August 20, 2007 - If you thought the rear had some bump travel, check out the front.
After 5" of compression, the wheel is firmly planted into the fender and the suspension is bound up - and there's still at least 2" of travel left in the shock. That's ridiculous.
Given that there are only 7" springs on these shocks, there's no way I'd be able to use this much travel anyhow. It looks like the car could run 8" springs for my ride height front and rear, but something needs to be done to control that travel a bit. If the upper shock mounts were more like the Ohlins design with the bumpstop flush with the top of the mount - instead of embedded in that big tube - it might be about right.
