    Difference between rally and merv?

    What's the difference other than cosmetics? Anything?

    Arms are longer, creating a wider stance.
    Shock shafts are longer, creating more suspension travel. (I believe... for sure on a Mustang)

    Due to the longer arms... axles and rods are longer.

    And of course, looks.... which means probably different body mounts.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Ok great. Thanks! I was just wondering because they look so identical yet behave so differently.

    Arms, drive shafts, wheels and tires, front bumper/body mount, rear bumper, camber links, pushrods... the shock shafts are the same but the rally has limiters to shorten the travel.

    The KB has limiters? Is it similar to the fuel tubing mods people, including myself, have done with a spacer in the body, on the shaft, below the piston?
