    Thank you!

    Do you lift the rear any? I've noticed that running 5lbs or so in the bags pretty much lifts the rear about an 1/2 to 1 inch. Which is what you get out of these rear shocks.

    How much did you lift the front?

    Is the ride better?

    I appreciate the help.

    I have fox 2.5s in the front at 3". I have coachbuilder +2 shackles in the back which gives me 1.25" of lift but will be replacing those with pro form 2" shackles for more rear lift/rake. I don't know what PSI my bags are right now but I would guess 20 psi. I base it more on the rear height cause I like a little rake. With the higher lift of the new shackles I will air down the bags. No complaints with the ride. It rides great with what i have them aired up with. I have a topper and decked system.
