I've got a couple questions. If you plan to use the full amount of travel those shocks offer, how are you going to do it so that the shock bottoms out before the frame hits the ground?
Also, I like the idea of a zero bump steer bike, but I also have my doubts about building one while using a stock blaster chassis.
Third, is this going to be a setup for a straight line desert bike?
I'm planning on using a lower ball joint (RS3003) but heim uppers and tie rod ends because of the amount of articulation needed. At +5, the RS3003's will offer approximately 11.34" of travel bind to bind which is WAY more than enough to soak up those soft works shocks.
The lower mount on the works is going to be out near the very outside of the lower control arm for two reasons. #1 weight carrying capacity. I'm heavy so my suspension needs to be able to carry my fat ass
#2 better valving control. These shocks are designed for a slightly different application so mounting farther out should put the valving at more of an advantage for my application.
Lastly, I have never wanted nor would ever want to venture out into the middle of nowhere with just a blaster and myself to survive on...... there are no super long straight line desert runs in my future but I'd like to think this would be the setup that it could be done on.....
