Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

lolife99, I didn't think about that. How much do you think I should cut off? I also do not want the bag rubbing on the pocket..

Re: I am getting excited about my Panel!!

Personally I would cut as much as possible. I can’t remember the total height but it seems like somewhere between 1-5/8 to 2 inches total height when done.
You might have to mock up just the cup in the a-arm to see how much too tall it is.
The shorter the better in my opinion.
I have tubular a-arms and I still think the ride height is too tall.
Much more than my old 5.5/6 static drop.

Also what brand bags are you using?
You can usually go to their website and find the correct ride height.
Then you’ll need to remember the pressure to get them at that height,... or with Accuair, set your sensors at that height.
Also have your front end alignment done at that height.
Convert to disc brakes.
