    We ensured no chafing issues when routing the fuel lines by encasing them in hoses where they passed our frame plates installed to reinforce the bump stop locations...

    Now that we have the upper and lower shock locations dialed, we need to smash the suspension while the leaf packs are still apart and measure the distance between them, then put the spring packs back together and droop this bad boy out to get the long measurement as well. This will give us the information we need to order up our shocks. Here is what the rear system looks like at full droop. We measured for our limit straps as well. All measurements were realistic with buffers to allow for limit strap stretch and plenty of room at smash and full droop to ensure our shocks would not be a limiting factor.

    Rear suspension travel appears to be a clean 17 inches. This image was printed, laminated and is on the fridge! Big Bird Tribute is coming to life!
