lbs/175lbs combo. If you choose 16's I would go 150lbs/175lbs combo.Mieser said:Here are the specs so far...
There is about 500lbs on each corner ( sprung weight )
-shocks are 14" or 16" ( depending how much room I am going to have
-the shocks are set in the middle, 7-8" uptravel, 7-8" downtravel.
-The lower shock mount is going to be right on the knuckle
-The upper shock mount is going to be canted in just a bit to allow clearance. I would guess at the worst 5-8 degrees
The front is a 'cradle' design 4-link ( lower links converging at the t-case, upper links parallel.
Rear is the same as the front link design
I want the best overall use springrate. Lots of rockcrawling, followed by some good pre-running type stuff.
Thanks for the help
Yes, I won't have to figure all this out if I go with ORI struts...
Mieser, it's an ancient Chinese secret... As far as lengths go, it depends upon what lengths shocks you want.Mieser said:Thanks pig....
Could you explain why you chose what you did? I am trying to figure out the methods behind it.
Also, what length coils?
