    If you can lift up the rear of the vehicle with the shocks disconnected. Then compress them about 1" or so and angle them in until the shock eyes line up to where the ideal mounting place is. This way you know you have full droop and you will most likely have more than enough shock left at bump. Hope that helps ya out some.

    I put a .200" radius on the ones I have made. Seemed to work pretty well The offset is determined by how much you want to move your axle. If you want to move it 1", put a 1" offset in it.
