How much preload do you think is needed to get that 2" of lift? I am starting to work on mine now that I have put a few hundred miles on and am chasing the best setup. I have added enough front and rear to expose an inch of threads. Still have a slight tire rub up front that I'd like to get rid of.I had a similar experience recently with them also. The guy spent 30 minutes with me on the phone discussing the different options and the pros and cons of each.
Just to follow up on some of the above comments. The Gen 3 and Performance 2.0 versions are longer shocks as compared to the Gen 2. Using any type of lift brackets with the longer shocks will allow the suspension to over droop and bind up well before the shocks run out of travel. I tried mocking up my Performance 2.0 on the front with Highlifter brackets and would of had to compress the shock probably an inch just to get it to bolt in. With no lift brackets the shocks are just about the perfect length as you have to push the arms up about 1/2" away from binding to get them bolted up. You can easily get 2" of lift out of them with no brackets and the proper preload.
Thanks Josh. So I'm on the same page, where are you measuring the ground clearance up front?Hello, any time you add preload you can run the compression adjustment at the softest point. After riding adjust as needed. It really varies from one driver to another and different terrain etc. If you have one inch of threads over the front spanner collars you may only need to add a little more if any. Measure your front clearance. 10.9 inch is oe clearance.
