    The shock mount on the front axle rubs my RS 9000s. Hs anyone trimmed theirs? I can see a small part has the paint rubbed off, but other than that it is fine. Would it rub more if the suspension is flexed or compressed? I only have the lower (rear) shock mounted now and it rubs slightly when I put the shock on.

    I trimmed mine about a 1/4" maybe more but I went for the front mount and fit a longer shock
