    Slayden Setup: Front Shock Bottom Position #2? 2nd hole from outside? Near tire?

    I'm almost finished doing the Slayden setup on my 4x4 Ultimate.
    I'm concerned about the Front Shock position at the bottom holes
    (What is the "Shock-Front-Bottom #2" Actual hole to use ?).

    I understand his recommendation for "Front Shock Bottom" is to be hole #2.
    From looking at the diagrams for other suspension points / holes;
    The #1 hole is closest to the tire (outside), so #2 is the next one over.

    My concern is that I've adjusted my front shocks to 95mm, as Slayden directs, and while mounted to Bottom Hole #2,
    it is barely long enough to allow any downward angle of the A-Arms when the car is lifted.


    I had been running my shocks in Stock Hole #3, which allowed more downswing...

    Am I using the right Hole #2?

    #2 hole is actually the 3rd hole from shock tower. The one closet to shock tower is for the swaybar then the next one is #1 and then #2 and so on

    Thanks.
    That's how I have it. It just seemed weird enough to me to want to double check. I'll give this a try.

    Thanks again for the help.

    The only dumb question is the question not asked. Better safe than sorry. Let us know how you like the setup

    Thanks.
    The only thing I'm missing is the correct springs. They got backordered at the LHS.
    I'm tempted to go to the other LHS across the river for them, but I don't want to deal with dumping the order, or having extra springs...
    I'll bite my tongue and wait till they come in.

    For now, I've got the Slayden setup with stock 4x4 Ultimate Big Bore Springs.
    Better than nothing...
    I learned alot about my car while reading and doing this.
    I'll be able to understand enough to make tweaks if needed.

    That is a good thing! Knowing your truck helps a lot in the long run Sometimes it worth the wait to support a worth while hobbyshop.
