It’s incredibly important to cycle the suspension and check for clearance and binding issues. We like to mock up the shocks in place with one coil installed. This gives us a better idea of where extra clearance might be needed, while still allowing the suspension to be compressed and articulated. Our upper rear shock mounts will sandwich the body and attach to the frame-mounted rollcage. Removing the nitrogen from one of your shocks simplifies the mockup process. In most cases, it’s best to start with the suspension fully compressed when selecting shock lengths, finding ride height, and figuring out the amount of wheel travel you want.
