Some more detail on the rear bumps, because I feel like I'm still missing something after thinking about it all night:
I'm missing the jounce cup, but fitted in an extension in it's place, just for demonstration...so ignore the extension mounted to the upper perch.
With the old RE shocks that have a compressed length of 14.8", I'm still struggling with the idea that I'd have to come up with almost 6" of bump below the cup. Pic 2 shows I'm compressed to about 1/4" of shock shaft showing.
I'm still waiting on my Rancho 5000x to come in, but they have a compressed length of 15", so I'm even worse-off there.
I've cruised so many threads on setting bump and cycling suspension, and I'm still at a loss. Any ideas?
