    I think we're both thinking the other is talking about something different, which then would make what we're actually talking about incorrect, physically impossible, actually.

    I just can't get through to Randy cuz we speak different colors of tie wraps. For the record, guys, he's not as stupid as he's making himself sound. Or for bantering with an equally as stupid moron on teh interwebz. It's kinda cute, actually, how wrong he is by assuming I'm wrong for assuming he's wrong when neither of us are wrong at all. Damned Florida people.

    Well that ain't right. Looks like skipping the bolt that keeps the shock extenders pin in the downward position was a bad idea. I only skipped them because I couldn't find them so I swung by ace the expensive place and got some grade 8 boys.

    Also measured for shocks for the third time but now I have a picture to refer back to. I also measure distance before bump out and its 4.5" which is more than I expected. I forgot to put a dab of grease to see of its bottoming out but i don't think it is. Personally I feel like the springs binding because at ride height the lower coils are already bound up tight which is odd. You can kinda see the coil in the last pic.

    Also added a little more preload to the driver side it dropped about 3/4" and the passenger dropped 1/4". Brought driver up to Passenger height at 33.75" which gives it a tad more rake which is okay in my book.

    Alright talked to Atomic and got some rear shocks ordered. Viking# D216, compressed is 14.75 and extended is 23.75 should work perfect with the shock extenders and hopefully fix the ride quality issue.

    Yep double adjustable or bust, I'd seriously consider the Vikings over QA1 they are a good bit cheaper. These cost me $415 that's taxes delivery everything. I think the QA1 DA were about $300 each plus all the other BS.

    Their site is total shit, here is the product guide. Page 17 for double adjustable smooth bodys. They suggest warrior series for street driven stuff.
