1. When designing a suspension it is important to determine the ride height as well as full-stuff and droop positions. I am using 11-inch-travel Ford Super Duty coilover shocks from Icon Vehicle Dynamics, and I want the axle to have 51/4 inches of uptravel and 53/4 inches of downtravel. This nearly equal amounts of travel should make the suspension work well all around.
