    Spring Setup Advise for new 14" Shock

    Well I got some some 16" - 500lb springs for main and stayed with 12" - 400lbs on pre-load and the car went back to the original ride height which is good. It compress to about 3" inches but this is with no passengers. I guess its better to be soft and not bucking all over the place but I would still like to try some 550 just to see how it would ride. Thank you.

    Spring Setup Advise for new 14" Shock

    Yea I am planning to add bypass a little later though.
  6. Hello all, I wanted to get you option on the spring selection for my new Fox 14 inch coil-overs. My car had 12 inch shock with 400 -12" on top and 500-12" bottom. I think it was soft. For the new 14" I was thinking of getting 400 - ? on top and 550-16" on bottom. Im not sure what to get on top of if I should just stay with 500 on bottom since Im going from 12 to 14 inch shock. I was told I needed 16" spring for 14" shock. Thank you.

    Welding location for shock tube advise

    Well I think I found out what my issue was. Unfortunately I made more work for myself since the geometry was not that bad but I did adjust the shock mount a bit further out and a different angle so the time was not completely a waste. The issue was the original 12 inch shock was too small. I will post some pictures later Im going to try an finish it tonight so it can be ready for the Presidents weekend. After analyzing the geometry of the shock and full droop and full bump I come to realized that my 12 inch shock was too short. What was happening is that when the arm would go beyond that I think is full bump (1 inch before the chassis hits the ground) the angle of the shock would cause it to bind and snap. Now i got some 14 and they are perfect in the sense that they will stop my car about 1/2 beyond what I want full bump to be(I figure I add a taller rubber bumps to the shaft) but I am not using the full travel of the shock its like 2 1/2 inches too long. With the 14 inch shocks are full bump there is some free play so everything is good. I went yesterday to Kartek to by some bypass and they said I should put bump stops to stop the car and not rely on the shocks and bypass. So I got some fox bump stops but after read some post here and I think I should just by some bypass. Im planing to head back to Kartek and return the bumps and buy bybass.

    2018 Summer upgrades on the Desert Dynamics

    Well, I just got my first LT and it was setup to use size 12 shocks. I recently broke my shock rod again. After analyzing the geometry of the shock and full droop and full bump I come to realized that my 12 inch shock was too short. What would happen is that the arm would go beyond that I think is full bump and that is 1 inch before the chassis hits the ground. Not only that but after a certain amount that arm would go up beyond the full bump distance the angle of the shock would cause it to bind. Which I believe lead to my snapping of the rods. Now i got some 14 and they are perfect in the sense that they will stop my car about 1/2 beyond what I want full bump to be(I figure I add a taller bumps). But I went yesterday to Kartek to by some bypass and they said I should put bump stops to stop the car and not rely on the shocks and bypass. I was actually going to post this on my thread. But read some post here and I think I should just by some bypass.

    Thanks jwest2sh. This is the advise that I was looking for. I believe my car needs BumpStops. I was debating on putting some and I have had issues with my shocks snapping and this was do to an over bumped arm causing a bind with the shock.

    For perspective I added this picture so I can try to explain what happened. The green is a crack that went pretty much all the way around except in the back. The blue is where the top shock mount wedged into the eyelet. The eyelet would have pretty much broke off completely with some effort.

    Welding location for shock tube advise

    I already cut the shock mounts and started to work on the new location. The new location will work out good. I was worried for a bit because I wasn't sure I was going to be 90deg or below at full bump but im good. I will take a few more on Saturday.
