|August 20, 2007 - Well, the droop problem is certainly solved.|
The measurement from the hub to the fender lip is 16.5" in the rear and 14.5" in the front - that's a full extra inch in front and a lot more in the rear.
The shocks have SAE spherical joints in them, so they need SAE bolts. In the front I can drill out a 12mm hole to clear the 1/2" bolt, but in the rear the shock bolt goes into a captive nut in the control arm. I'll talk to the shock engineers - they're very responsive - to see what they have to say.
