Measuring for new shocks?

I always try and set up suspension with about 25% up travel and 75% droop. Meaning all but 1" of the shock travel is being used up on full compression (bumpstops touching).

 

I don't have access to a fork truck so I do it like this...

 

When building the front suspension I hook up all the control arms and pull the coils out. Mount one of front tires. Jack up that side until the tire is within 1" of touching the fender (after final fender cutting). If the bumpstops aren't touching the distance that remains between them is how much bumpstop needs to be added. For instance if you jack it up and the tire is 1" from the fender and there is a 2" gap between the bumpstops I add 2" to the bumpstops so that they touch when the tire is 1" away from the fender.

 

Now the bumpstops are right and I move on to shocks.

 

With the new bumpstops in I fully compress that side of the suspension again (with or without the tire on)(doesn't matter because the bumpstops are right now!) Next I measure the distance between the shock mounts. I add 1" to this measurement. That gives me the compressed length of the shock. Next you fully droop that side of suspension and measure the distance between the shock mounts. This gives me the extended length of the shock. Now I know what size shocks to order.

 

When ordering shocks I usually look for one that has the compressed length that I am needing and whatever travel shock that ends up being is whatever it is.

 

This method of setting up front suspensions gives you most ideal setup. It sets your bumpstops so your tires don't hit. It gives you the most ideal shock for your suspension height that will give you the most droop possible and gives you a shock that isn't too long or too short.

 

I always hate to see nicely built long arm setups where people are running shocks that are way too short. It drastically reduced the amount of droop that they could be getting out of their front end. I have a buddy with a TJ who installed a Full Traction long arm and installed the shocks that they sent with the kit. The shocks were obviously from a smaller lift kit because they were way short for his 6" lift. This caused his front suspension to only droop a limited amount. He could not use the suspension to it's full potential until we measured for the correct shock. After buying the right length shock it flexes amazing!

 

Shew.... tired of typing now. :cheers:

 

 

I no there is more out there this just my list. Fell free to add your list and maybe this could become a sticky. :nuts:

x2 on the sticky. i was just thinking the other day there should be a sticky for each common tech thread since so much of it gets repeated. of course, we all like to talk shop so that's probably not a big deal but it would be a quick reference for a lot of things, but this works fine IMO.

 

Great job Rockhound, and thanks for putting in the time to do it!

Great idea. Love having the resources and thanks for the work on putting them together. :cheers:

 

That is a cool list from CJ-5, but there is one thing on there that does not actually exist... "LJ" is not a real body code, but only something that has been created in the minds of Jeepers and simply means "Long Jeep". The 2003 - 2006 "Unlimited" Wrangler still falls under the TJ body code.
