I know I've seen something about this but searches did not turn up anything valuable. I need some help in determining how to mount my shocks. I have a Tubular Dynamics replica frame and have modified NAERC suspension to fit. Due to the modifications I'm going to have to "engineer" the mounting locations.

My question is "Should the rear shocks be mounted so that at normal static ride position the shocks are at the middle of their travel?" If I'm not mistaken, normal static ride position would have the lower a-arms basically parallel to the ground.

Any opinions?

Thanks,

Mike

Your lower a-arm should be approximately parallel to the ground at ride height. You will have to determine where on the chassis to mount them by using the height of your tires. If you are using coil-over shocks they should be compressed approximately one third of there total travel distance when at ride height.
