What I'm saying is their recommendation works if/when things are matched. CPP coils could have a 700# rate; Belltechs springs could be a 1000# rate. That difference will impact how the shocks work.

Did he ask you about the spring rate to know the valving of their 'drop-shock' was actually a better match? My bet is no because people seem to like recommending 'new' parts w/o really trying to help you work through YOUR existing combo. Like I said, the shorter/stiffer shocks are worth a shot if they work w/your needs.

How much room was there before the bump-stop made contact now that you've trimmed things? Did Belltech provide you w/drop-shock dimensions to compare w/your set-up?

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....
