Did that hurt or help your down and up travel?

He would never do anything that would decrease travel unless it was absolutely necessary.

The amount of wheel travel only changed a small bit, due to the new angle of the shock. The new shock mounting points are about 1" further apart now, so, by using the same shock, the wheel will travel up further and droop less. It's not going to be a major change and I bet I'm the only one that will notice anything different.

Driver side, lower mount is on. Going to have to cut the exhaust short, just above the trackbar, to get the upper mount in. I'm thinking I can clamp on an exhaust turn-down tip to orient the exhaust from there.

Mounts are all in. I'll figure out the exhaust tomorrow, or some other time. Then I need to make a decision on shocks.

If you switch let me know, i could use as spares or get them rebuilt when needed and swap every couple years :-)

All back together now. Drove it to work this morning and the rear suspension is acting much better. That shock must have been dead for a LONG time.
