I've been doing more research on the zone 4.25 combo kit I just installed and i got to test it out on the rocks this weekend. It did very well but as always my mind is racing with what mod I can do next.
So for my first question. I read through Zone's website that their springs give 10" of total travel. If this is the case, then why would they ship front shocks with 10" of travel but rear shocks with only 8"?
Next question I get plenty of droop in my suspension but I would like to get more up travel.
My bump stops got used a lot this weekend and i know right now my shocks are whats limiting up travel.
Anyways I have a friend who is very mechanically incline (owned a business that built Baja race trucks and now does civilian contracting building rigs for our government currently the USMC) so he knows his stuff. I'm thinking of asking him to outboard my rear shocks and relocate the lower mounting brackets. And in the front relocate the lower and upper bracket. I have read to get more up travel you need to either lower the lower bracket (why would anyone do that) or raise the upper. Can I have him fab brackets to work for 12" of travel and still run my 10" travel shocks so I don't unseat my springs.
One day I would like to get different springs that would allow for 12" of travel but not yet. And it would seem silly to make everything (shock mounts) to work for 10" of travel if a year or do down the road I upgrade to longer travel springs.
I think I need to go do more reading.
Anyways a couple of pictures from the trip
